Tulsa Women Battle Florida Atlantic to 0-0 Tie
Sept. 29, 2013
Tulsa, Oklahoma -
The Tulsa women's soccer team battled Florida Atlantic to a 0-0 double-overtime tie on Sunday afternoon at the Hurricane Soccer and Track Stadium. TU moved to 7-3-1 on the season and 1-0-1 in Conference USA, while FAU moved to 2-6-3 overall and 0-0-2 in the league.
"I think it shows that there is a lot of parity in our league," Head Coach Kyle Cussen said. "Florida Atlantic did a good job of keeping the field compact, even when we got into the final third and got our chances, we didn't get good chances. It was a frustrating game and it felt like we did enough to create good chances, but it was one of those games. We have to be sharper in the final third and get ready for our next game."
Both teams battled for the 110 minutes but neither team could find the back of the net.
TU had a 21-4 lead in shots, including a 5-3 advantage in shots on goal, and a 6-1 lead in corner kicks.
Claire Nicholson and Jordan O'Brien led the Golden Hurricane with four shots apiece, while Lana Bermel had three attempts, all of which were on goal, and Tine Schryvers came in off the bench and had two shots.
Hayley Harryman logged all 110 minutes between the posts, recorded three saves and earned her sixth shutout on the year.
Tulsa will return to action on Friday, Oct. 4th against Southern Miss. Game time is set for 4:00 pm Central in Hattiesburg, Miss.
