CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The Drake University women’s soccer team batted the UNI Panthers to a scoreless draw, 0-0, on Tuesday, Oct. 11 night in Missouri Valley Conference play. Drake is now 9-3-2 overall and 0-2-1 in MVC play. UNI is 7-5-3 and 1-1-2 in MVC action.”We were very good tonigh and dominated possession and controlled much of the game,” said head coach Lindsey Horner. “There were moments when we had UNI on their heels and created dangerous opportunities to win the game, but we didn’t capitalize. Defensively we were solid and they never really tested our goalkeeper. This was a great performance demonstrating growth in many areas we trained this month, less the ever important goal. This feels a bit like we missed out on 2 points but UNI is undefeated at home and it’s always great to earn a shutout on the road and grab a point.” The Bulldogs were the aggressive team early in the game as senior Kayla Armstrong (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) and junior Brooke Salisbury (Kearney, Mo.) fired back-to-back shots wide just over 11 minutes into the first half. Salisbury fired Drake’s final shot attempt of the half wide as well.
