TURLOCK -- The California State University, Stanislaus women's soccer team lost its first match of the season on Friday, falling 3-2 in double-overtime to San Bernardino State. The worst part was that the Warrior women scored the final goal on themselves.
With 31 seconds left in the second OT, a CSUS defender tried to head the ball away from the goal, but it went the wrong way and sailed over goalkeeper Millie Brown's head into the net.
Freshman Karenee Demery scored both CSUS goals, giving her a freshman-record eight for the season. On the first, she took a pass from Allison Case then launched a shot from the side that beat a defender. But CSUSB came back and scored twice, the second on a header that bounced off the crossbar into the goal.
Demery's second goal came off a scramble in front of the CSUSB net.
CSUS is 4-1 and 2-1 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association; CSUSB 5-0.
