Women’s Soccer Earns a League Point After 0-0 Draw with Canisius

BUFFALO, NY – The Saint Peter's women's soccer team ended a three-game skid on Saturday afternoon, after a 0-0 draw with Canisius College in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) play. With the draw the Peacocks earn one more league point giving the team four points on the season, the most points for the program since the 2011 season when that squad earned six points.

 

"The game was a very even contest in terms of stats, and although we are disappointed we didn't nick the win, a draw is probably a fair result on reflection," said head coach Melissa Sherwood. "The fact we are disappointed we didn't get our second win in conference today just shows the change in mentality within our program."

 

Freshman goalkeeper, Victoria Scarratt recorded her third career shutout and second coming in the MAAC with the 0-0 outcome. Scarratt made seven saves in goal, helping to preserve the shutout. Three Peacocks recorded three shots, led by Barbara Paiva, Carlee Gonzalez, and Isabel Fernandez. Kelsey Nugent also added two shots to the box score for the Peacocks. The match was very close in all statistical categories. The Peacocks were at a disadvantage in shots, 21-17, but the Peacocks made more saves compiling seven to Canisius' five.

 

"Victoria Scarratt made two or three really crucial saves today to keep us in the game," added Sherwood. "Her contribution as a freshman has been outstanding and she deserves her clean sheet today."

 

The Peacocks close out the road portion of their schedule on Wednesday, October 18 at Iona. Kick-of is set for 4pm.
