ETSU women's soccer falls to Radford in last minute tally, 1-0

Thursday, September 16, 2004

RADFORD, Va. (Sept. 16, 2004) - Senior Highlander Nikki Porter scored in the 83rd minute to lift Radford (4-3) to a 1-0 victory over East Tennessee State (3-3) Thursday evening at Patrick D. Cupp Memorial Stadium. After several scoring opportunities in the second half, junior Jonita Hooker found Porter with a through ball from the center of the midfield. She then beat Buc keeper Christine Parks (Annapolis, Md.) for the winning tally. The assist by Hooker was her second of the season and extended her season scoring streak to six games. Despite outshooting the Buccaneers 11-3 and controlling most of the play, Radford had a scare late in the match. In the 85th minute, ETSU seemed to score the tying goal after a free kick, but a Buccaneer player was called offside, nullifying the goal. Parks finished with four saves for ETSU, while Tara Oleartchick earned her first collegiate shut out for Radford, making one save. The Buccaneers return to action on Sunday, Sept. 26 when they open Southern Conference action on the road in Charleston, S.C. when they will face The Citadel at 1 p.m.
