Delgado’s 2nd OT Goal of Season Upends No. 15 Ravens

By Hutchinson CC Sports Information


HUTCHINSON, Kan. – Freshman Adriana Delgado‘s second overtime goal of the season on Saturday powered the Hutchinson Community College Women’s Soccer team to a second-straight victory over a nationally ranked opponent.

After a tremendous counter attack started by sophomore Hadlie Lowe, Delgado delivered the game-winning goal 1 minute, 47 seconds into overtime to lift the Blue Dragons to a 2-1 victory over No. 15 Coffeyville at the Salthawk Sports Complex. Hutchinson defeated No. 17 Cowley 2-1 on Wednesday in Arkansas City.

The Blue Dragons improved to 9-1 overall and 6-1 in the Jayhawk West. Coffeyville fell to 8-2-1 overall and 4-1-1 in the Jayhawk East. The Blue Dragons are off until next Saturday, October 1 when Hutchinson travels to No. 6 Butler.

One minute, 25 seconds into overtime, Coffeyville had a corner kick from the left side of Blue Dragon sophomore goalkeeper Madison Quarles. The kick bounced around in front of the net and was cleared by freshman defender Kendra Brungardt. She flipped a pass to Lowe, who beat a Coffeyville player to the ball.

After two dribbles, Lowe made a quick pass to Delgado, who immediately returned the ball to Lowe past midfield. Again Lowe beat a Coffeyville player to the ball and sprinted toward the goal. Drawing a second Raven defender to her, Lowe made a deft pass to a breaking Delgado, who was sprinting down the left side of the penalty box. Delgado scored the game winner from 5 yards out.

Delgado also scored an overtime game winner in Hutchinson’s 4-3 double-overtime victory at Northeastern Junior College on August 27. She is just the second Blue Dragon player in program history with two career overtime goals, joining Alicia Robinson, who had two overtime winners in 2010.

The Blue Dragons are now 2-1 against Coffeyville in overtime games and 9-6-9 all-time in overtime contests.

Lowe had her fifth multi-point game of the season with a goal and an assist.

Lowe gave the Dragons a 1-0 lead 4:43 into the game when a Julia De Souza pass left Lowe in front of a nearly wide-open net.

The Dragons took that 1-0 lead into halftime thanks to four big saves from Quarles in the opening half.

Coffeyville tied the game with a great individual effort by leading scorer Thayline Teixeria with 13:03 to play in the second half. She stole the ball near the top of the Hutchinson penalty box, worked were way into scoring position and scored into a wide-open net to tie the game.

The Blue Dragons out-shot Coffeyville 22-12.

Quarles (4-0) made a career-high six saves in the game.
