Scots, Lions Settle for Tie

Maya McDonald prepares a kick during Wooster's 1-1 tie Wednesday.

WOOSTER, Ohio -- Two teams entered with the same undefeated record and left the same as The College of Wooster women's soccer team and Mount St. Joseph University played to a 1-1 tie on Wednesday.

Senior Erica White started quickly with a goal just 11 seconds into the game for her third of the season. After kickoff she intercepted a pass and fired a strike from about 20 yards out to score. 

It was the fastest score to start a game for the Scots since 2001 when Liz Martin did the feat in 33 seconds against Case Western Reserve University.

Unfortunately, the scoring stopped there for Wooster. Mount St. Joseph's Stefanie Autenrieb hit the equalizer early in the second half in the 46th minute off an assist from Jodie Weimer. Weimer sent the ball to the center off a corner kick, and Autenrieb headed it in.

Neither team could score after that. Both had plenty of opportunities as Wooster took 16 shots and Mount St. Joseph took 15. The Lions had nine corners to Wooster's four.

Molly Hutter and Maddy Ireton again split time in net for the Scots. Hutter made two saves for a scoreless first half. Ireton made three saves after playing the second half and both overtime periods.

Both teams are now 3-0-2 on the season. Wooster will get back in action Sunday when they travel to Kalamazoo.
