Kansas wins in shootout


— Kansas University freshman goalkeeper Kat Liebetrau’s save on Texas Tech midfielder Maggie Fete — the Red Raiders’ fifth shooter in the shootout — on Monday at the Blossom Soccer Complex advanced the Jayhawks to the quarterfinal round of the Big 12 soccer tournament.

The match, which officially goes down as a 1-1 tie, was a play-in match to determine the No. 8 seed in the conference tournament.

After the teams played 110 minutes of soccer tied 1-1, the match moved to a shootout. Kansas’ Emily Cressy, Monica Dolinsky, Whitney Berry, Kim Boyer and Shelby Williamson all connected on their chances from the penalty-kick line. Tech made its first four chances, before Liebetrau made a sprawling save to the far post on Fete’s shot.

The Jayhawks move to 12-7-2 overall, while Tech finishes the season at 8-8-4. KU advances to meet top seed Missouri at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Berry scored the Jayhawks’ goal in the first half.

Good luck to them. It is nice to see that other sports are faring well with the resurgence of the Football Program.

Sweet! Way to come through, 'Hawks. Now pound those tiggers into submission.
