The College of Staten Island women’s soccer team kept their unbeaten CUNYAC Regular Season alive this afternoon, settling for a 0-0 tie with Brooklyn College in their conference finale played in Brooklyn. The tie moved CSI to 6-6-2 overall and 5-0-1 in the CUNYAC, while the Bulldogs moved to 4-7-1, 3-0-1, respectively.
Although it wasn’t the win the Dolphins wanted, CSI was able to keep their CUNYAC unbeaten streak to 24 games with the draw, a streak dating back to 2011.
Just because the game remained scoreless through two overtimes, does not mean that the teams did not have plenty of chances. The game featured 20 shots on goal and 37 total shots, as Brooklyn held a 22-15 overall advantage. CSI keeper Victoria Donegan made 12 stops for CSI, including a pair in overtime to help keep the game scoreless. BC rookie Rebecca Harmata made eight saves.
Brooklyn College was flagged for 10 offside’s in the game as CSI worked the trap especially well, scoring their fifth CUNYAC shutout this season. In fact, the Dolphins have not given up a goal to a CUNYAC opponent in the last 430-plus minutes in 2014.
Winding down its season, CSI will next play at home on Wednesday, October 22, against Rutgers-Camden, at 4pm.
