Bonnies Earn A-10 Point in Scoreless Draw at Davidson

Bonnies Earn A-10 Point in Scoreless Draw at Davidson

DAVIDSON, N.C. – The St. Bonaventure women's soccer team weathered attacks from Davidson, coming away with its first point in Atlantic 10 competition following a scoreless draw through two overtimes Sunday afternoon.

St. Bonaventure now stands 4-6-1 and 0-2-1 in league play while Davidson, undefeated in seven consecutive matches, moves to 7-3-2, 2-0-1.

The Wildcats controlled much of regulation, recording 19 shots during the first 90 minutes, but the Bonnies defense was able to hold strong and keep the hosts off the board.

In overtime, Bona turned the tables a bit by holding possession for the majority of the opening minutes of extra time, but could not solve the riddle of the Wildcats defense. 

With seven minutes left in the second overtime, Davidson appeared to have a great chance for the winner following a low cross directly in front where Hailey Braemer fired a shot at keeper Lauren Malcolm who was able to deny the effort and save the game.

Malcolm preserved the game again as with just 45 seconds to go, she made a sprawling stop on a rocket right in front. The senior finished with 11 saves on the day as part of a stellar effort for her third shutout of the season and 11th of her career. With Sunday's game, Malcolm ties Karen Cunningham (1998-2001) for fourth all-time in Bonnies career shutouts. She also finished the afternoon with 433 career saves, passing Margaret Reif (1994-97, 427 saves) for third all-time in program history.

In all, Davidson tallied 24 shot attempts but could not find the back of the net.

Alex Thompson and Maddie Mason each played the full 110 minutes in the field for SBU.

Next up, the Bonnies host Dayton Thursday night at 7 p.m. on home turf at the Marra Athletics Complex.
