DAVIDSON — Two 45-minute halves and two overtimes weren’t enough to determine a winner between Davidson and Duquesne Sunday afternoon in women’s soccer at Alumni Stadium, as the Atlantic 10 foes ended in a 0-0 draw after 110 minutes of play.

It’s the Wildcats’ second tie of the year, following an 0-0 match against USC-Upstate on Sept. 9.

“We’re continuing to work and battle,” said Davidson coach Adam Denton. “We had some better chances in the second half and had some momentum. And we’re proud of the clean sheet by the defense.”

The teams were even with four shots-on-goal apiece. Kendall Bushick led Davidson with two, with her chances coming in the 51st and 54th minutes. Remi White’s shot was saved in the 33rd minute, and Aleia Gisolfi-McCready’s right-to-left chance was stopped in the 79th.  

The Dukes’ best opportunity came in a flurry of activity in the 49th minute, when they hit the post and had another shot saved.

Freshman keeper Emily Smith replaced Mary Grace Bunch in the first half and played the final 99:07, making two stops. Bunch made two saves in the first 3:26.
