ULM women's soccer earns draw vs. SLU

AMMOND, La - The University of Louisiana Monroe battled Southeastern Louisiana to a 1-1 tie in double overtime Sunday, Sept. 10.

Late in the first half, ULM took a 1-0 lead when freshman midfielder Alexis Cherry found the back of the net from inside the box in the 42nd minute, off a cross from the left side by freshman Rahel Zerazion.

The SLU offense came alive in the 62nd minute, as junior defender Christina Cutura dribbled into the box and passed the ball to junior midfielder Maggie Ramsey, who scored the equalizer.

The Warhawks controlled play for most of the overtime sessions, outshooting the Lady Lions, 6-1.

ULM out-shot SLU, 12-11, in the match (9-5 in shots on goal).

ULM had two scoring opportunities in the first overtime, but senior midfielder Danielle Sabathe and Cherry both fired shots wide of the net, while SLU's Cutura headed a corner from Ramsey high above the goal in the 96th minute.

Lady Lion freshman goalkeeper Michaela Hawthorn recorded four saves in the second overtime, stopping shots by sophomore defender Alexiss Trudeau, Sabathe, Cherry and senior defender Danielle LaFrance. Hawthorn finished the match with eight saves.

ULM junior goalkeeper Brooke-Lynn Scroggins made four saves, with all coming in the first half.

"We made some adjustments in the second half, but our players battled hard for 110 minutes and we were able to get a point on the road," ULM head coach Keyton Wheelock said.

"(Alexis) Cherry is coming back from an injury, and she had a fantastic game (team-high three shots, including two on goal). She made an impact not only going forward, but her work rate defensively was quality."

The Warhawks (0-7-1) open Sun Belt Conference play on the road at Troy Friday, Sept. 15, with kickoff set for 7 p.m. CT.
