    Over the last couple of weeks someone has been circulating so-called BP oil claim forms in the Lake Charles area. While man, if not most medical claims associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill have been settled, someone is holding meetings around the Lake area trying to get people to sign up.

LAKE CHARLES – The McNeese soccer team dropped a heartbreaker in double overtime Sunday as Sam Houston State used a goal in the 103rd minute to defeat the Cowgirls, 1-0.

 

With the defeat, McNeese falls to 5-5-1 overall and 0-3 in SLC action this season, while the Bearkats improve to 4-.5-1 and 2-1 in conference. The Cowgirls were shutout for a school record fifth straight time on Sunday and have now gone winless in their last five matches with a 0-4-1 record.

 

The Cowgirls provided many scoring opportunities with six first half shots but were unable to capitalize while the McNeese defense held Sam Houston to just three shots.  Sophomore goalkeeper Lauren Sestak made one first half save, while the Sam Houston keeper Kylie Hambleton did not make a save in the first 45 minutes.

 

The second half belonged to the Bearkats who took 12 shots to the Cowgirls' four but neither was able to find the net sending both teams into overtime.

 

From the 95th minute on the Cowgirls were down one player due to a red card given to sophomore Cheyenne Ganley.  Freshman Kendall Vardell provided McNeese with its best opportunity to win the game when she attempted a 30-yard shot that flew high above the net.

 

Less than three minutes into the second half, the Bearkats scored the only goal of the match. Sam Houston's Mariah Titus took a shot from the right side of the net, which ricocheted off of Sestak's hand and went in for the win.

 

Senior Callie Allbright led the Cowgirls with four shots on the day while Vardell and Lasiter ended the day with two.  Freshman Savannah LaRicci had the offenses only shot on goal.

 

McNeese continues conference action on Friday, Oct. 4 at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi before returning home to face Houston Baptist on Sunday, Oct. 6.
