HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – The Hofstra University women dominated and outshot Monmouth University, 27-5, but could not solve its defense in a scoreless draw at Hofstra Soccer Stadium Sunday.
The Pride (3-3-2) forced Hawks goalkeeper Amanda Knaub, who produced her fourth shutout, to make eight saves as Monmouth (3-2-2) extended its unbeaten streak to four games (3-0-1).
“This was one of our toughest weekends of the non-conference schedule,” Monmouth head coach Krissy Turner said. “To come out with a win at home and then a tie on the road shows great character. We are excited to begin play in the MAAC next week.”
Freshman Lucy Shepherd had arguably two of Hofstra’s best chances. In the second half, Knaub slid out to play the ball, but Shepherd got around her, sending her shot just wide of the empty net. Then, in overtime, Shepherd sent a rocket off the crossbar, just over the hands of Knaub. Senior Noriana Radwan also had a shot that sailed just high of the net.
Hofstra senior keeper Jenna Borresen made two saves in her second straight shutout.
The Pride plays at Stony Brook University Thursday at 7 p.m.
The Hawks open Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference when they visit Niagara University Saturday at 11 a.m.
