Women's Soccer Loses to Rice in Overtime

SAN JOSE, Calif.—The San Jose State women’s soccer team lost its second Western Athletic Conference game to visiting Rice University, 2-1, in overtime Sunday at Spartan Stadium.

Rice’s Ashley Anderson broke a scoreless tie with a goal at 66:51 to put the Owls ahead. The Spartans didn’t allow the Owls to score again in regulation.

The Spartans’ Kristina Jacob managed to score after the Spartans were awarded a corner kick with only seven seconds on the clock to the game.

Rice hit the game-winning goal less than 12 minutes into the overtime period for just their second win of the year, improving to 2-5-0 overall and 1-1-0 in WAC games.

The Spartans drop to 2-7-0 overall and 1-1-0 in WAC games. The Spartans will head to Texas, where they will face the UTEP Miners next Friday and then head to SMU for a Sunday match against the Mustangs.
