LAST TIME OUT FOR OREGON
Oregon State forward Chelsea Buckland’s goal in the 86th minute was the difference in a 3-2 win over Oregon last Friday night in a Civil War clash at Pape’ Field in Eugene.
OSU improved to 9-1-1 overall with the win, while the Ducks dropped to 4-6-2 from the result. A crowd of 1,280 - the fourth-most of any home match in UO soccer history - watched the game which was the Pac-10 Conference opener for both schools.
The match was evenly played by both sides, with OSU holding a slim advantage in shots (10-9) and corner kicks (5-4). The Beavers were whistled for 11 fouls to UO’s four. Only one of the match’s five scores came in the first half, with it played scoreless for the first 35 minutes.
The Beavers scored goals in the 36th, 75th and 86th minutes. Oregon senior forward Jen Stoltenberg scored a goal in the 46th minute, and fellow senior Mercedes Walters tallied a goal in the 53rd minute which gave the Ducks a 2-1 advantage.
Parlee had two saves and three goals allowed at goalkeeper, one of eight Ducks to play the full 90 minutes. Stoltenberg led the Ducks with four shots, three of which were on frame. Five other UO players recorded one shot in the match, with sophomore midfielder Scout Libke and Walters recording a shot on goal apiece.
