GU women fall in overtime to Gaels

The Gonzaga women’s soccer team forced overtime with two goals in the final 1:15 of regulation, but Saint Mary’s scored with 45 seconds left in the second overtime for a 3-2 West Coast Conference victory Sunday in Spokane.

After spotting the Gaels two first-half goals, the Bulldogs (6-6, 0-1 WCC) got on the board when Saint Mary’s scored an own goal at the 88:45 mark. With 26 seconds before the end of regulation, Morgan Manchester scored to tie the match. A Gaels defender tried to clear the ball at the goal line after Lauren Luke’s header, and the ball hit Manchester’s head and went in for the equalizer.
