Richmond, VA., – On senior night and the final home game of the regular season, the VCU Women’s Soccer Team tied with the Saint Louis Billikens 0-0 as both teams failed to score in 110 minutes of action in an pivotal Atlantic 10 matchup.
Even though both teams went scoreless, it was an up-tempo game where both teams had their chances to score. After being out shot by the Billikens in the first half by seven shots, VCU came out of halftime letting loose, unleashing 15 shots in the second half and in the two overtime periods combined, in which 6 of those shots were on goal. Both teams combined for 29 shots on the night. VCU senior, Emma Kruse, totaled 5 saves, and was impressive all game, but especially early in the first half when she saved two early shot attempts by the Billikens within the first 20 minutes of the game.
The Rams are now 8-7-3 (6-1-2) as they fall into third place in the A-10 Conference and Saint Louis is now 8-8-2 (2-5-2) and remains in the 11th spot in the A-10 Conference. The Rams final game of the regular season will take place this Sunday at 1:00 pm as they travel to meet their crosstown rivals, the Richmond Spiders, before the A-10 Conference Tournament begins November 5 in Davidson, NC.
