The Gustavus women’s soccer team received a strong performance from first year goalkeeper Jessica Richert, who recorded her first career shutout, and battled #22 UW-Stevens Point to a 0-0 tie after playing through 90 minutes of regulation play and two 10 minute overtimes. It was the first tie of the season for the Gusties who move to 6-4-1 overall.
The Gusties were on the defensive for much of the match as UW-Stevens Point held a 12-3 advantage in shots, but strong play in the nets by Richert and solid team defensive effort kept the Pointers off the scoreboard.
In the 27-year history of the Gustavus women’s soccer program (460 games), the team has played to a 0-0 tie only 13 times. The last time was last season against Luther College.
