DePauw Draws in Double-Overtime Against Denison

Granville, Ohio- The DePauw University women's soccer team finished its second double-overtime game in a scoreless tie against an aggressive Denison University.

Intense would be one way to describe the matchup between DePauw and Denison. Entering the game as one and two seeds, respectively, Denison came out with an aggressiveness that was quickly matched by the Tigers. 

DePauw's speed and ability to contain Denison on the attack allowed the Tigers to get off seven shots to the Big Red's five. Though DePauw had a couple promising looks at goal, Denison remained tenacious in its defensive end, leading to a scoreless half. 

In the second half, the Tigers put on a shooting clinic tallying eight shots to Dension's two. DePauw's backline led by Natalie Kelley played a significant role in keeping the game scoreless as regulation came to an end.

Fighting for the top spot in the NCAC took not one, but two overtimes, and yet neither team was able to pull ahead. The Tigers, however, did finish the match on top statistically, recording 20 shots with 11 of those shots on goal, while keeping Denison to just ten shots and three on goal. 

DePauw returns home once more to face Ohio Wesleyan University on Wednesday, Oct. 23, with a game-time set for 6 p.m.
