Women's Soccer Can't Break Through, Ties Columbia

Follow @PennWSoccer

NEW YORK CITY - In a match that was delayed two hours due to extreme weather, the University of Pennsylvania women's soccer team finished with a 0-0 tie at Columbia Friday night.

It was another frustrating result for the Quakers, who once again outplayed their opponent much as they did earlier in the week against Lehigh. Penn was able to gain a point with the result this time, though, and moved to 4-3-4 overall, 0-1-2 in Ivy play. Columbia is now 5-5-1 overall, 1-1-1 in Ivy play.

Penn outshot Columbia in the match, 18-6, including an 11-2 advantage in the second half. Olivia Blaber put three shots on goal, while Erin Mikolai and Paige Lombard had two each. Columbia keeper Allison Spencer had seven saves in the match, while Carrie Crook made one stop in posting her fourth shutout in the last seven matches.

Penn makes one final foray outside of Ivy League play; that comes Tuesday, when the Quakers host American University at 7:30 p.m. In addition to being streamed live on the Ivy League Digital Network, Tuesday’s match -- which is the second half of a doubleheader with the Penn men -- will be televised live on ESPN3.
