OAKLAND, Calif. --- The full 90 minutes wasn't enough Sunday, as the George Fox women's soccer team and the Hawks of Holy Names had to walk away with a 0-0 double overtime finish.

There wasn't a whole lot of action in the first period, as both teams knew they were in for the quite the barnburner. The Hawks were able to get off two more shots than the Bruins, 7-5, but both teams managed to put just two on frame.

The Bruins and the Hawks went into the half all squared up, 0-0.

The second period proved to be in favor for the Bruins, using a wide variety of quality shots by multiple players. Hannah Harder led the young group with two shots, while Kayla Caldeira had a shot in the box that found the hands of Hawks' goalkeeper Vanessa Amaral.

Both teams set their sights for overtime searching for the game-winner.

Both overtime periods were all Hawks, but the Bruins' defense was up for the challenge. In fact, the defense blocked two huge shots in the second overtime period that were in the box.

Top Performers:
Harder led the offense with three shots on the day. Caldeira and Emma Weme recorded two apiece while five other Bruins tallied one shot each. Kelsey Kammerzell and Morgan Bars split time between the sticks, but it was Bars who played the second period and both overtime periods. Bars recorded five saves, while Kammerzell notched two.

What It Means:
The Bruins are knocking on the door of opportunity with a 0-3-1 overall record. Despite the winless record, the Bruins have been within one goal of all three losses.

What Comes Next:
The Bruins will start the Northwest Conference schedule on Sept. 14 at 7p.m. against Lewis & Clark.
