LAWRENCE, KS (KWSN) — Kansas scored three goals in the final 15 minutes of regulation to down South Dakota State in their women's soccer exhibition match Friday.

The teams were deadlocked in a scoreless tie through the first half, but Kansas scored two unanswered goals in a four-minute span just after the 75th minute to take the lead. The Jayhawks tacked on their third g​oal with less than two minutes remaining in regulation play.

In the first half, Kansas opened the game by attacking the SDSU net. Nicole Inskeep held fast, making a save on a point-blank shot by Ashley Williams at 5:44. At 43:09, freshman Nicole Hatcher almost put SDSU on the board, but her shot hit the crossbar. Kansas outshot SDSU, 7-6, in the frame.

The Jackrabbits started the second half strong, posting seven shots in the first 30 minutes and holding the Jayhawks to just two. But, after a brief intermission at the 75th minute, Taylor Estrada found Ali Kimura running uncovered through the box to put Kansas on the board.

Eli Mayr made it a two-goal game at 78:33, taking a cross from Kimura and beating Elisa Stamatakis. After the coaches elected to play an additional 15 minutes, Williams tapped home a rebound to make it a 3-0 final.

SDSU and Kansas each recorded 16 shots. Kansas held a 5-0 lead in shots on goal. Inskeep and Stamatakis each made a save. Hatcher led SDSU with five shots.

The Jackrabbits return to action Friday, Aug. 22 at Fishback Park when they take on Creighton to open the regular season.
