Oct. 1, 2003

Box Score

The Bulldogs posted their fourth shutout on the season, but the team's offensive woes continued as the team played to a 0-0 tie at IPFW. The tie brings the Bulldogs' record to 4-5-2 on the season (0-2 in the Horizon League), while the Mastadons now sit at 3-4-2.

Junior Katie Sanders went all 110 minutes in net, making ten saves and dropping her Horizon League-leading goals against average to 0.85. The Bulldogs have been shutout in three of their last four matches.

"We played great today," said coach Woody Sherwood. "It's been no different than in the last five or six matches. We gave our forwards some great chances today, but they didn't get the job done. We'll see if we can get things corrected offensively Saturday at Youngstown State."

The Bulldogs outshot the home team, 29-19, including a 14-10 shots on goal advantage. Senior Annie Doerr led the team with seven shots, while senior Amy Pike put all four of her shots on goal. Rachel Poor went the distance in net for the Mastadons, making 14 saves on the night, including five saves in the two 10-minute overtime periods. Alyssa Bailey led IPFW with seven shots on the night.

The Bulldogs return to Horizon League action Saturday at Youngstown State (1-9, 0-1). The match begins at noon. The Bulldogs have beaten the Penguins in all four matches between the teams, including a 7-0 triumph in 2002.
