Boise State and UC Riverside Play to Scoreless Draw at Wyoming Cowgirl Classic...
Broncos tie record for draws in a season as they record their fourth straight.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (9/25/2009) - Boise State and UC Riverside’s soccer teams opened the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic by playing to a scoreless draw in Laramie Friday afternoon. It is the Broncos’ record fourth-consecutive draw as they increase their unbeaten streak to six matches, two victories followed by four ties. Prior to this year Boise State had never recorded back-to-back draws which now ties the school record for draws in a season. In today’s match Boise State out shot UC Riverside 16-to-nine overall and seven-to-five in shots on goal but the Broncos could not beat the Highlander keeper in 110 minutes of action as they improved to 4-3-4 overall on the 2009 campaign.

The game was tightly contested between these first-time opponents as neither wanted to see their unbeaten streaks come to an end.  The Broncos entered the match with a five-game unbeaten streak, while the Highlanders had a seven-match unbeaten streak on the line.

Boise State was led by a pair of freshmen in Lauren Hickok and Erica Parks who each placed two shots on goal during the contest. They were followed by Chelsea Robinson, Maureen Fitzgerald and Brandy Hickcox who all put one ball on target. Unfortunately, in each case they all failed to beat UCR’s Jessica White in goal.

Jennifer Burns got the start in goal for Boise State where she turned away five Highlander attempts, four in the first period and one in the final overtime, to preserve the draw for her side. In addition to recording her second shutout of the season Burns has now increased her season record to 2-0-3 and her Bronco career mark to 16-9-7.

UC Riverside goes to 5-2-3 on the year with the draw against Boise State. Next up for the Broncos is an 11:00 a.m. (Mountain) encounter with Gonzaga University Sunday morning in the third match of the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic.  Gonzaga (5-3-0) played host Wyoming in the second contest on Friday, the result was unknown when this article was posted.
