Playing in their first OVC road match of the season, Murray State women's soccer kept the momentum rolling against Morehead State, after Izzy Heckman's 90th-minute goal propelled the Racers to a 2-1 victory over the Eagles in Morehead, Kentucky.

Senior Miyah Watford would continue her goal-scoring rampage when she converted a penalty kick in the 27th minute for Murray State's first goal of the day.

With time running out, Murray State would put together a final attacking run courtesy of defender Izzy Heckman. Dribbling from left to right, the junior from Powder Springs, Georgia became the hero when her strike in the 90th minute found the back of the net as her first career goal secured a 2-1 Racer victory.

"I think tonight was just as good as the last three…sometimes chance go in, and today they didn't. I think Morehead did a fantastic job on the defensive end. They got stuck in and made it hard for us. We knew they weren't going away, but I think the thing that I'm most proud about is, giving up a goal with three minutes left, we just turned around and put it back on them," said MSU head coach Matt Lodge.

Murray State posted a season-high 17 shots on goal while surrendering just two.
