WOMEN’S SOCCER PICKS UP POINT WITH SCORELESS DRAW IN IDAHO

MOSCOW, Idaho. — The Sacramento State women's soccer team played to a 0-0 draw Sunday afternoon as they took on the defending Big Sky regular season champion Idaho Vandals. The scoreless tie is their second straight after taking Eastern Washington to a 0-0 tie Friday afternoon.

The defense was again especially sharp for Sacramento State. Senior defender Chelsea Arnold continued to provide excellent support and played all 110 minutes this afternoon. Also sharp was Hornets goalkeeper Aaliyah Fesili, who was a perfect 5-for-5 in save opportunities. In the team's last two games, Fesili has logged a combined 220 minutes while making eight saves.

The Hornets offense was led by forward Kayla Collins, who paced the team with three shots – one of which was on goal. Right behind her were Kylee Kim-Bustillos (two shots, one on goal) and Caitlin Prothe (two shots, two on goal).

For the second straight game, Kim-Bustillos was held goalless. The freshman forward entered Big Sky play on Friday with a conference-leading five goals but was unable to find the back of the net in both conference match ups this weekend.

The double-overtime match is the Hornets second straight and fourth this season (fifth overtime contest overall). In those five games, the Hornets are 1-2-2.

With today's draw, they are now 5-4-2 (0-0-2) on the season. Their record away from Hornets Field remains impressive at 3-1-2.

The team returns to Sacramento this week as they host North Dakota on Friday, September 29 at 4:00 pm at Hornets Field.
