ARCATA, Calif. – Tess Hobbs put a goal on the board for BYU-Hawaii women's soccer, but Humboldt State came away with the 2-1 victory in extra time.
"I have a lot of respect for Humboldt and the tournament they put on," BYU head coach Mark Davis said. "Their coaching staff was awesome. We played extremely organized today. There was nothing we could do on an amazing shot in the last second of the game. It was a disappointing loss, but the girls are playing well and are hitting their stride."
Playing in extra time for the second consecutive day, the Seasiders were less than a minute away from a tie when a looping shot from 30 yards out went in the top left of the goal to end the match.
After the Jacks had taken a 1-0 lead in the first half, Hobbs stole the ball in the box and quickly fired a shot past the keeper to tie the game.
The Seasiders were unable to get many shots off after the half, but strong defense and goalkeeping helped to take the game to overtime.
BYU-Hawaii will open up conference play at Holy Names Sept. 25 at 1:30 p.m. PDT.
