SPOKANE, Wash. -The University of San Diego women's soccer team (10-7-0, 3-3-0) rallied to knock of the Gonzaga Bulldogs (5-9-1, 1-4-0) 3-1 on the road Saturday afternoon. The Toreros trailed 1-0 at half, but rallied to score three goals in the second half to earn their third WCC win.
The Bulldogs wasted no time, scoring in the 4th minute when Kasey Rubosky finished a Karly Baggerly cross from six yards out. The Bulldogs would hold a 1-0 lead for the remainder of the first half.
The Toreros tied the match at 1-1 in the 56th minute after Meggie Gulczynski scored a close range goal on a Lauren Dotson assist. The equalizer was the first goal of the season for Gulczynski.
Gulczynski struck again to give the Toreros the lead less than a minute later. She knocked in a Mariah Butera shot that had bounced off the goalpost to put the Toreros up 2-1.
The Toreros third goal also came off a rebounded shot attempt. Meghan O'Rourke scored the go ahead goal after Zags' keeper Christie Tombari deflected Emily Dillon's shot right to her feet. This was the third time the Toreros have scored at least three goals in a match and their first time since their 3-1 win over Cal Sate Northridge on September 1.
The Toreros had 12 shot attempts, putting seven on target. While, the Bulldogs had 14 shot attempts with six of them on goal.
Sophomore goalkeeper Michelle Craft (10-7-0), who collected five saves, earned the win. Bulldogs' goalkeeper Christie Tombari had four saves, but took the loss.
The Toreros return to action next Friday November 1 when they travel to take on No. 24 BYU at 7:00 p.m.
