Oregon soccer tied with No. 18 Arizona State 1-1 last night in Tempe, Arizona.
Redshirt junior defender Kelsey Foo got the Ducks on the board first as she scored on a penalty kick in the 71st minute.
An Arizona State player was called for a handball in the box, giving Foo the opportunity to take her first penalty shot this season. Foo placed the ball in the lower left corner of the goal as it whipped past Sun Devil keeper Chandler Morris.
Foo scored her first goal of the season and Oregon now has ten different players who have scored so far on the year.
Oregon stuck with the ranked Sun Devils for the duration of the game. The Ducks’s defense was strong in the first half, limiting Arizona State to just three shots and zero corners heading into half time.
Oregon finished the match with 17 shots compared to Arizona State’s 13.
Oregon’s 17 shots is its third-highest total on the year and its most since the Sep. 7 match against Cal State Fullerton.
However, the Sun Devils were able to get themselves back in the game as Arizona State’s second-leading scorer Aly Moon was able to covert of a header from Brianna Gonzalez to tie up the game 1-1 in the 87th minute.
Both teams could not score in the two overtimes played, although Arizona State came close towards the end of the second overtime as a chip shot over Oregon keeper Abby Steele went slightly wide of the goal.
The Ducks stand now at 5-3-2 and 1-0-1 in Pac-12 conference play.
Steele finished with two saves and Morris had four.
Oregon will travel to its next Arizona stop to face the Wildcats tomorrow at noon. Arizona beat Oregon State on Friday 2-0.
