NASHVILLE – Despite dominating statistically throughout the 110 minutes of play, the Lipscomb women’s soccer team (2-0-1) drew Ohio 0-0 after two overtime periods at the Music City Invite at Vanderbilt on Friday night.
The Lady Bisons outshot Ohio 19-8, with a 6-3 shots-on-goal advantage, dominated possession, and attacked consistently, but could not find the back of the net.
Senior Brooker Brenner and sophomore took four shots to lead the team. Dunn, junior Maycie McKay, sophomores Riley Henry and Kaitlin Echols, and freshmen Kammy McGee and Emily Patti landed on-target shots for the Lady Bisons.
Senior Kate Mason deflected three shots in the draw, including a big pair of saves to preserve her first shutout of the season late in the action.
Lipscomb women's soccer head coach Kevin O'Brien's thoughts:
"It was a really good, competitive game tonight. We didn't get the result we wanted. We wanted to win the game.
"We created enough good chances to get a goal, but Ohio did a great job defensively. They were rock-solid back there, and we couldn't break them down.
"For us, as a team, I'm really proud of the effort we put in. We took 19 shots and created a lot of strong chances, but we just have to be a little bit more clinical in the box and put our chances away.
"We've got a quick turnaround. We're going to play a really talented ACC team on Sunday, so we're excited about it and look forward to continuing to improve as a program."
- Mason, Brenner, senior Justis Bailey, junior Dom Diller, and freshman Logan McFadden went the full 110 minutes for the Purple and Gold.
- Lipscomb earned 10 corners to Ohio’s three.
- The Lady Bisons were whistled for eight fouls while the Bobcats were whistled for just five.
- Lipscomb was whistled for two offside penalties in the tie.
