The Southwestern Assemblies of God University women's soccer team began the new season with a shutout Friday.
The only problem was that SAGU was also shutout during the double-overtime nil-nil tie against the Randall University Saints.
Statistically, SAGU dominated the match, outshooting Randall University by a jaw-dropping 48-4 on the afternoon. In fact, the Saints did not record a shot-on-goal until the second half.
SAGU goalie Sarah Palmer, a junior from Grapevine, was called upon to make only three saves on the day.
Randall University, playing with 11 players for the match, packed its defense into the 18-yard box and waited for SAGU to attack. Randall University goalie, Madi Harris, had an incredible 27 saves during the match.
SAGU Coach Paul Hason said he was frustrated after not coming away with a win but remained confident with the work ethic displayed by the Lady Lions.
“We dominated the whole match but, to Randall University’s credit, we could not put the ball in the back of the net," Hason stated.
The Lady Lions returned to action at home Tuesday against Paul Quinn College of Dallas. The final score was not available as of press time.
