BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Kendra Clarke tallied a career-high six saves and earned her second shutout of the year to keep Georgia State’s unbeaten streak alive, as the Panthers played to a 0-0 draw in double overtime against UAB Saturday night at BBVA Compass Field.
The tie was the first of the season for GSU, moving the blue and white to 3-0-1 in its last four matches and 3-2-1 overall. UAB picked up its third draw of the season to put the Blazers at 1-2-3 on the year. Saturday night also snapped UAB’s three match win-streak against the Panthers.
Neither team was able to generate much offense in the first 45 minutes, as GSU headed to the break without a shot attempt and UAB had just one. The Blazers led 4-2 in corner kicks and controlled most of the possession but couldn’t capitalize for the go-ahead score.
UAB came out firing with seven shots in the second half, but Clarke and the Georgia State back line contained the Blazer attack and kept the score deadlocked at zero to force overtime. In the two 10-minute overtime periods, UAB took three shots but was unable to break the tie.
Brooke Shank launched the only shot of the night for the Panthers in the 80th minute.
Georgia State returns to action 7 p.m. Friday against Mercer in Macon, Ga.
