MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Marlena Hartman-Filson (Sr./Evergreen Colo./Colorado Academy) gave the Carleton College women’s soccer team an early lead, but the Knights had to settle for a 1-1 tie in a conference matchup at Augsburg College. The Knights did extend their unbeaten streak to five matches.
Adhering to the motto, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take,” the two teams combined for a whopping 45 shots over regulation and two overtime periods. Mikayla Coulombe (Fy./Crystal, Minn./Benilde-St. Margaret’s) registered a season-best 11 saves for Carleton.
Hartman-Filson’s score in the sixth minute looked like it might be enough, but Devon Ellena’s long shot underneath the crossbar knotted the score shortly before halftime. That snapped Coulombe’s streak of 433:17 without surrendering a goal. Still, the Carleton defense has yielded only 7 goals in the 12 matches so far this season.
Carleton’s Megan King (Fy./Corvallis, Ore./Corvallis) nearly untied things when her 82nd minute attempt hit the crossbar. The Knights did benefit from a similar situation in the second overtime period when the Auggies Olivia Muyres had her shot deflect off the piping.
Carleton plays two more home matches this next week before finishing the regular season with a trio of road contests. The Knights welcome Saint Mary’s University on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 4 p.m. and Hamline University on Saturday, Oct. 13 at 1 p.m. Live video of both matches will be available on Knights Online.
