HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – ULM soccer wrapped up a busy three-match week with a scoreless draw at Alabama A&M Sunday afternoon.
“We just finished a very long week and our non-conference segment finishes at 3-3-2,” head coach Keyton Wheelock said.
D’Essence Burnett took the first shot of the game for the Bulldogs (2-5-1) at the two minute mark, but it went wide left. ULM (3-4-2) followed that up five minutes later with back to back shots by Madi Garza and Erika Wiest, but neither could find the back of the net.
In the 28th minute, Jameela Barrett took a shot for Alabama A&M, but couldn’t capitalize on the opportunity.
The Warhawks turned around and Taylor Altieri took a shot of her on, but couldn’t connect. A few minutes later, Altieri took another shot that missed, but that was followed up by Valerie Fleijsman shot that missed as well.
As the half was ending, Alexis Cherry and Victori Altieri both moved toward the goal, but neither could connect. The two teams went into halftime scoreless.
Camryn Ciaramella immediately started the second half off with a bang, taking a shot one minute into the half, but it was wide right. Garza took another shot a few minutes later that was saved before the Bulldogs’ Burnett raced down the field to shoot, but Rian Kasner was there for her first save of the day.
At the 70 minute mark, Taylor Altieri took back-to-back shots that were both saved before Blake DelaMater took her first shot of the night. That shot was also saved.
Taylor Altieri took her fifth and final shot of the night that couldn’t connect before Amanda Castillo took another shot that missed as regulation time expired. Both teams were heading to overtime, still scoreless.
Castillo opened the first overtime quickly with a shot that was high. A few minutes later, Garza took her fourth and final shot that was wide left. The Bulldogs would have another opportunity as Barrett took a shot with 10 seconds left that hit the bar. The game was heading to a second overtime.
Fleijsman took a shot two minutes into the last overtime that missed before Castillo took her third and final shot of the night that couldn’t find the net. Neither team would have another opportunity and time expired with the game ending in a scoreless draw.
“Now we need to focus 100 percent on our conference schedule and making the conference tournament,” Wheelock said.
The Warhawks will travel to Mobile on Friday to take on South Alabama at 7 p.m.
