Easton, Pa. – The Lafayette women’s soccer team battled Temple to a scoreless draw on Sunday afternoon at Oaks Stadium. Leopard goalkeeper Danielle Sedillo made five saves in the tie. Lafayette moved to 3-2-1 on the season.

Temple had the first chance of the game just three and a half minutes in when a cross from Taylor Matsinger dipped over Sedillo’s head and bounced off the back post and out. The Leopards pressured the Owls the next few minutes and earned a corner, but Temple was able to clear the danger.

In the 36th minute, Lafayette’s Samantha Potoczak fired a shot on frame, but Temple’s Shauni Kerkhoff was there to make the save. A minute later, Sedillo was called into action again, as she stopped a shot from Temple’s Shannon Senour. Lafayette was able to clear a late corner to keep the match tied at the half.

Early in the second half, the Owls pressured the Lafayette defense. Temple earned three corners in the first fifteen minutes of the second frame, but the Leopards were there to clear all of them.

In the 67th minute, the Leopards had their best chance of the afternoon. Allie Torru ripped a shot that beat everyone, but rang off the crossbar. The Owls threatened late in the second half with a pair of corner kicks, but once again the Leopards were there to clear both.

Temple had the majority of play in the first overtime, as Lafayette’s Sedillo was forced to make a pair of saves. The second overtime saw the Leopards control play. In the final minute of the contest, Lafayette earned three corners, but the Owls were able to defend and preserve the 0-0 draw.

The Leopards and Owls each fired ten shots, three on goal for Lafayette and five on frame for Temple. The Owls earned nine corners to the Leopards six.
