HONOLULU, Hawai'i -
The University of Wyoming women's soccer team played regional rival Denver in Honolulu, Hawai'i in a game that ended in a draw, 0-0, after 110 minutes of play late Saturday evening. The Cowgirls outplayed the Pioneers as UW had 11 shots on the night, while Denver only had four.
"The work rate from our team was good again," Cowgirl head coach Pete Cuadrado said. "But when you outshoot a team 11-4 and have seven corners to their zero, we need someone to step up and put a ball in the net."
Leading the way for the Cowgirls in shots was sophomore forward Candace Sciberras, who recorded three shots on the night. Other Cowgirls that added to the shot total were forwards Jessie Gentle and Shaina Ashouri and defender Sammi Dunda accumulating two shots apiece. They were followed by junior forward Laurel Ramer and freshman defender Alyssa Murray with one shot each.
UW's defense continues to stay strong as they only allowed one shot on goal of the four that were taken. All four of the Pioneer shots were taken in the first half. Goalkeepers Georgia Rowntree and Cassidy Entsminger split time in the net as Rowntree had the only save of the match for the Cowgirls.
Of the 11 shots that were taken by Wyoming five of them came in the first half, leaving five for the second stanza and one for the first overtime period. The only corner kicks of the match came from the Cowgirls who had seven all coming in regulation.
The all-time record between the Cowgirls and Pioneers is now at 5-1-3, with Denver leading the series. Currently the Pokes are 0-0-3 on the season.
The Cowgirls return to the pitch on Friday to take on the Morehead State Eagles at home, which will begin the home portion of the schedule. The match is slated to start at 3 p.m. MT.
