Women's college soccer has witnessed the arrival of an outstanding crop of freshman strikers. One of the most imposing forwards is 5-foot-11 Courtney Goodson
whose two goals powered No. 4 Texas to a 2-1 overtime win over Arizona on Sunday.
Goodson headed home the game-winner off a corner kick in the 105th minute after scoring on a header
off Niki Arlitt'
s cross early in the second half to erase the Wildcats' 1-0 advantage.
Goodson, a product of Southern California's Eagles program,
has four goals in four games.
"Goodson is very good at scoring goals," said Longhorn coach Chris Petrucelli
. "She got to it in the air, she has a
good shot. I thought she did a really nice job possessing the ball as well. Two goals for any player is a great night, but two goals for a freshman is as good as it gets." KHOSROSHANIN MILESTONE.
USC coach Ali Khosroshahin
, the 2007 Soccer America Coach of the Year, won his 100th collegiate
game on Sunday when the Women of Troy beat visiting Alabama, 7-1. Khosroshahin, who arrived from Cal State Fullerton in 2007, is now 100-44-8 overall.
