Drake plays at South Dakota State Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. as it continues its season-long six match road trip. Story Links “This was a great test for us going up against a much improved Big 12 team,” said head coach Lindsey Horner. “I thought we had a sharp start tonight defensively and gained confidence and composure on the ball. As a staff, we were really pleased to protect our goalkeeper in the run of play. This is one of those games that is only unlocked from a restart goal. We had them on their heels with a flurry of corners to end the first half, but credit to K State’s keeper and defenders for weathering our chances. It’s unfortunate to not come home with something more than experience from this game as the goal we conceded was somewhat unlucky. We are excited to quickly get back on the field together against what will be a tough SDSU. Katie Cramer scored off a free kick in the 54th minute (54:35) for Kansas State (3-0) in the second all-time meeting with Drake (1-2). Cramer’s second goal of the season came after a foul by the Bulldogs as she sent a low ball after the restart that got past Kelsie Stone (Hoffman Estates, Ill.). PDF Box Score last_img read more
