The UTEP Miners (5-4-1) lost in an overtime thriller 2-1 to the Marshall Thundering Herd (3-4-2), Thursday night, at University Field. 

After a scoreless first half, the Miners struck first early in the second half. When sophomore Vic Bohdan scored the first goal of the night with 62:31 left in regulation after junior Lauren Crenshaw stoled the ball away from a Marshall attacker. Crenshaw led the charge down the pitch till she saw Bohdan open in the right corner. 

The Miners took their foot off the gas pedal when Marshall answered back with a goal of their own in the 77th minute. 

Both teams remained tied at one till the second period of overtime. That’s when the Thundering Herd’s shot on goal was initially blocked by Palacios but Marshall capitalized on the second chance opportunity and scored the golden goal giving them their first win in Conference USA.


“I’m disappointed in all of us,” said head coach Kevin Cross. It’s on both ends, we have to finish our chances. Defensively we have to keep them outside and follow shots in to protect Alyssa.

The Miners led the Herd in corner kicks, 7-3, but were never able to capitalize on the opportunity. Palacios finished the game with a total of eight saves. Bohdan scored her third goal of the season. 

We had some good chances on corner but at the end of the day we got to put them in,” said junior Lauren Crenshaw. 
Next up for the Miners will be the New Mexico State Aggies in the FirstLight Federal Credit Union Battle of I-10 at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 23.
