Women's Soccer Ties, 0-0, At Robert Morris

MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - The Quinnipiac University women's soccer team tied, 0-0, against Robert Morris, in a Northeast Conference match held at the North Athletic Complex on Sunday, Oct. 17. With the draw, the Bobcats become 4-6-3 on the season and 2-2-3 in the NEC. The Colonials are now 5-8-2 overall and 2-3-1 in conference play.

"We dominated the game, but we didn't score," said Head Coach Dave Clarke. "Our back four were tremendous, but we missed so many clear cut opportunities. We've just got to find a way to put the ball in the back of the net over the next three (conference) games."

Quinnipiac outshot Robert Morris, 15-11, during regulation time. However, the Bobcats were unable to find the back of the net and the game was forced into overtime, for Quinnipiac's third time this season.

Junior goalkeeper Jillian Kelley (Simsbury, Conn.) made one save for the Bobcats during the first 90 minutes of play, while Jessica Olin made nine saves for the Colonials.

Quinnipiac forward Furtuna Velaj (Stamford, Conn.) had three shots in the last five minutes of overtime play. However, the junior was unable to capitalize, and the game resulted in a 0-0 draw.

With the tie, Kelley earns her third shutout of the season.

The Bobcats play Bryant University on Friday Oct. 22 for a conference match-up at the Bryant Track and Turf Complex in Smithfield, Rhode Island. The game is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m.
