After 110 minutes of fervent play, that included two ten minute over-time periods, seventh ranked Westmont Women’s Soccer (7-0-1) tied the Azusa Pacific Cougars (2-2-1). The final score was 0-0.

In the first half, the Cougars outshot the warriors 3-0; however, in the second half the shot count was more even-keeled as Westmont had five to Azusa Pacific’s six shots.

In the first overtime period, the Cougar’s had three shots, including one shot on goal and in the second overtime period both the Warriors and the Cougars each had a significant opportunity to clinch the victory.

For the Cougars, Lindsey Ryals fired off a shot in the 104th minute, but was denied by Westmont goal keeper, Amber Rojas. Rojas made five key saves throughout the game – two of which were in overtime.

For the Warriors, Kira Nemeth nailed off a shot in the last minute of the second overtime period, but was thwarted by Cougar goal keeper Zoey Bauman. Bauman had two saves on the night.

Next Wednesday September 21, the Warriors will play in their first Golden State Athletic Conference game of the season against Hope International in Fullerton at 12:00 p.m.
