Final Stats

SAN FRANCISCO - Boise State women’s soccer concluded its nonconference schedule with a 0-0 draw Sunday, at San Francisco. The Broncos (2-4-3) played into double overtime for a school-record fifth-consecutive match. Janelle Flores posted her second shutout of the season, making three saves behind a defense that allowed the Dons (6-2-3) to take just nine shots.

Boise State saw its best chances in the final minutes of the first and second halves with Brooke Heidemann at the center of the action. Heidemann created the Broncos’ first scoring opportunity in the 41st minute. She danced through defenders from midfield to the left side of the penalty box before leaving a pass at the feet of Hannah Smith 10 yards out from the goal. Smith swung for a one-timer, but pushed the shot high.

Eva Herrera put a shot on goal from distance in the final minute of the first half. It was the first shot on target for either team. USF had a shot hit the post in the 17th minute.

The Broncos sustained an early onslaught by the Dons in the second half. USF took five shots between the 54th and 62nd minutes. Flores recorded all three of her saves in the stretch and the other two shots were blocked by Boise State’s back line.

Neither side threatened until Boise State mounted a late charge. The Broncos put four shots on goal in the final 15 minutes of regulation, including two from Heidemann. Boise State also had five corner kicks in the same period. In the 87th minute Baylee Blaser dished to Heidemann on the right side of the box. The senior rocketed a shot toward the net, but Madalyn Schiffel was there to make the save. Schiffel was also there to stop Heidemann’s chance in the 89th minute after the Bronco midfielder weaved through USF’s back line and fired from 12 yards.

Neither team offered much of a challenge in the overtime periods. The Dons attempted one shot and kept Boise State from getting an attempt.

The Broncos begin Mountain West play next weekend with a pair of home matches. Three-time defending champion San Diego State comes to town for the conference opener Friday, before Boise State hosts New Mexico Sunday, at Boas Soccer Complex.
