No. 11 MIT Extends Shutout Streak With Double OT Draw Against No. 16 Tufts

More news about: MIT women's team


THE BASICS:


Score: No. 11 MIT 0, No. 16 Tufts University

Records: No. 11 MIT (6-1-2); No. 16 Tufts University (5-1-1)

Location: Cambridge, Mass. (Roberts Field at Steinbrenner Stadium)

The Lead: In a battle of two of the top teams in New England this fall, the No. 11 nationally-ranked MIT women's soccer team and No. 16 ranked Tufts University played to a scoreless double overtime draw this afternoon in Cambridge.

HOW IT HAPPENED:

- Tufts took the only two shots on net for either team over the opening 45 minutes of action as MIT keeper Ava Gillikin (Flemington, N.J.) stopped both attempts. 

- The Engineers had many more opportunities to score in the second stanza as MIT outshot Tufts 9-5 and forced Hayley Bernstein to make six saves over the second 45 minutes of play. MIT had two great chances to take a 1-0 lead in the second half, but Sophia Struckman's (Scottsdale, Ariz.) free kick from the top of the box in the 49th minute sailed right of the net and Emily Berzolla's (Riverside, Conn.) shot in the 83rd minute ricocheted off the crossbar.

- In overtime, Tufts outshot MIT by a 7-4 margin, but neither team could find the back of the net as the match ended in the 0-0 draw. Lauren Castle (Ridgefield, Conn.) came into the match to play goal for the Engineers in overtime and came up huge with four saves in 20 minutes. Sophie Lloyd put a shot on net from inside the box in the 106th minute and Castle dove to her left to keep the match scoreless.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:

- MIT earned its highest ranking in program history in this week's United Soccer Coaches Division III National Poll as the Engineers currently sit at No. 11 in the country. This mark tops the previous highest ranking of No. 12, which came at the conclusion of the 2017 season. MIT is also ranked 12th in the latest D3Soccer.com National Poll. 

- The stats for both teams were nearly identical as Tufts held a slim 21-20 advantage in shots, while MIT held a 4-2 edge in corner kicks.

- The goalkeepers for both squads were impressive as Gillikin and Castle teamed up for ten saves and MIT's sixth straight shutout, while Bernstein stopped nine shots in a complete game effort for the Jumbos.

- The scoreless draw extended MIT's shutout streak to six, which tied the program record set by both the 2014 team and the 2016 edition of the Engineers. It also extended MIT's unbeaten streak at home, which now stands at 41.

- Today's draw between the Jumbos and the Engineers marked the first one between the two clubs in the all-time series which dates back to 2011.

UP NEXT:

- MIT returns to conference play on Saturday with a home match against Smith College at 1:00 pm.
