Sept. 24, 2010
FRESNO, Calif. - The Fresno State women's soccer team played a tough match against UC Santa Barbara that lasted 110 minutes before the game ended in a 0-0 draw. The game went into double overtime and is the first tie the Bulldogs have recorded under head coach Brian Zwaschka. The `Dogs overall record of 4-5-1 this season.
"I was really proud of the team for the way they battled playing a good team," said Zwaschka. "They were organized. Both teams tried to attack today and it was a great game to watch despite the fact that no goals were scored. It was a testament to good goalkeeping and defending on both ends."
The Bulldogs kept the pressure on with another close call from Bradlee DeShane. The senior took a shot from well outside the 18-yard box and Gaucho goalkeeper Makenna Henry made a great save keeping the game scoreless.
Each team had six shots in the scoreless first half.
In the second half, the `Dogs recorded five shots. Megan Ashjian and Gonzalez led the team with three shots each against UCSB. All three of Gonzalez' shots were on goal.
Senior goalkeeper Kaitlyn Revel recorded her second shutout of the season and 26th of her career. She had three saves on the night.
The back line of Rachel Pickett, Lauren Lindstrom, Katie Lee and Kendall VanDine helped keep the game scoreless with solid defense. The four kept the Gaucho offense at bay.
