Cal Ties Washington State, 0-0, in Double OT
Oct. 31, 2003
BERKELEY, Calif. - California's offensive struggles continued as the Golden Bears tied Washington State, 0-0, in double overtime Friday afternoon under chilly conditions at Edwards Stadium. The Bears are now 7-6-4 overall and 2-4-1 in the Pac-10, while the Cougars are 5-9-2 overall and 1-3-2 in league play.
'We played well today,' said Cal head coach Kevin Boyd. 'We had too many sitters that we didn't put away. When you don't, you often end up in a 0-0 tie. I was impressed with our team's overall effort.'
Cal outshot Washington State, 13-11, and had more dangerous chances. One of the Bears' best opportunities to score in regulation came in the 31st minute when Dania Cabello passed the ball to Alivia Mazura, who found Kassie Doubrava open in WSU's six-yard box. Doubrava's shot, however, went over the cross bar.
In overtime, the Bears held a 5-4 shot advantage, and WSU's goalkeeper Sara Leibowitz had to come up with two saves on shots by Tracy Hamm and one by Lucy Brining to preserve the shutout. Cal's freshman goalkeeper Anna Key had a strong outing, posting four saves - three in overtime -- to give the Bears their seventh shutout of 2003, one more than last season.
Despite the scoreless tie, Cal played aggressively, holding a 7-3 advantage for corner kicks and a 7-1 edge in offsides calls.
Seven Cal seniors play their final game at Edwards Stadium on Sunday at 1 p.m. when the Bears battle No. 13 Washington.
