For the second time in a week, the visiting team at Memorial Stadium in Clarion was held scoreless. However, the home team was also held scoreless.
The Clarion University women’s soccer team ended the game in a 0-0 tie with visiting Alderson Broaddus College.
“I was extremely impressed with the first performance,” Head Coach Rob Eaton said of his team.
The Golden Eagles had several opportunities to score, but just couldn’t find the back of the net. Of the 22 shots Clarion attempted, 14 were on target.
“We look more dangerous in the attacking third. It’s a shame we didn’t score, the girls gave everything they could and I’m very happy,” Eaton said.
Senior midfielder, Lauren Barbour, who registered a shot on goal, was also pleased with her team’s performance.
“I thought we did extremely well. We connected. We just have to put the ball in the back of the net,” Barbour said.
Coach Eaton thinks if the team continues to play the way it did today, then the team will eventually find a way to score.
“If we play that way continually, the ball will go in the back of the net,” Eaton said.
The Clarion midfield had quality production all day as they were able to move the ball around and get shots on goal.
“I thought everybody played well. I need to point out that Alexa Ream, who is a freshman, played every minute and she’s been on fire. Reamy and Crystal Miller were absolutely tremendous,” Eaton said.
“Our midfield did a great job moving the ball around. We controlled the tempo of the game well and locked them in their half most of the game,” sophomore forward Liz Ventura said.
Sophomore goal keeper, Laura Saussol had a fairly easy day as she only had to make three saves on eight shot attempts.
Clarion (0-0-1) will return to action Wednesday, September 5 when it hosts Millersville University. The game is scheduled to start at 4 p.m.
