The Massachusetts women’s soccer team has yet to score a goal through two games of the 2015 season, but it saw better results Sunday afternoon against New Hampshire in a scoreless draw.
Coming off a 6-0 season-opening loss to Syracuse Friday, the Minutewomen (0-1-1) returned to action Sunday in Durham, New Hampshire and battled the Wildcats to a 0-0 tie through two overtimes.
While UNH held the advantage in shots (13-12), UMass saw more quality chances with more shots on goals (9-3) through the 110 minutes of action. However, Wildcats goalie Mimi Borkan held the Minutewomen scoreless with nine saves.
Borkan’s counterpart in net, UMass’ Cassidy Babin also pitched a shutout despite only having to make three saves. It was the sophomore’s first start of the season, after Danielle Kriscenski got the starting call Friday against the Orange.
UMass continues its pursuit of its first victory of 2015 next Sunday against Rutgers in New Jersey.
