Women’s Soccer And Saint Ben’s Tie 0-0 Posted on October 14th, 2017 by


ST. PETER, Minn. – For the second consecutive game the Gustavus women’s soccer team played to a double overtime scoreless draw, this time against Saint Benedict on Saturday at the Gustie Soccer Field. The tie moves the Gusties to 7-4-3 overall and 3-3-2 in the MIAC, while the Blazers move to 8-2-2 overall and 4-2-2 in the league.

“We played well in the first half and got a lot of shots on goal early in the game to establish our attack,” Head Coach Laura Burnett-Kurie said. “We played hard and battled, but we just need to find a way to put the ball in the back of the net. I was impressed with the way Lucy Thompson (So., Edina, Minn.) played and Ashley Becker (Jr., Farmington, Minn.) got another shutout against a strong attack.”

Gustavus got five straight shots off in the first 18 minutes of the game and outshot the Blazers 8-0 in the first 45 minutes. Saint Ben’s then put together more of an offensive attack in the second half, outshooting the Gusties 5-4. At the final buzzer, the Black and Gold outshot the visitors 13-9.

Chase Miller (Jr., Brooklyn Park, Minn.) led the offense with eight shots. Becker made three saves in her seventh shutout of the season.

Gustavus has a week off and then hosts St. Catherine at 3 p.m. next Saturday.
