FORT MYERS, Fla. - Florida Atlantic University's women's soccer team battled Davidson to a scoreless draw on Sunday at the Embassy Suites Classic in Fort Myers, Fla. Sophomore Claire Emslie and junior Yazmin Ongtengco were named to the All-Tournament team for their efforts.
The Owls (0-3-1) outshot the Wildcats (0-3-1) 17 to 14 in the 110-minute contest. Senior goalkeeper Courtney Zwetsch made five saves on the day, including one in the 89th minute and second overtime en route to her first shutout of the season.
The FAU defense held strong behind the efforts of Ongtengco and Olivia Mbala, who each played all 110 minutes. The Owls allowed the Wildcats only one shot attempt in the entire 20 minutes of sudden-death play. A relentless attack in overtime by the FAU offense saw six shots, four of which came in the second overtime period. Sophomore Emslie took two of those as part of her five shots in the game. Taylor Sorrels, who scored Friday against Mississippi State, placed two of her three shots on goal.
Emslie, FAU's leading returning scorer, took six shots over FAU's two matches, placing two on goal.
The Owls' defense was led by Ongtengco, who played all 200 minutes of action. The junior from Whitby, Ontario, Canada also took a pair of shots in Friday's loss to Mississippi State.
FAU went 0-1-1 in the tournament and will host Miami on Sept. 8 at the FAU Soccer Stadium at 1 p.m.
