SDSU and USD Soccer Opens Seasons with Wins

BROOKINGS, S.D. – South Dakota State women’s soccer used a staunch defensive effort and late-game heroics from Karlee Manding to move past Utah State in its 2019 season opener Friday, 1-0. After 88 minutes of scoreless play, an Aggie handball in the box set Manding up for a penalty kick with the clock winding down, and the sophomore delivered. SDSU closed out the final two minutes of action and improved to 1-0 on the season.
