Sept. 12 – HIRAM, Ohio – Sophomore goal keeper Ally Green tallied her second-career shutout as the Hiram College women's soccer team played to a 0-0 draw with Marietta College on Tuesday evening at Charles A. Henry Field.
The sophomore keeper was solid in her first start of the 2017 campaign, making eight saves over the course of the evening. The shutout marks her second career clean sheet, with the first coming in a start against Bethany College in 2016.
The Pioneer goalkeeper, Katie Conkle, was also up to the challenge, as she made seven saves to also keep the Terriers off the scoreboard and force the draw.
Forcing more of the action in the overtime frame, the Terriers placed three shots on net in the first ten minutes of the extra time. Senior Delaney Stryczek, as well as freshmen Caroline Watson and Courtney Wendel, all attempted shots on net, with Conkle making three solid saves to keep the game scoreless.
Only two shots were attempted in the final overtime period, both by the visiting Pioneers. The first shot for Marietta was blocked by defender Val Lauderback, while the final attempt from either side was kept away on a save by Green.
Both Green and Conkle finished the game with seven stops in 110 minutes of action.
Offensively for the Terriers, Hannah Ward led the way with three shots, including one on net. Stryczek tallied a pair of shots on goal, with the other attempts on net coming from Wendel, Watson and senior Emily Syrjala.
Hiram will get back to work on Friday, September 15, as they travel to Bethany, W. Va. to take on the Bison of Bethany College. The game is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start.
