Women's Soccer Ties Penn State Behrend, Sets School Record With Sixth Straight Shutout
ERIE, PA —
Frostburg State battled Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference rival Penn State Behrend to a hard-fought 0-0 tie Saturday afternoon on the Behrend Fields.
The Bobcats improved to 6-5-2 overall and 5-0-1 in the AMCC with their school-record sixth straight shutout, eclipsing the former mark of five set last year. The Lions ran their unbeaten streak to seven and are now 9-2-3 overall and 5-0-2 in conference action.
With the AMCC using a point system that awards three points for a win and one for a tie, Penn State Behrend holds a slight 17-16 edge over Frostburg State for the top spot in the league. The Bobcats have three AMCC contests remaining and the Lions have two.
Sophomore goalie Molly Whyte (Basking Ridge, N.J./Ridge) was the story for FSU, as she extended her scoreless streak to an impressive 579:31 with her third shutout of the season.
She has not allowed a goal since a 1-0 loss to Carnegie Mellon September 21 and boasts a 0.70 goals against average.
Whyte came through with several clutch saves in a flurry of action in the second half. After deflecting a breakaway shot over the crossbar, she then made point-blank stops off three consecutive corner kicks to keep the game scoreless.
Frostburg State junior Danielle Carter (Rockville, Md./Rockville) had a pair of solid scoring chances in the first half but came up empty. Her shot on a breakaway was right at Lion junior keeper Dara Nielsen, and later her header off a corner kick went wide of the net.
Bobcat junior Lindsay Hoffman (Frederick, Md./Thomas Johnson (ETSU)) also had a great chance in the second half on a breakaway, but she drilled a shot from the left side right at Nielsen.
Frostburg State will look to extend its six-match unbeaten streak Tuesday when it visits La Roche for a key AMCC contest starting at 4 pm.
