Meredith Arpey (‘18) scored a game winning goal in the one hundred and third minute of double overtime, in a match versus St. Olaf College on Sept, 6. This was Arpey’s first goal of the season and was scored during a corner kick.

What position do you play and what’s your role on the team?

Arpey: I play forward, and I am one of the senior leaders for our team.

Describe to me the goal you scored in the one hundred and third minute to win the game.

Maggie Anderson got the ball from Julia Trandahl from about the half, and she took space and took the ball to the end line and was able to draw a corner. I went to take the corner and the field was set, so I ran up field as I approached the ball. This allowed me to get my foot under the ball, and I bent the corner in right between the goalkeeper’s hands.

What are your goals for the season?

Individually, I want to make an impact in every game, whether that be on the field or encouraging my team from the sideline. Collectively, I want this team to get to play together for as long as we possibly can, and have a little fun along the way, of course.

What sports star do you look up to most and why?

Lionel Messi because he is an incredible player, but he also seems pretty humble.

What’s your favorite sports brand and why?

Ten thousand percent Nike. It always makes me look fairly athletic and somewhat put-together while I actually rolled out of bed and put on the most comfortable thing I could find.
