Maricela Padilla ’14 scored an overtime goal to lead women’s soccer to their first West Coast Conference win at St. Mary’s over the weekend. The game was tied at zero for the full 90 minutes, but Padilla took the match into her own hands. She rushed past the St. Mary’s defenders and goalie to score in the first four minutes into overtime on a side pass from another teammate. The power forward made two of the Tiger’s three shots on goal and finally found the back of the net—giving Pacific their second overall win of the season. Soccer returns home from their road trip and plays this Friday, Oct. 18 at the Sunken Field when they host University of San Francisco in another WCC battle.
