Tweneboah Leads Miami Past UCF
Oct. 18, 2005
ORLANDO, Fla. – Redshirt sophomore forward Rebecca Tweneboah netted a pair of goals, including the 97th minute game-winner in overtime, to lead the University of Miami women’s soccer team past in-state foe UCF, 2-1, Tuesday night at the UCF Soccer Field.
Tweneboah scored the game-clincher for the Hurricanes (8-9-1) in the 97th minute, taking a ball nearly the length of the field on a breakaway to beat UCF (7-9-0) keeper Julie Snaman to give UM their third win in the last four games.
The Golden Knights outshot the Hurricanes by a total of 15-to-10 while UM’s only shot attempt in the overtime period came on Tweneboah’s goal.
UCF struck first on a Roberta Pelarigo goal off of an assist by teammate Courtney Bains in the 17th minute of play.
Miami answered with the equalizer with just over two minutes remaining in the first half when Tweneboah scored off of an assist by freshman forward Val Blanco in the 43rd minute to bring the score to one-all.
The in-state rivals combined for 11 shots in the second half, but both teams were held scoreless at the end of regulation.
Heading into overtime, neither team would get off a shot until Tweneboah set up the one versus one with Snaman on what would lead to the game-winning goal in the 97th minute.
The Hurricanes return to action Sunday, hosting ACC rival Wake Forest at 1 p.m. in the 2005 home finale.
