Late Goals Lead Oakland Past Women's Soccer, 3-0
Youngstown, Ohio -- Oakland scored three goals with under 15 minutes left in the match to defeat the Youngstown State women's soccer team, 3-0, in the Horizon League opener for both teams on Friday night at Farmers National Bank Field.

The loss drops the Penguins to 2-5-1 overall and 0-1-0 in the Horizon League while Oakland improves to 4-4-1 overall and 1-0-0 in the league.

After more than 75 minutes of a scoreless stalemate, Oakland's Sydnye Gagner scored twice within 42 seconds to give the Golden Grizzlies a 2-0 lead.

On the first goal Cecilie Dokka centered a long pass from the right side and found Gagner open on the left side of the goal for an open shot at the 76:35 mark.

The Penguins nearly tied the match seconds later when Alison Green broke free and slid a shot past Oakland goalkeeper Alison Holland. Right before the ball crossed the goalline an Oakland defender cleared it away.

On the next trip down into YSU territory, Gagner scored again on a nearly identical pass from Dokka at the 77:17 mark.

Lauren Bos closed out the scoring with a goal at the 88:50 mark.

Oakland's Vlad Gurovski was credited with an assist on all three goals.

Marissa Martin and Green led the Penguins with three shots each.

The Penguins visit Cincinnati, Sunday, at 1 p.m.
