Disputed last-second whistle key in 2-1 loss to Washington State
The Arizona soccer team forged a split in its second weekend of Pacific 10 Conference play, losing 2-1 in double overtime yesterday to Washington State, while defeating Washington 1-0 Friday night.
The Cougars (8-6-1, 1-3 Pac-10) came back from a 4-2 loss to ASU on Friday to hand the Wildcats (8-4-2, 3-1) their first conference loss.
Arizona led 1-0 in Pullman, Wash., through the 89:59 mark, when a referee whistled senior forward Kelly Nelson for bringing down WSU's Alix Rustrum.
Cougars midfielder Carmen Anderson slipped the ensuing penalty kick past Wildcats goalkeeper McCall Smith, sending the match to overtime.
Anderson ended the game almost 40 minutes later in the second overtime period, connecting on a free kick for her sixth goal of the season.
Arizona head coach Dan Tobias received a red card and was ejected from the game after arguing the call at the end of regulation. It was the second time this season Tobias has been ejected from a match, the first coming at a home game Sept. 16 against Utah.
Tobias did not return calls seeking comment last night.
