EAGAN, Minn. — Mayu Inokawa's first career goal couldn't have come at a better time.
With the score knotted, the defender buried a penalty kick in the 65th minute to lift the Minnesota Aurora FC to a 2-1 victory over the Indy Eleven Wednesday at TCO Performance Center.
It's the first playoff win for the Aurora, who are in their inaugural season with the USL W League. The Aurora continue their postseason run Sunday against McLean Soccer.
After an unbeaten regular season, Minnesota found itself facing a 1-0 halftime deficit after Ella Rogers scored in the 24th minute for the Eleven. Morgan Turner delivered the equalizer when she tucked a shot just under the left crossbar in the 50th minute.
