After 89 minutes of scoreless soccer SDSU's Diana Potterveld found the back of the net with 28 seconds remaining in regulation to give South Dakota State the lead in a tight match against in-state rival, the University of South Dakota, at Fishback Soccer Park in Brookings.
Potterveld's goal came off a corner kick that the Coyotes were unable to clear. The Jacks' forward was able to get a handle on the loose ball and score the game winner, her fifth goal of the season.
USD's (2-12-3, 1-5-1 Summit League) Teagan Eberle (Schaumburg, IL), Jenny Teslow (Sioux Falls), Erin Bello (Fort Collins, CO) and Danielle Anderson (Elkhorn, NE) all threatened goal with on-target shots but SDSU (5-9-2, 3-3-1 Summit League) goalkeeper Tina Ehrett was in position to stop all four attempts and maintain a clean sheet.
The Coyotes will return to the USD Soccer Complex for their final game of the season against Kansas City. Game time is 1 p.m. Saturday.
