BEAUMONT, Texas -
Lorna Maudslay's second goal of the season lifted the Lamar University women's soccer team into a 1-1 tie with visiting Texas State in a Southland Conference game in front of a Lamar Soccer Complex record 562 fans Friday night.
Maudslay scored an unassisted goal just 1:34 after Lauren Lewis gave Texas State a 1-0 lead with an unassisted goal at the 11:09 mark of the second half.
Lamar played with a extra-player advantage throughout the second half and the two overtime sessions after Texas State's Serena Hines received a red card for unsportsmanlike conduct at the end of the first half, but Lamar had trouble capitalizing on the advantage.
"Tonight, we played frustrated," Lamar coach Dewi Hardman said. "They had a player come out. We had to take advantage of that, but we didn't."
Texas State (8-5-1 overall, 2-2-1 SLC) goalkeeper Natalie Gardini made 10 saves for the Bobcats, the defending regular-season champions, while Lamar's Jennifer Gibbs turned aside five shots.
Lamar (4-8-2 overall, 2-2-1 SLC) will host UTSA at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Lamar Soccer Complex. UTSA (3-0-1 SLC) battled to a 1-1 tie at McNeese State on Friday night.
"We're looking forward to Sunday," Hardman said. "We got something from this weekend, but we want more. UTSA is a very good team, too. We had a good crowd tonight. Hopefully, we'll have some support to help us get a win Sunday."
