UNH Women's Soccer settles for 1-1 tie with PC
HAMPTON, N.H. --The University of New Hampshire women's soccer team controlled the final 75 minutes of play but couldn't break the tie with Providence College and settled for a 1-1 overtime tie Friday night at Winnacunnet High School.
UNH (1-0-1) trailed 1-0 in the first half when sophomore Nicole Coupland (Londonderry, N.H.) netted her second goal of the season to tie the game at 36:52. Senior Lisa Celone (Cornwall, Ontario) gained control of the ball outside of the box and touched the ball to to the left. Coupland fired a low shot past PC keeper Shayna Ross (15 saves) and inside the far post.
After a shaky start to the second half, the Wildcats gained control and didn't let go. UNH, which outshot its guests 16-6 overall and also had an 11-2 corners advantage, had a 6-0 shot advantage in the second half. The 'Cats continued to generate numerous scoring threats in the two 15-minute overtime sessions, where Ross was saved by her defenders on two occasions.
The Friars (1-0-1) took a 1-0 lead at 22:39 when Melissa Crowley's shot from 25 yards hit the underside of the crossbar and went into the net.
UNH junior goalkeeper Lorien Snellings (Ridgefield, Conn.) made five saves to keep the Wildcats unbeaten in 1997.
