Women’s Soccer Plays to a 0-0 Draw with GW
DAVIDSON — The Davidson women’s soccer team kept its unbeaten streak alive Sunday with a 0-0 draw with George Washington at Alumni Stadium.
It’s the Wildcats’ first tie since the season-opening 1-1 draw at USC-Upstate and moves Davidson’s record to 10-2-2 overall and 3-2-1 in Atlantic 10 Conference play.
“A tie is probably about fair based on the quality of the chances,” said coach Adam Denton. “They had a really good chance, so did we. We didn’t start the game well. They came out, and we didn’t match their intensity and physicality. We were second to too many balls, which put us deeper, put us on the back foot. The second half was better from that respect. We matched them physically, but still didn’t retain possession when we had time.”
Aleia Gisolfi-McCready had the best scoring chance for the Wildcats in the 60th minute, but George Washington keeper Ainsley Lumpe made a difficult save.
Mary Grace Bunch made six stops in goal for the Wildcats, including a point-blank save of Lauren Prentice’s shot in the 47th minute.
Along with Sunday’s results, Davidson has recent 1-0 wins over Rhode Island and Loyola Chicago and a 3-0 victory over St. Bonaventure.
The Wildcats return to action Sunday, Oct. 9 when they visit Duquesne.
