No. 3 Saint Rose draws at No. 6 AIC

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- Two of the country's top-10 teams played to a 0-0 double-overtime draw Tuesday as neither No. 3 Saint Rose nor host No. 6 American International could come up with a goal in a key Northeast-10 Conference match that was played before 1,118 fans.

The third-ranked Golden Knights (9-0-1/6-0-1 NE-10) managed to remain one of only two teams, men or women at either the NCAA I, II, or III levels, to not allow a goal this year. The other, NCAA II Grand Valley State's women's team, is in action tomorrow.

As for Tuesday, the Yellow Jackets (9-0-1/7-0-1 NE), ranked third in the country this week, manufactured a 20-9 shot advantage. American International also generated seven more corner kicks, including a 6-0 advantage in the first period.

Sophomore midfielder Jennifer Busk directed three shots-on-goal and junior midfielder Emily Benjamin manufactured a pair for Saint Rose (9-0-1/6-0-1 NE-10). Meanwhile, senior keeper Jessica Gerski made five of her season-high nine saves in the first period to ward off an early American International offensive.

At the other end, junior keeper Sam Tabak recorded five saves throughout the evening to keep her clean sheet in place.
