The TCU womens soccer team opened Mountain West Tourney play with an overtime win over San Diego State thanks to a Jackie Torda goal in the 98th minute of play.  The goal came off an assist from Katie Runyon and gave TCU a 2-1 victory on Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas.

The Lady Frogs had taken the lead in the 31st minute, as Jordan Calhoun got on the end of a Lizzy Karoly cross. The goal for Calhoun, who was named the MWC Freshman of the Year on Tuesday, marked her 15th goal of the season and moved her into first place alltime in TCU history for goals scored in a season.

Following the halftime break, San Diego State tied the match when Cat Walker got behind the Horned Frog defense and scored from the left side of the box.  TCU responded as Sophomore Jackie Torda fired right back as she fired on two consecutive shot's, but watched as the ball sailed high of the goal on each.   It appeared as if Michelle Nguyen put the Purple and White back up in the match midway through the second half off a scramble in the box, but her shot was blocked by the Aztec defense to keep the score tied.

The Horned Frogs connected on two shots during the first overtime before Torda gave TCU its first win in post-season play in program history under head coach Dan Abdalla in the 98th minute of the match. On the play, Taylor sent a ball deep into the SDSU box, but it deflected off an Aztec defender before Runyon was able to send the ball to Torda, who laid in it past Yount to secure the victory.

TCU controlled most of the match and outshot San Diego State, 17-8, including 3-0 during the overtime session. On offense, Torda led the Horned Frogs with four shots and one goal, while Wilgenburg posted three shots on the day.   On defense, Walters recorded two saves, while Yount stopped five shots at Peter Johann Memorial Field.

TCU, who moved to 14-3-2 overall on the season, will play Utah tomorrow next. The Frogs earlier this year upended the Utes, 2-0, in Fort Worth. The semifinal match  will be televised live on The Mtn.
