Burnaby, BC – For the second time in a week, the Simon Fraser University women's soccer team battled through a tough double overtime match to earn a 0-0 draw, this time at home against the Western Oregon Wolves.
"That was the first time we've had a full team performance," said Head Coach Shelley Howieson. "I think we've been giving effort but some of it has been wasted energy so tonight was very pleasing to see them put it together."
SFU goalkeeper Meg Wilson (London, On), in her second game with the Clan women's soccer team earned the first shutout of her collegiate career, stopping all seven shots directed at her.
Karm Jawhanda (Delta, BC) led the Clan with two shots on goal.
In the last fifteen minutes of the second half, Yva Rodriguez (Port Coquitlam, BC) almost gave the Clan the lead with a shot that beat the goalkeeper but rang off the crossbar.
"Everyone was fighting so hard in this game and you could really see it," said defender Kelsey Atherley (Port Moody, BC). "We got a great effort from everybody. We know we can play against these teams and the fight that everyone is showing is a sign of good things to come."
With the tie, the Clan's record moves to 0-2-2 in Great Northwest Athletic Conference play and 0-4-2 overall.
The women's soccer team will be back in action Thursday, October 3 at Terry Fox Field at 5:00 p.m. against the Central Washington University Wildcats.
