HOBOKEN, N.J. (Sept. 11, 2022) – The Stevens Institute of Technology women’s soccer team fought to a scoreless 0-0 tie against New York University at home on Sunday afternoon. It was the Ducks’ second and final game of the 18th Annual Engineering Cup. Junior goalkeeper Dana Perry finished the game with four saves.
NYU put some pressure on Stevens to start the first half. Perry made a save on a shot from the Violets five minutes into the game and the two sides settled into the game after that. The Ducks’ backline stood strong in the first 45 minutes and Stevens went into halftime tied 0-0 despite the NYU offense getting off five shots and earning two corners.
The second half went similarly to the first. Although, the Ducks were able to up the offensive pressure in the second stanza of the game and fired off three shots and earned three corner kick opportunities. Despite strong efforts from both sides, both Stevens and NYU were unable to find the back of net and the game ended in a 0-0 tie.
After the draw, Stevens moved to 1-1-3 on the season and the Violets improved to 1-0-3. The Ducks are unbeaten in their last four games. Graduate student Fiona Matthews was named the Engineering Cup Defensive Most Valuable Player.
