Hawai'i, Pacific tie 0-0 in soccer
Despite being outshot 14-6, the University of Hawai'i women's soccer team played undefeated Pacific to a scoreless tie after two overtimes yesterday in the Four Points Sheraton Cats Classic at Tucson, Ariz.
Kori Lu made four saves as the Rainbow Wahine (3-1-1) recorded their third consecutive shutout.
Jamie Souza had three saves as the Tigers (4-0-1) tied a school-record with their fifth straight shutout.
Each team had just one shot on goal in the first half and just five total at the end of regulation. Pacific stepped up the attack after intermission — generating nine corner kicks and numerous forays in the box — but the UH defense was up to the challenge.
Hawai'i had a couple scoring opportunities in the second half. Kelli-Anne Chang fired a shot from 10 yards out in the 67th minute, and Taryn Fukuroku had a similar opportunity five minutes into the first overtime, but Souza smothered both shots.
The Rainbow Wahine will play host Arizona tomorrow.
