The Montana and Weber State soccer teams played to a 1-1 draw on Sunday afternoon, remaining tied after 90 minutes of regulation and two overtime periods.

Montana is 14-12-3 all-time against Weber State, including 3-1-1 over the past four seasons, but earned a result in Ogden for the first time since 2006.

"We came away with points, and that's a good thing," head coach Mark Plakorus said. "I really liked our response. After the last two games and not playing up to our standard, I thought we did a really good job from the start of the game and did what we wanted to do."

In many ways, Montana out-played Weber State, controlling the tempo and out-shooting the Wildcats 18-8. The Grizzlies also had more shots on goal (6-4), more corner kicks (6-1) and had zero yellow cards compared to WSU's three.

Weber State (2-9-1, 1-2-1 BSC) didn't take its first shot until the 39th minute, but took four shots within a 131-second period, including a header goal to take a 1-0 advantage. The impressive goal for the home team came off of a corner kick. Without ever touching the ground, three different Wildcats headed the ball, with the final one finding the back of the net.

The goal was Lauren Gibson's first of the season and was assisted by Sadie Newsome and Madison Garlock.

The Grizzlies (6-5-2, 1-1-1 BSC) responded early in the second period, though, scoring in the 52nd minute.

On the throw in, Ashlee Pederson passed it in to Allie Lucas, who controlled it and passed it to Dani Morris, who was coming around her from left to right. From just outside the elbow of the box, Morris fired a 25-yard cross-angle shot past a diving goaltender.
