Down 1-0 in the second half, the Wright State women's soccer rallied for a 2-1 double overtime win Friday at IPFW in the season opener for both teams.
The Mastodons opened the scoring with a goal at the 26:32 mark of the first half and IPFW maintained that 1-0 edge for the next 43 minutes.
At the 69:32 mark of the second half, however, the Raiders tied it as senior forward Emilie Fillion scored her first goal of the season as her shot beat the IPFW goalkeeper on the right. Sophomore midfielder Mackenzie Hamilton was credited with the assist.
It stayed that way for the remainder of regulation, throughout the first overtime period and looked to be the final score until sophomore midfielder Kalee Thompson came up with the game-winner with just 2:46 remaining in the second overtime. Thompson scored on a one-on-one breakaway, with Fllion and senior goalkeeper Brooke McCurdy recorded an assist on the play.
McCurdy posted four saves for the match as WSU outshot IPFW 17-10 and had a 10-1 advantage in corner kicks.
Wright State (1-0) hits the road again Sunday for a 1:00 contest at Ohio.
