East Lansing, Mich. -- - An overtime score by Emily Jaffe off a corner play was the golden goal in MSU's 2-1 overtime loss to Michigan on Wednesday evening in Ann Arbor. Keeper Courtney Clem had a strong outing with six saves, but the Spartans suffered their second straight loss and fell to 8-5-2, 2-4-1 in Big Ten play.
The game-winner came in the final minute of the first overtime period . Shelina Zadorsky took the corner and found Jaffe, and she headed home the game-winner, her first tally of the season.
Three minutes later, the host Wolverines had the equalizer. Shelby Chambers-Garcia scored her fourth of the season off a corner play, which bent into the net and off of Clem for the score.
MSU was outshot 21-15, but had seven corners to Michigan's five. Michigan keeper Hayley Kopmeyer made three saves for the Wolverines, who improved to 12-2-1, 6-0-1 in the Big Ten.
