Mitchell, S.D. - The Panthers opened up their season on the road Saturday night against a tough Dakota Wesleyan team. York controlled the game in all aspects except the final score, a 2-1 loss in overtime.
York struck first in the 40th minute as Breanna Bembenek (FR/New Lenox, IL) scored her first collegiate goal to give the Panthers a 1-0 lead at the break. However, that lead would only last until the 63rd minute as the Tigers evened things up with a goal by Gemini Wesley.
York dominated the second half playing on the Tigers half most of the time. York produced 10 shots in the second half and had six corner kicks to keep the pressure on. However, the Tigers' goal keeper Hannah Bowes stayed strong and kept the Panthers out of the net.
The tie forced overtime and the Panthers' offense settled down a little as they were not able to produce a shot in the period. Dakota Wesleyan had two opportunities and capitalized on the last one to send the Tigers on to victory in the 94th minute.
York falls to 0-1 on the season and heads to Seward on Tuesday to take on Concordia University.
