Senior Cyeeta Mott of the Eastern Washington University women's soccer team tied a school record in career goals and broke school records in points and game-winning goals, as the visiting Eagles beat San Jose State University Sunday (Sept. 30) 3-2.
Senior Abby Jensen scored for the Eagles in the 53rd minute on a penalty shot to tie the game 1-1. She then scored again in the 68th minute to knot the score 2-2. That was Jensen's third goal of the season and fifth overall for her career as an Eagle.
Mott tied the school record for career goals with 11 when she scored her game-winning goal in the 83rd minute with the assist coming from freshman Lauren Koelzer.
She tied Jennie Summers (2002-05) for that record and now holds the records for career points at 27 to break Summers' 26 and for game-winning goals with five. She shared that record with Beth Russell (2002-05) and Summers.
The Eagles tallied a total of 15 shots to the Spartans' 16. Eastern had only one shot in the first half to San Jose State's six. The Eagles then came back with 14 shots to the Spartans' 10 in the second half.
