FARGO, N.D. - Facing one of its toughest tests of the season, Colorado State (1-4-2) rose to the occasion and played to a 0-0 tie after two overtimes against Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (6-1-2).
It was a match where both defenses refused to cave and kept their respective teams in the game. SIUE came into the match boasting a top 15 defense nationally, only allowing 0.415 goals per match and stopping 90.3 percent of the shots it has faced.
The Rams’ defense matched that execution as they posted their second shutout of the season this year.
While Colorado State couldn’t generate as much offense as SIUE, registering seven shots and three shots on goal, junior goalkeeper Maggie Sherman did her part to help the Rams earn a draw.
Sherman saved a career-high nine shots and posted her first career shutout in goal, as the Cougars desperately looked to find the game-winning goal to no avail.
SIUE took 18 shots in total and had three corner kicks compared to CSU’s one, but it made no difference on Sunday afternoon.
Erika Bratschun and Sasha Pchenitchnikova led Colorado State with two shots each, while Pchenitchnikova, Jessica Stauffer and Lizzy Gogolowski each recorded a shot on goal.
The Rams will now turn their attention to conference play which will begin on Sept. 27 when they host intra-state rival Air Force at 4 p.m. MT.
