Mesa, Arizona – The Marymount California University Women's Soccer Team opened up their Cal Pac Conference play on the road on Friday night against The Benedictine University at Mesa Redhawks. After a hard-fought battle, the end result was a 0-0 tie in double overtime.
The Mariners started the first half by putting pressure on the Redhawk defense. Madison Villela took the first shot of the game, forcing Benedictine's keeper to make the save. MCU's offense would go on to have 14 shots to Benedictine Mesa's 10, yet none of the shots on either end would find the back of the net.
The defenses for both teams held strong throughout regulation and double-overtime, leading to the 0-0 draw at the end of the game. Goalkeeper, Luz Lopez (FR/Long Beach, Calif.), came away from the night with 6 saves, and her third straight shutout of the season.
