Voet Picks Up League-Leading Sixth Shutout in Scoreless Draw
The Missouri State women's soccer team (6-6-2, 0-1-1) continued its defense dominance in a 0-0 double overtime draw against visiting Evansville


"We have been battling on the road," said head coach Rob Brewer. "We are going to have our hands full as Evansville is organized, has good talent and has been on a roll. It will be a game of matchups and will likely come down to who executes what they want to do better."

MSU is unbeaten in the last four matches and have come from behind in the last two victories. The Bears are 5-2-1 since September 6, including three road wins.

The last two matchups between the Bears and Purple Aces has been a defensive struggle. Both matches have gone to overtime and in the 200-plus minutes played, only one combined goal was scored.

Missouri State rallied from a first-half deficit for an overtime road win at Loyola on Saturday. Molly Brewer scored the game-winner in the 109th minute of play, the fourth-latest goal in program history.

Senior Shelby Stewart tied her career high, scoring her fourth goal of the season on Saturday against the Ramblers. Her goal knotted the match in the 61st minute of play. Molly Huber assisted on the goal, her fifth helper of the season. It was Huber's fourth-straight match with a point (1 G, 3 A).

 

 

Following Saturday's match, the Bears return home to face Drake on Friday, October 18 at Plaster Field. The 7:00 p.m. match has been designated the Bears' pink game this season.
