For 103 minutes, the women’s soccer team battled against the 14th-ranked Rutgers Scarlet Knights, including almost two rounds of 10 minute overtime.

With a little more than seven minutes left in the second overtime, Rutgers attempted a corner kick that was sent out of the box. However, the Scarlet Knights were awarded a penalty kick on a foul that occured in the box, sending both athletes and fans into a state of shock. The penalty was knocked in by second team All-American Amirah Al to give the Scarlet Knights the victory.

Overtime lasted 10 minutes.

The blank sheet was then broken by second team All-American Amirah Ali who lead the way with five shots on net and the game-winning goal for the Scarlet Knights.

The Blue Hens were outshot 6-2 in the first half and 19-8 for the entire game. Delaware was dominated offensively and was on their half of the field most of the game. The Blue Hens were also issued a total of four cards, one being a red card issued after the end of the match. The Blue Hens also committed a total of 12 fouls.

The stand out for Delaware was sophomore goalkeeper Kamyrn Stablein, saving eight shots and making key stops in both the second half and overtime.

With the loss, the Hens drop back to back games and fall to 4-4 on the year. They will look to bounce back next Sunday at 1:00 p.m. as they host a struggling Seton Hall.
