Spartan Women's Soccer Ties Sacramento State in a Rescheduled Match

SACRAMENTO, Calif.—The San Jose State University women’s soccer team ended its season with a tied match against Sacramento State Sunday, Nov. 4 in Sacramento. The match originally scheduled to be played on Sept. 16., was postponed until this weekend.

The teams played nearly 60 minutes of scoreless soccer, until senior midfielder Krisitna Jacob scored unassisted at 57:48 to take a 1-0 lead.
The goal is Jacob’s fifth of the season and puts her atop the team in scoring with 14 points.

The Hornets were able to tie the game when Lori Kerswell set-up Lisa Wrightsman’s ninth goal of the season. The two teams finished regulation in a 1-1 tie and the game ended with no overtime played.

The Spartans finish the season 5-13-1 overall and 3-4-0 in the Western Athletic Conference, but were unable to secure a birth in the WAC Tournament this season, the first time the Spartans haven’t been in the tournament since joining the WAC in 1996.
