    FRESNO, Calif.---After the full 90 minutes and two ten minute overtime periods, Fresno State soccer played to a 1-1 tie against San Francisco Sunday afternoon at Negoesco Stadium.

    "We made some positive strides today," head coach Brian Zwaschka said. "We collectively executed a game plan that showed a lot of positive development. Finishing is clearly the difference we need to address to capitalize on control of a game."

    The Bulldogs got on the scoreboard first in the 17th minute. Junior Morgan Castain found senior Callie Hancock in the box who was able to put the ball in the back of the net for her second goal of the season.

    Going into halftime, the `Dogs continued to lead 1-0, while sophomore goalkeeper Katie DeVault had 4 saves.

    Three minutes into the second half, DeVault came up with a critical diving save to keep Fresno State ahead.

    Halfway through the second half, San Francisco freshman Rochelle Weerackoo tied the score 1-1 from about ten yards out.

    At the end of regulation, the score remained 1-1, forcing a sudden death overtime period. The 'Dogs played two ten minute golden goal periods, but neither team was able to come out on top.

    "We have created many chances this weekend," said Zwaschka. "When we start to put just a few more chances away we will be able to manage the games better. We've shown we are very capable, so we'll keep pushing for results in prep for conference play."

     

     

    Fresno State will host its home opener on Friday, Aug. 24 at 7 p.m. at Bulldog Stadium when the 'Dogs will take on No. 6 UCLA.
