Women’s Soccer Plays to 0-0 2OT Draw at Clark in NEWMAC Opener

WORCESTER, Mass.—Babson College first-year goalkeeper Morgan Fedosiewich (Ottawa, Ontario) finished with a season-high 12 saves as visiting Babson College battled to a 0-0 double-overtime draw with Clark University in New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) women's soccer action on Saturday afternoon at Granger Field.

With the result, Babson is now 4-3-1 overall and 0-0-1 in league play, while Clark is now 5-3-1 overall and 0-1-1 in the NEWMAC.

Despite getting outshot 18-13 over 110 minutes, the Beavers had three of the best scoring chances of the afternoon. Sophomore Kate Ryan (Winchester, Mass.) had her six-yard blast denied thanks to a great save by senior Julianna Christy (Plainville, Conn.) in the 52nd minute, and sophomore Morgan Small (Quartertown, Pa.) sprawled out to snag first-year Maria Colon Figueroa's (Needham, Mass.) shot from the top of the box in the 98th minute.

Babson's final scoring chance came in the closing seconds of the second overtime when Ryan hit the post following sophomore Maite Gutierrez's (Miami, Fla.) corner kick.

Fedosiewich made six saves over the opening 45 minutes, which included diving stops on senior Maya Mashkuri (Montpelier, Vt.) in the second minute and first-year Lila McNamee (Cheshire, Conn.) in the 36th minute. Two of her second-half stops came over the final five minutes of regulation, and she turned away two more shots in extra time to record her fifth clean sheet of the year.

Christy and Small both finished with three saves for the Cougars, who played three different goalkeepers on the day.

Babson returns to action on Wednesday when it visits WPI at 4 p.m., while Clark hosts MIT next Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
