JAMAICA, N.Y.  –  The Dartmouth women’s soccer team finished with a season-high 14 shots on goal, but a red-hot St. John’s netminder kept the game scoreless 0-0 (2 OT) at Belson Stadium on Friday evening.

Dartmouth (1-3-1) had many opportunities in the 110 minutes on the pitch, peppering Red Storm (6-1-1) keeper Diana Poulin. The visiting Big Green finished the first half with 12 shots on goal, including close shots by seniors Chrissy Lozier, Emma Brush and sophomore Jackie Friedman. Friedman had the best chance to score in the 40th minute on a free kick just outside the box that dinged off the post.

Brush finished the game with a team-high four shots on goal, with Friedman adding three. Junior Tatiana Saunders made eight saves in the game and faced four shots from SJU leading scorer Rachel Daly.

In the second half, SJU held possession for most of the period and in the 83rd minute the Red Storm had a goal called off due to offsides. In the overtime periods, St. John’s held a 7-3 advantage in shots, with Daly taking the only shot on target.

Dartmouth will head back home to take on Maine on Sunday at 1 pm from Burnham Field.
