GOSHEN, Ind. — Freshman goalkeeper Katie Baer tallied a career-high 11 saves amidst 33 Marian shot attempts Wednesday evening to allow the Goshen College women's soccer team to escape with a 1-1 tie at the John Ingold Athletic Complex.

Carolina Villalobos Palacios got things started early for the Leafs (3-7-2, 0-3-1 Crossroads League as she capitalized on an opportune free kick from the byline that slipped past Marian goaltender Catherine Schmidt at the 8-minute mark. The goal was Goshen's first in four games and the first from a non-goalie since Baer's 45-yard blast against Cornerstone University on September 16th.   

From then on, the game took on a video-game feel as the NAIA no. 15-ranked Knights (10-2-1, 3-0-1 CL) rattled off 33 shots, putting 15 on goal. GC was able to withstand the barrage until the 40th minute of the scheduled 90-minute affair as Marian's Mackenzie Hall converted on a seemingly lucky bounce six yards from goal. Hall's goal came on her only attempt of the contest. Of the seven Marian shot attempters, Hall was the only Knight to register just one try.

Marian's Maria Farmer led all players with 10 total shot attempts. Gaby Brocious and Chloe Ulmer added seven and six attempts respectively. Goshen's leading scorer, Taliah Borom, led all Leaf players with three attempts and two on goal. The Leafs attempted just eight total shots, seven of which were on target and six of which were saved by Schmidt.

With the game extended into two 10-minute overtime periods, the GC defense defended eight Marian attempts, none of which were on goal. The Knights tabbed 20 corner kicks in the match to Goshen's one.

The Goshen women will take to the field against a nationally-ranked foe once again on Saturday as they travel to Spring Arbor University. Action against the second-ranked team in the nation is set to begin at 7 p.m.

More, including comments from Goshen women's head coach Scott Gloden, to come when available.
