TULSA, Okla. - The Oral Roberts women's soccer team picked up a 0-0 draw Sunday afternoon at the Case Soccer Complex. The Cougars and Golden Eagles battled for 110 minutes of action, but neither team was able to find the back of the net.
Oral Roberts was able to hold possession of the ball for much of the first period and hold the visiting Cougars to just one shot to open the contest.
SIUE came out in the second half more aggressive, putting seven shots on goal and testing freshman goalkeeper Ryliegh Bohnenstiehl but to no avail. Edwardsville would rattle off 13 shots in the second half and overtime but the ORU defense would hold steady throughout.
SIUE's Emily Grahl broke through the ORU defense in the 66th minute to deliver a bullet at the net but Bohnenstiehl made a diving effort to save the ball and prevent the go-ahead goal.
