RECORDS: University of Minnesota (8-3-1, 1-2-1 Big Ten); Ohio State University (7-2-3, 1-1-2 Big Ten).

The University of Minnesota Golden Gopher women's soccer team and their Big Ten opponent, the Ohio State Buckeyes, ended a double overtime battle in a scoreless draw at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium on Friday night. 

Despite numerous scoring opportunities for both teams, neither were able to capitalize and put their team ahead during the 110 minute battle. The weather played a role in the draw as the wind blew at 15 miles per hour and rain fell for the majority of the match. 

The Gophers moved to 8-3-1 on the season going into their Sunday match against Penn State. In Big Ten play, the Gophers are 1-2-1.  

GOPHER STAND OUT PERFORMANCES

The match between the Buckeyes and the Gophers was a battle of the goalkeepers. Freshman Tarah Hobbs had another stand out game where she recorded seven saves for the Golden Gophers. Hobbs now has 48 saves on the season and has proved to be a vital part of the Gophers team in her first year. 

Senior Steph Brandt recorded two of the seven shots for the Golden Gophers on Friday evening. Each of her shots ended wide for the Gophers but she was able to create the opportunity during the match. 

WHAT IS NEXT:

The Gophers will play another game at home on Sunday afternoon as they take on No. 3 Penn State. The match on Sunday marks the annual "Rock the Robbie game" that allows attendees to enter the game for $1. The Gophers will try to tarnish the perfect Big Ten record for the Nittany Lions.
