Lions can’t solve Brooklyn defense in scoreless draw

BRYN ATHYN, Pa. – The Bryn Athyn College women's soccer team controlled a majority of Tuesday night's non-conference contest with Brooklyn College, but couldn't break through the Bulldog defense in a scoreless draw on General Ronald K. Nelson Field.

Bryn Athyn (1-2-1) spent most of the game in the attacking third of the field and fired off 21 saves, 15 on goal, and earned 10 corner kicks. The 21 shots are the most since the Lions attempted 30 shots in a 12-0 win over Penn State Lehigh Valley on Sept. 13, 2018.

Maggie McCabe and Payton Gormley each attempted four shots and got three on goal, both team highs.

In the first half, Bryn Athyn owned a 10-3 advantage in shots, 7-0 in shots on goal. The Lions duplicated their 10-3 shot edge in the second half. Bryn Athyn once again put seven on target, while Allie Warren was called on to make two saves.

The teams were even in the first overtime session with each team recording one shot on goal. In the second overtime, Warren preserved the shutout and the draw by making a leg save on Rachel Gomez with just over six minutes.

Carmen Proffitt earned the shutout for Brooklyn (0-1-1) by stopping the 15 Bryn Athyn shots on goal.

It was the third 0-0 draw in Bryn Athyn history. The last one came in the first round of the North Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament at Lancaster Bible on Oct. 31, 2017.

Bryn Athyn now has 10 days off before returning to game action against Gwynedd Mercy University on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 1 p.m. on General Nelson Field.
