SOCCER: Ocampo pulls hat trick in Cards’ OT win

Juliana Ocampo secured a hat trick in the 94th minute, and each of her goals were needed in Lamar’s 4-3 overtime victory over UTSA in Beaumont on Friday.

Lamar (4-3) led 3-1 in halftime after giving up a goal in the 14th minute. Ocampo scored in the 24th and 33rd, the latter off a combined assist from Amelia Fullmer and Nederland graduate Madison Ledet. Port Neches-Groves alumna Hailey Loupe made it 3-1 in the 42nd minute taking another pass from Ledet.

UTSA responded with goals in the 70th and 88th minutes. But a bad clearance by UTSA 3 minutes, 47 seconds into overtime allowed Ocampo to score the golden goal.

The Roadrunners (3-3) outshot the Cardinals 18-9, including 11-7 on goal. Freshman Sandra Nygard saved eight shots for Lamar, which will host Colorado College at noon Sunday.
