The Fairfield University women's soccer team played its third consecutive double-overtime game Friday at the University of Maine, coming away with its second 0-0 draw of the year. The Stags are now 3-2-2 on the year, while the Black Bears are now 3-3-1.
Veronica Saez earned her second career clean sheet, as she played the entire 110 minutes in goal for the Stags. She stopped a career-best nine shots on the afternoon, with the last stop coming four minutes into the second overtime period.
Fairfield was outshot 17-11 on the afternoon, with a 3-2 disadvantage in extra time. Lauren Reilly had the lone shot of the first overtime period for either team, but had it stopped by Lauren Swant. The Maine goalkeeper played the entire 110 in net as well, coming away with three saves, two in overtime.
Maine had nine corner kick chances in the game, with three in the second overtime period alone, but the Fairfield defense did not crack. The Stags have now shutout four opponents this season, and have allowed just four goals in 681 minutes of action and just one over the last three games (321 minutes).
The Stags continue their season long five-game road trip at Fordham on Friday, September 21. That game is set for 7 p.m. in the Bronx, N.Y.
