Bridgeview, Ill. – The Roosevelt women's soccer team controlled possession and the pace of the match on Saturday versus Holy Cross, but had to settle for a draw with the visiting Saints as the contest ended scoreless following two overtime periods at Toyota Park.
The Lakers are now 2-7-1 overall on the year and 0-4-1 in the CCAC. Holy Cross moved to 1-8-1, 0-4-1 in the league.
The Lakers were just inches from the breakthrough goal, hitting the post twice and watching another ball deflect off the keeper and just miss crossing the goal line. Roosevelt's best opportunity, though, came in the 81st minute when a foul in the box led to a penalty kick. Freshman Mackenzie Money took the PK, but Holy Cross keeper Aileen Clouse stayed home and made the save on the ball kicked directly at her initial position.
The Lakers outshot the Saints by an 18-6 margin, forcing Clouse to make seven saves. Roosevelt keeper Sydney Self made two saves for her second clean sheet of the season.
Roosevelt will be back in action on Wednesday when they travel to Palos Heights, Ill., to take on Trinity Christian at 4:00 p.m.
