Hammond, La. – Sam Houston State and Southeastern Louisiana battled to a scoreless tie in women’s soccer action Friday afternoon.
The result helped the Bearkats to remain unbeaten in Southland Conference play with a 2-0-1 record. SHSU is 5-7-1 for the year. The shutout was the fifth for the Bearkat defense.
Goalkeeper Kylie Hambleton, the Kats’ back line of Amanda Biega, Lindsey Posner, Ashley Fluty and Kayla Anderson and midfielder Shelby McDaniel each played all 110 minutes of the double overtime contest.
Sam Houston totaled 12 shots while Southeastern Louisiana took 10. Strong play by the defense helped shut down the Lions’ offense as Hambleton had to make only two saves in goal. Her counterpart, Lacey Bockhaus, was forced to make eight saves including one of a shot by Tricia Mallory with less than two minutes left in the first overtime.
“We played well,” Sam Houston head coach Tom Brown said. “We just couldn’t stick it in.”
Mallory led the Bearkats with four shots.
Sam Houston now travels to Tulsa to take on Oral Roberts Sunday afternoon.
