CALDWELL, Idaho. - The Oregon Tech women's soccer season came to a close, as College of Idaho upended the Owls 4-0 today in the first round of the Cascade Collegiate Conference playoffs. Tech ends the year with a school record 13 wins to go along with their fourth-straight postseason appearance. College of Idaho moves on to the CCC title game against Concordia University next Saturday.
OIT (13-6) had an early chance to take the lead, as Katie O'Brien ripped a one-timed shot from the right side of the box in the tenth minute, but Hardegree-Ullman made a diving save to her left, punching the ball clear.
The Yotes would fuel off of it, scoring a pair of goals 82-seconds apart, to take control of the match. In the 19th minute, Colleen Smith headed home a corner from Lauren Winterholler - going unmarked at the far post and cracking the ball untouched in the net. Moments later, Jessica Ayala corraled a pass from Jamie Reichel after a nice run from Justine Hawkins, and rocketed a ball through the hands of Tech keeper Megan Ross to make it 2-0.
Mouritsen took control in the second half, flicking home a nice cross from Ayala in the 49th minute, then blasting home a one-timed shot from the top of the 18 off a Taylor Culver feed in the 63rd minute to cap the scoring.
The Yotes held a 20-10 edge in shots and a 5-4 edge in corner kicks.
