It was a back and forth battle of grit and physicality at Husky Stadium Friday afternoon as the Huskies would be tested against the University of Mary Marauders .
Huskies would maintain offensive possession throughout most of the first half on the pitch however it would prove to be a back and forth battle overall as for the Marauders, it was their defense that kept the Huskies effective passing and offensive opportunities at bay leading to 0-0 score going into the second half.
The offense wouldn’t take long to get started in the second half as the junior forward Jenna Dominguez puts the Huskies up 1-0 early, 45:17 right out of the gate in the 2nd half with a floater over the head of an outstretched Madisyn Waltman .
Marauders would bounce back ten minutes later with freshman Kendra Park, as she ties it 1-1 near the end of the 56th minute of play. That 1 goal lead wouldn’t last long as University of Mary waste little time in capitalizing on their lead just 1 minute and 17 seconds later with a battle-tested goal by senior forward Hannah Richter giving the Marauders a 2-1 lead at 57:17 of play.
Huskies would bounce back with the returning senior Nicole Friis tying it up just a few minutes later making it 2-2 at the 60 minute mark of play.
That score would stay put through regulation and both overtimes as the Huskies and Marauders battle it out to a draw after the 110 minutes of play concluded.
