SAINT PETER, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s soccer team hosted Carleton Wednesday night and the game ended in a 0-0 tie. With the tie, the Gusties move to 4-2-1 this season while the Knights are now 4-1-2.

“This was probably one of the most entertaining 110 minutes of scoreless soccer you could watch,” said Head Coach Burnett-Kurie. “Both teams came to play and created dangerous opportunities. We battled really hard start to finish, and finishing out a scoreless double overtime takes a lot of grit. We are super proud of our players for fighting and riding the highs and lows of the game.”

The Gusties and Knights played 110 minutes of scoreless soccer in the contest but that did not mean there was a lack of offensive. Superb goalie play on both sides as well as really good defense combined for the two shutouts. The Gusties had 15 shots on the contest with 10 on goal, while the Knights had 17 shots with 12 being saved by Abby Goodno (Fy., Little Canada, Minn.). Goodno’s play has been impressive this year as her record moves to 3-1-1 thanks to a variety of spectacular saves today. The Gusties had an array of players take multiple shots in the game but Katie Ashpole (So., Chaska, Minn.), Emily Skogseth (Sr., Burnsville, Minn.), and Chase Miller (Brooklyn Park, Minn.) all had three shots for the Gusties, with Ashpole and Miller each recording two shots on goal.

“Our entire back line along with Abby Goodno played a really solid game. Sophie Olson (So., Minneapolis, Minn.) and Erin Teichroew (So., Duluth, Minn.) remained extremely tough the entire game in the center back position for us,” said Burnett-Kurie. “A big goal for us is to not become complacent and we need to make sure that tomorrow we are continuing to push ourselves to improve and to get to the next level.”

The next action for the Gusties will be on Saturday as they will travel to St. Thomas for a 1 p.m. contest.
