Late PK Gives #12 Chicago the Victory Against #23 Tartans

(CHICAGO, Ill.) - The 23rd-ranked Carnegie Mellon University women's soccer team faced its second ranked opponent in as many games when it visited 12th-ranked University of Chicago on Sunday, November 3. Two first-half goals by the Tartans didn't hold up as the Maroons rallied for a 3-2 win. The Tartans are now 10-5-1 overall and 3-3 in the University Athletic Association (UAA) while the Maroons sit at 12-2-2 and 4-1-1.

Sophomore Julianne Tippett (Torrance, Calif. / South) gave the Tartans a 1-0 lead in the third minute of play when she headed in a corner kick by senior Tara Durstewitz (Old Bridge, N.J. / Old Bridge). Three minutes later, the Maroons equalized when Hanna Watkins redirected a cross in front of the goal.

The early scoring didn't stop there as the Tartans once again took the lead. This time it was junior Taylor Cammarata (Cary, N.C. / Green Hope) with the score in the ninth minute. Her free kick from the right wing outside the 18-yard box was good for her fourth goal of the season.

The next tally didn't come until the 33rd minute when Watkins struck again.

It was late in the second half when the Maroons took the lead on a penalty kick by Maddie DeVoe with less than eight minutes to play.

The Tartans had two corner kicks after the go-ahead goal by the Maroons but Cammarata's attempt off the second service was high in the last minute.

Carnegie Mellon will next face Case Western Reserve University (13-4, 2-4) in the regular-season finale for both teams on Saturday, November 9 at 1:00 p.m. in Cleveland, Ohio.
