The Edinboro Fighting Scots women’s soccer team added another tie to their record on Oct. 4 when they traveled to Clarion, Pennsylvania to face the Golden Eagles.

Action started immediately with a foul called against Edinboro (in under five minutes) and shots taken by each team in the first six minutes. It wasn’t until another foul was called on Edinboro that Clarion got another shot and scored the first goal.

At the 14:58 mark in the first half of the game, senior midfielder McKenzie Sheesley of Clarion scored the first goal. This marker, unassisted, was Sheesley’s third of the season.

The remainder of the first period didn’t present any goals, but it did consist of six fouls (two Edinboro, four Clarion) and nine more shots (seven Edinboro, two Clarion). A yellow card was also handed to the sophomore midfielder of Clarion, Meliah Roman.

The majority of the second half was played without any goals. In this half, 11 fouls were called on Edinboro and four on Clarion. A total of 12 shots were taken between the two teams this half (eight Edinboro, four Clarion.) One goal was scored this half by Edinboro’s sophomore midfielder, Morgan Hamker, assisted by Ellie Frania and Ashley Mutkus (84:56).

In the first overtime, there were three fouls called on each team and two shots taken by Edinboro, but due to neither team scoring, the game went into a second overtime. In the second overtime, there was one shot taken by Edinboro’s Danielle Chatten that was blocked, leaving the game to end in a 1-1 tie.

This game brought Edinboro to a record of 3-4-3 and Clarion to a 5-3-3 mark in the PSACs. Edinboro will next travel to West Chester to face the Golden Rams on Oct. 13 and will return to Sox Harrison Stadium to face Mansfield on Oct. 15 at 1 p.m.
