PITTSBURGH, Pa. – The George Washington women’s soccer team battled Duquesne to a 0-0 double overtime draw in Atlantic 10 action on Sunday afternoon at the Dukes’ Rooney Field.

Sophomore Kristi Abbate took a season-high nine shots for the Colonials, five of which she put on goal. Senior goalie Nicole Ulrick made seven stops to preserve GW’s fifth shutout of the season. 

The Dukes held a slight 18-17 advantage in shots while the Colonials put more than half of their attempts on target, forcing Duquesne keeper Ashley Szalwinski to make nine saves.

Jane Wallis had a good look for GW in the 45th minute when she took a free kick from 20 yards out that hit the bottom of the crossbar. In the 51st minute, Abbate fired three straight shots that were all punched out by a leaping Szalwinski.

GW (5-4-4, 2-2-1 A-10) outshot Duquesne (5-6-2, 1-2-1 A-10), 3-2, through two overtime periods. The final attempt of the contest came at 106:49 from junior defender Elizabeth Casey, but the Dukes’ Szalwinski made the save.

GW concludes its three-match road swing on Friday, Oct. 25 at nearby George Mason for the inaugural Revolutionary Rivalry match between the new A-10 foes. Kickoff in Fairfax, Va., is set for 7 p.m.
