PORTLAND, OR- A late corner kick by San Diego's Brenna Mullen found the net, as USD played host Portland to a 2-2 draw in the final game of the regular season for both squads. Mullen's goal in the 89th minute completed a two-goal second half comeback for USD. Torero junior Marie Claude-Henry drew first blood for San Diego, scoring off a free kick to cut into Portland's early lead. Portland (16-3-1, 5-1-1 WCC) finishes in second place in the conference, while San Diego (9-7-4, 2-4-1 WCC) makes a case for its fifth consecutive College Cup bid.

An emotional match that began with the West Coast Conference honoring the late Clive Charles with the first-ever WCC Lifetime Achievement Award, looked to be a rout by Portland before the Toreros spoiled the Pilot celebration with two late strikes.

Portland junior defender Kristen Moore continued her stellar play with both Pilot goals in the second half. After the teams played to a 0-0 halftime score, Moore notched a 58th minute goal set up on an assist by Angie Woznuk. Moore streaked inside the USD penalty box as Woznuk tapped a pass to the center. Moore took one touch then blasted an nine yard shot to the right post for the score.

Just over three minutes later, Moore took a long ball from Kari Evans down the left sideline all the way to the endline before sending an extreme angled shot between San Diego goalie Libby Bassett and the near post. The shot bounced off the far post and hugged the goal line all the way back to the left side of the net, putting the Pilots up 2-0.

From that point on, Bassett stopped all nine shots on goal to keep the pesky Toreros alive. San Diego caught a break in the 73rd minute when a hand-ball was called just outside the Portland box. Marie Claude-Henry took the free kick and bent the left-footed shot over the Pilot wall and into the top left of the goal, cutting the lead in half.



San Diego was given one last chance in the 89th minute on a corner kick taken by Brenna Mullen. Mullen hooked the kick from the left corner to the far post over Pilot keeper Cori Alexander, who tipped the ball but couldn't keep it from finding the back of the net just inside the right post.

In the overtime periods, the Pilots again dominated getting chance after chance to score, but it never materialized. The 38 Pilot shot attempts was sixth highest total in the program's history and most since the 1992 season. San Diego tallied just six shots for the match, while both attempts on goal went for scores.

Bassett was a force between the pipes for the Toreros sending back 15 Pilot shot attempts and preserving the tie under constant pressure. Five Pilots attempted five or more shots, led by Wanda Rozwadowska's eight and Lindsey Huie's seven. Moore, Woznuk and Lisa Sari each had five.
