PORTLAND, Ore. - The UNLV women's soccer team suffered a second-straight 1-0 loss, this time at the hands of Portland State in double overtime on the road on Friday afternoon at Hillsboro Stadium.
UNLV (1-2) held a slight 13-11 shot advantage, including 4-1 in the two overtime periods. However, it would be the Vikings' lone shot of the extra period that would be the game-winner. Amanda Dutra sent a free kick into the box that found Kayla Henningsen, and she would send a shot past the UNLV goalkeeper for the score in the 107th minute.
Four players all attempted two shots each for UNLV, while Kylie Wassell finished with five saves in the net. Melissa Ferguson was credited with six saves to earn the shutout for PSU (1-2).
UNLV returns to action on Sunday, with a 1 pm contest at Oregon.
