Women's Soccer Ties Rival Siena Heights, 1-1

The rivalry between Adrian and Siena Heights was physical and after 110 minutes the game ended in a 1-1 tie. The weather was not conducive to a high-scoring game and the first half was the only time each team cracked the scoreboard.

The Saints got an early break in the first half as a handball in the box led to a penalty kick. Bridgette Scott converted the chance for her first goal of the season at 16:50 to give SHU a 1-0 lead. The Bulldogs scored the equalizer on a nice play between McKenzie Doda and Sam Barker. Doda took the ball near the midfield line and lobbed a pass about 30 yards where Barker ran underneath and collected it before sprinting down the middle and sliding the ball past the goalkeeper at 42:42. It was Barker's fifth goal of the season.

Neither team scored the rest of the way through double overtime as the Bulldogs ended with four shots on goal and 13 total shots. Siena Heights also had 13 total shots with five shots on goal. Chayna Wallace made four saves and Haley Mancini had three saves for the Saints.
