FAYETTE, Mo.-- The Jimmie women's soccer match at Central Methodist (Mo.) had a couple of season firsts.
Jamestown had not trailed at any point during the first four matches of 2017. That changed just five minutes, 41 seconds after kickoff.
On the other side of the pitch, Central Methodist had not conceded a goal in three prior games, outscoring their opponents 8-0.
Anika Kallash gave Central Methodist an early 1-0 lead, but Kristin Breaux (FR/Chino, Calif.) scored the equalizer exactly three minutes later, and the Jimmies and Eagles played to a 1-1 double overtime draw.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
Kallash quickly established herself as an offensive threat early on, testing UJ keeper Lauren Sayler (JR/Bismarck, ND) 2:28 into the contest. Sayler came up with the save, but Kallash had another shot sail wide just under two minutes later.
The third time was a charm, as Kallash's fourth goal of 2017 staked the home team with a 1-0 advantage.
On the Jimmies' next possession, Shelby Webb (JR/Alta Loma, Calif.)'s shot was wide of the goal, but Jamestown kept the pressure on CMU, and Breaux kicked in her second of the season at 8:41. Juliet Ramirez (JR/Fairfield, Calif.) got credit for the assist and ran her point-scoring streak to three games.
Each team had scoring attempts either go wide of the goal or saved by the keeper, and it was in the 42nd minute when CMU had their best chance to take the lead. Judith Sainz unleashed a booming kick from 20 yards out, only to have it ricochet off the crossbar out of harm's way.
Sainz hit the woodwork one minute, six seconds into the second half, and the Jimmies were fortunate to be tied at one instead of down 3-1.
Yanet Miranda (SR/Tustin, Calif.) missed wide at 50:53, and Dianne Miranda (SR/Tustin, Calif.) had her attempt saved at 51:49, and it would be over 22 minutes before either team would register another shot.
Connie Contreras (SR/Gilroy, Calif.) had the only UJ shot in the first overtime, but CMU keeper Ronja Andersson was up for the challenge, turning away the shot with 1:01 left in the period.
CMU had two chances in the second overtime, but both went wide of the goal.
Shots were 7-5 in favor of CMU in the first half, and 3-2 in favor of UJ in the second. CMU outshot the Jimmies 4-1 in the two overtime periods.
Jamestown (4-0-1) remains unbeaten through the season's first five games, and the Eagles (3-0-1) saw their unbeaten streak stretch to four.
HAT TRICK (3 TAKEAWAYS FROM MONDAY'S MATCH):
1. UJ equaled last season's high of five straight undefeated matches. The Jimmies went 4-0-1 from October 22-November 4.
2. Jamestown was outshot for the first time this season (13-9), but still hold a 69-30 shot advantage overall.
3. The Jimmies have now scored in 10 straight matches dating back to last season. Their last scoreless match was also their last overtime match, a 0-0 double overtime draw against Waldorf (Iowa) on October 22.
UJ wraps up its six-game road trip next weekend with a pair of matches against ranked opponents. Saturday the Jimmies play No. 4 Benedictine (Kan.) College in a 5:00 p.m. kickoff, then take on #17 Hastings (Neb.) Sunday at 3:00 p.m. Both games will be played in Hastings, Neb.
