Women's Soccer Falls to Montana in Double Overtime
MOSCOW, Idaho - In its first game away from home this season, the Boise State women's soccer team (1-4-0) fell 2-1 in double overtime against Montana, Friday. The match was the first of the Governor's Cup hosted by Idaho.

The game started with some stagnant play before Boise State senior Kati Lucas put a shot into the top left corner of the net for a 1-0 lead. The goal was Lucas' second of the year and gave the Broncos their first lead in a first half this season. Freshman Jenna Griggs set Lucas up with the assist and notched her first point of her Bronco career.

Though the Broncos had a halftime-lead, they were outmatched on the stat sheet. The Grizzlies fired 10 shots, four of which were on goal compared to Boise State's eight shots and one shot on goal.

Montana responded in the second half with an equalizer from the foot of Erin Craig in the 64th minute off an assist from India Watne.

Both teams were scoreless for the remainder of regulation and the first overtime. Montana's Craig ended the drought with the game-winning goal in the 107th minute.  

Megan Blanchard started the first half and grabbed four saves while Liz Ruiz took over in the second half and kept six Montana shots out of the net including break away opportunity early in the first overtime.

The Broncos converted one of their five shots on goal; the Grizzlies netted two of their 13 attempts on frame.

Boise State will return to the pitch Sunday when it faces Idaho State at 11 a.m. PT. The Broncos are 5-7-1 all-time against the Bengals but are 1-1 during neutral-site games.
