ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – The St. Bonaventure women's soccer team played to a 0-0 draw against UMass-Lowell at Marra Athletic Complex Thursday afternoon, earning the Bonnies their first draw of the season.

Bonnies sophomore goalkeeper Lauren Malcolm made four saves, including one on a point-blank shot in the second overtime period, to record her first shutout of the year.

St. Bonaventure generated offense throughout the game, firing 12 shots. UMass-Lowell keeper Julia Schneider was credited with five saves.

The Bonnies had plenty of opportunities to score early in the game, but could not find the back of the net. Bella May fired a shot in the 19th minute that went just wide of the goal.

Not long after, sophomore Sydney Cerza played a ball into May in the 34th minute but the shot was stopped by Schneider, leaving the game still scoreless.

The second half was more of the same. The Bonnies came out firing early when May linked up with Brittany Tubiolo off a corner kick in the 48th minute. The ball fell to Cerza, but was corralled by Schneider.

Sabrina Sousa-Sampson created a good chance when she found herself in the center of the box when she went on a partial breakaway in the 70th minute, but her shot was wide. In the 84th minute, Bella May had the best look of the game when she blasted a shot that ricocheted off the cross bar and straight down but never crossed the goal line.

Malcom made a game-saving stop off of a UMass-Lowell free kick in the 107th minute to secure the draw for the Bonnies.

The Bonnies' record moved to 0-5-1, while UMass-Lowell is now 2-1-3.  St. Bonaventure's next game is this Sunday, Sept. 10, at Canisius.
