FOREST GROVE --- The Bruins' women's soccer program completed its season series against the Boxers on Saturday, Oct. 13, with a match in Pacific City. The two sides played through 110 minutes of a defensive struggle to end in a 0-0 draw after four periods of play.

Recap

The Bruins were able to set the pace and dictated terms more frequently on offense, generating the first shot of the match in less than two minutes of play. The first three shots of the match all came off the foot of a Bruin, and the Bruins did a good job of pressuring throughout the half.

After taking a 0-0 draw into the halftime intermission the two teams again tried to break up the scoreless tie, but neither team found the net after reaching the 90 minute mark. Both overtimes came and went without a proverbial golden goal, and in the end a 0-0 shutout was the order of the day for the two sides.

Top Performers

Annalisa Klein and the Bruin defense did their jobs to collect another shutout on the year. The Bruins' back line kept the pressure on the Boxer players from start to finish, as Klein needed to make just one save in 110 minutes of action.

What It Means

The Bruins are now 3-6-2 on the year after the draw and move to 1-6-2 against Northwest Conference teams in the 2018 campaign.

What Happens Next

The Bruins are back on the road on Sunday, Oct. 14, with a test at Linfield in McMinnville, Ore., beginning at 12:00 pm.
