The Lady Lions ended Friday unbeaten and unscored on.  The first match of the year took 110 minutes to finish and ended in a tie.  The Lady Lions finished the 2 overtime match in a 0-0 tie versus the Randall University Saints to become 0-0-1 on the year.

SAGU statistically dominated the game from the beginning outshooting Randall University 48-4 in the match.  It was the second half of the match before Randall tallied a shot in the scorebook.  SAGU goalie, Sarah Palmer, (Jr. – Grapevine, Texas) was called upon to make only three saves on the day.  Randall University, playing with 11 players for the match, packed their defense into the 18 yard box and waited for SAGU to attack.  Randall University goalie, Madi Harris, had an incredible 27 saves during the match.

SAGU Coach Paul Hason was frustrated with not coming away with a win but remained positive with the work ethic displayed by the Lady Lions.  “We dominated the whole match but, to Randall University’s credit, we could not put the ball in the back of the net”, stated Hason.

The Lady Lions resume their season at home on Tuesday, August 21, against Paul Quinn College from Dallas, Texas. The match will have a 4:00 start on the campus of SAGU.
