SANTEE, Calif. – Mackenzie Asnicar tied the game at 1-1 in the 73rd minute. With the game seemingly headed for overtime, Ottawa-Arizona dashed all hopes of that scoring a goal with just 1:48 remaining in the second half.
With the 2-1 loss, the Hawks dropped their first game of the season. The Spirit improved to 4-0.
The Spirit outshot the Hawks in the first half, 5-3. But SDC was the first one to make a crack at goal. Serra Collins' header went wide of the target in the fifth minute. Vienna Rousset attempted a shot a minute later but was saved by the Spirit keeper.
Both teams couldn't find the back of the net in the first 45 but Ottawa-Arizona scored early in the second. Kaitlyn Kelsi blasted one home after a ball in the 6-yard box was banging around bodies. After Asnicar's goal in the 74th minute, Jordania Ruiz's shot in the 79th minute was saved by the Spirit keeper. It was the last shot the Hawks had in the game.
In the 89th minute, Kelsi scored her second of the game that all but sealed it for the Spirit.
Ottawa outshot the Hawks 9-4.
SDC will have a day off before their next match. The Hawks will take on Midland on Saturday at Cuyamaca College starting at 3:30 p.m.
