ALLIANCE, OH —
The Frostburg State women’s soccer team battled Wooster College to a scoreless draw in the second day of the Mount Union Invitational Sunday afternoon in Alliance.
Bobcat junior goalkeeper Stephanie Zych (Guilderland/Slingerlands, N.Y.) recorded a career-high 19 saves, including a diving stop in the 30th minute to keep the Scots (3-0-2) off the board.
Frostburg State (0-0-2) had a few chances in the overtime sessions but came up empty.
In the first extra frame, senior Tiffany Parker (Northeast/Pasadena, Md.) got past Wooster keeper Nicole Roman, but the ball was kicked away by a Scot defender. Parker then headed the clearing attempt off the post as the game remained scoreless.
The Bobcats looked to finish things off in the second overtime, but Roman made a diving save of a one-timer by FSU senior Christina Bleivik (Bartlett/Anchorage, Alaska).
FSU, which fought Mount Union to a 1-1 tie in its season-opener Friday night, played its opening two matches of the season without sophomore Karen Kotofski (Northeast/Glen Burnie, Md.), who is currently nursing a leg injury. Kotofski set single-season school records with 21 goals and 49 points last season.
"I was very happy with our team's overall effort, especially with Karen out of the lineup" said Bobcat head coach Brian Parker. "Our defense kept everything in front, but we just couldn't connect on a few scoring chances."
The Bobcats will seek their first win of the year on Tuesday when they visit Westminster for a 4:30 p.m. contest.
