IUSB Soccer claims win over Calumet in overtime

EAST CHICAGO, Ind. – Rebekkaha Guess’ brace, including the game winner in the 92nd minute, gave IU South Bend soccer the first victory in program history on Saturday, as the Titans defeated Calumet 2-1.

The Titans (1-11, 1-8 CCAC) took an early lead, when Guess struck out on a breakaway in the 14th minute. The lead wouldn’t last however, with the Crimson Wave (1-12, 1-9 CCAC) responding with the equalizer in the 30th minute. 

The home side controlled possession through the majority of the match, out-shooting the Titans 24-10 on the night. IU South Bend were also forced to play a man down after a red card in the 72nd minute, but goalkeeper Kaitlyn Paul made 12 saves to keep her team in the match and force extra time.

In just 77 seconds into the first overtime session, Guess came onto goal from the right wing, scoring her second goal of the night and third of the season.

The goal gives the Titans their first win in the three-year history of the program, and just the second ever multi-goal match.

The Titans return home for their next match, when they host Judson on Wednesday, October 20. Kickoff from Newton Park in Lakeville, Ind. is set for 5:00 p.m.
