Scoreless Stalemate as No. 1 Tritons Open Conference Play in Hayward
HAYWARD, Calif. – The No. 1 University of California San Diego women’s soccer team tied Cal State East Bay, 0-0, after double overtime on Friday night. With the stalemate, the Tritons move to 5-0-1 overall on the season and start at 0-0-1 in conference play, while the Pioneers move to 1-3-3 overall and 0-0-1 in conference action.
UC San Diego was in control throughout the game, but was unable to find the back of the net. The Tritons were relentless, out-shooting the Pioneers 28-1. Eight of the Tritons’ shots were on-goal, while the Pioneers did not manage any shots on-goal. The Triton defense made light work for goalkeeper Angelica Ramos, who played all 110 minutes in the net.
With its barrage of shots, UC San Diego had a number of close chances. In overtime, Kameryn Hoban’s shot in the 96th minute ricocheted off the crossbar. During the second overtime period, Emily Killeen’s header ultimately bounced up and slightly over the Pioneer goal.
