Thanks to a game-tying goal in the 57th minute by Rylan Childers, No. 22 Kansas battled through two overtimes with Iowa State for a 1-1 draw on Saturday afternoon at the Cyclone Sports Complex.
With the tie, Kansas moved to 6-3-3 on the year, while Iowa State is now 2-6-4.
Iowa State struck first in the 38th minute, ending KU’s streak of holding their opponents scoreless for 247 consecutive minutes. Kansas returned the favor and scored in the 57th minute with a cross from Moira Kelley to Childers. It marked the fourth goal of the season for Childers.
“There is no doubt that we weren’t as sharp as we needed to be coming into this game,” head coach Mark Francis said in a team release. “Credit to the team because the tie is better than a loss. I’m proud of how they battled.”
Kansas will host Notre Dame at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, March 28.
