TUCSON, Ariz. - Two days after surrendering a trio of goals, the Lions clamped down on defense, earning their fourth shutout of the season. But the offense was also shut out as the LMU women's soccer team settled for a 0-0 double-overtime draw against host Arizona in the final game of the Arizona Cats Classic in Tucson.
Brittany Jagger had another strong performance for the Lions, making five saves in her fourth shutout of the year and 19th of her three-plus year career. It was just the second time Arizona had been held scoreless in 2012, the other shutout coming in a 1-0, season-opening loss to WCC member BYU.
The Wildcats (4-3-1) held a slight 18-15 edge in shots and each team managed to earn just one corner kick for the balance of the game.
After finding the back of the net at least once in each of their first eight games, the Lions were held scoreless through two games in Tucson.
LMU takes a 14-day break from competition, returning to the pitch on Sept. 30 when they host Utah Valley at 1 p.m. on Sullivan Field. The game against the Wolverines marks the conclusion of the Lions non-conference schedule they kick off WCC play Oct. 7 versus San Diego.
