Southern Maine, Saint Joseph's Play to Scoreless Draw

            STANDISH, Maine -- The University of Southern Maine Huskies and the Saint Joseph's College Monks played to a scoreless, double overtime draw Wednesday afternoon in a non-conference women's soccer match at Westerlea Way Field.

            The draw leaves the Huskies with a 2-12-2 record overall.  The Monks finished the regular season with a 7-4-5 mark.  The scoreless draw was the Huskies first since 2008, and the tie was the first in the history of the series that dates back to 1988.

            The Huskies held a slight edge in shots (12-10) during the 110 minutes, and a 7-0 advantage in corner kicks.

            USM senior goalkeeper Kat Rothe (Leeds, Maine/Leavitt Area) collected her third clean sheet of the season stopping six shots.  Sophomore keeper Jaci Lorenzen (Windham, Maine) made four saves to earn her sixth shutout for Saint Joseph's.

            Southern Maine will close the season this Saturday (1:00 p.m.) hosting Rhode Island College in a Little East Conference match.  Saint Joseph's will travel to Lasell College on Saturday (1:00 p.m.) for a Great Northeast Athletic Conference quarterfinal round playoff game.
