Late goal lifts Jacks over Coyotes

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.
