Kansas soccer defeats Arkansas in overtime


— After going more than four seasons without coming from behind to win a match, Kansas University’s soccer team did it for the second time in two games, defeating Arkansas, 2-1, Thursday in the third minute of the first overtime period with a header from senior Ashley Williams.

The Jayhawks, who went to extra time for the fourth time in their last five matches, posted back-to-back wins in overtime matches for the first time in program history.

The Razorbacks’ Claire Kelley opened scoring with a header for her fourth goal of the season.

KU freshman Anna Courtney’s second goal of the year tied the game at 1, where it remained at halftime.

The win moved Kansas to 4-4-1 on the year.
