Women's soccer battles Campbell to a scoreless tie in double overtime

Saturday, October 11, 2008

(October 11, 2008) - After 110:00 minutes of play, the ETSU women's soccer team battled Atlantic Sun Conference rival Campbell to a scoreless tie, Saturday at Summers-Taylor Stadium.  

 

"Campbell did a great job playing hard throughout the match," said head coach Heather Henson. "Our team knew coming into today's contest that we were going to have a fight till the end. Overall we played one of the best matches all year. As a back unit we stayed disciplined and did a great job not stepping forward and getting out of position. Campbell has some great players and our defense did an excellent job limiting scoring opportunities against them."

 

With the tie both ETSU (5-6-1, 3-2-1 A-Sun) and Campbell (3-6-3, 2-3-1) pick up one conference point in A-Sun play. The Bucs now sit in a two-way tie with Mercer for the conference lead with 10 points.

 

After both teams battled for possession in the first half, ETSU would come out strong in the second period, out shooting the Camels 11-5. The Bucs best scoring opportunity came as Jordan Monty (Mesquite, Texas) received an over the top pass for a one-on-one breakaway chance, however the junior forward's shot sailed just high of Campbell goalkeeper Boomie Luck with three minutes remaining in regulation.

 

"As the game continued on we did a good job finding feet, but we just couldn't find the back of the net," said Henson. "Give credit to their goalkeeper, she made some key saves, but we just seemed to be a little unlucky offensively."

 

Overall ETSU outshot Campbell 15-10, while the Camels held a slight 6-4 advantage in corner kicks.

 

The Bucs return to action next weekend as they travel to face defending league champion Kennesaw State, for a 7:00 p.m., kickoff at the KSU Soccer Complex.
