Alaska’s Sarah Tarver provided a glimmer of hope for Northern Arizona University in a 3-1 loss to Oklahoma.

The sophomore midfielder delivered her first goal of the season, a 25-foot firecracker in the eighth minute to give NAU a 1-0 lead.

Carver, of Juneau-Douglas fame, received a throw-in pass in the middle of the field and went to work, blasting the ball over the goalkeeper’s head and into the upper middle half of the net.

It was Carver’s third career goal.
