Walker Shines In Scoreless Tie With Harvard
Oct. 4, 2003
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Sarah Walker made 11 saves, including three in overtime, as Yale played a scoreless tie with Harvard in an Ivy League women's soccer game. The Crimson (3-3-3, 1-0-1 Ivy) outshot the Bulldogs 6-0 in the two, 10-minutes overtimes, but Walker was sharp in goal. She made a diving save on a shot by Katie Westfall midway through the first overtime to keep the game scoreless.
"Sarah was our MVP," said Yale head coach Rudy Meredith. "She was very good. This was our best game this season in terms of effort."
Katie Shields made four saves to post the shutout in goal for the Crimson.
Harvard controlled play for most of the first half, outshooting the Bulldogs 7-3. Yale (4-4-1, 0-1-1 Ivy) picked ups its play in the second half and had a few scoring opportunities.
The Bulldogs are back in action on Wednesday night when they host Quinnipiac at 7 p.m. at the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium.
