LAST TIME OUT: @RAZORBACKSOCCER AT LSU (9.19.14)

  • In a thrilling affair that featured three ties and saw LSU (4-6-1, 0-2-1 SEC) quickly respond to a pair of Arkansas (5-2-4, 1-0-2 SEC) game-tying goals, the Razorbacks were not only able to snap their decade long losing streak to the Tigers, but they were also able to extend their unbeaten streak to five games (2-0-3). Arkansas ended its two-game Southeastern Conference road trip with a pair of ties to remain unbeaten in SEC play.
  • Freshman Nicole Ortega sent the game into overtime, as she scored her first career goal with just seven seconds remaining in regulation. A pair of headers off a Tyler Allen free kick from sophomores Claire Kelley and Erika Miller guided the ball to Ortega, who then buried a shot in front of the six-yard box to tie the game a 3-3.

@COLBYHALEUA SOUNDBITES
On the LSU game
“Honestly, in the first half I thought we had the better of play, but in both boxes we lacked urgency. LSU is a good team and for us to go down three times and fight our way back into the game, showed a lot of fight and a lot of heart. Today was a good game for spectators and the national TV audience to watch. Obviously there are some things defensively we need to clean up, but overall I am super pleased with the performance.”
