Kansas soccer takes 2OT win


— Kansas University freshman Grace Hagan netted the golden goal and added an assist to help the Jayhawks rally for a 2-1, double-overtime soccer victory over Colorado College on Sunday at Stewart Field.

Senior Liana Salazar sparked the KU comeback with her third goal of the season in the 55th minute before Hagan sent in the game-winner in the 102nd minute.

The win moved KU to 3-4-1 and snapped a three-match losing skid. Colorado College fell to 1-5-1.

“I thought we definitely deserved to win it today,” KU coach Mark Francis said. “We scored two really good goals; great build-ups, great final passes and great finishes. We’re going to look back at this game later in the season and say this was a pivotal game. I really feel like we’re going to take off from this.”

Kansas will travel Thursday to Arkansas. Match time is 6:30 p.m.
