AMES, Iowa –
TCU and Iowa State played to a 0-0 draw at Cyclone Sports Complex Friday night. Katie Lund
made five saves in registering her first career complete-game shutout.
TCU had some early good looks in the first half. Michelle Prokof
fired off four solid shots, but only one found its way on goal and Cyclone keeper, Lindsey Hendon was there to make the diving stop. Emma Heckendorn
had a good look in the 25th minute, but her shot just missed going in under the crossbar.
Lund had to be alert in goal as she was called upon to make a pair of stops in the first half. The best came in the 39th minute as she grabbed Emily Steil’s point-blank shot.
TCU’s best chance in the second half came just a minute in as Heckendorn once again had a solid look. Her header in tight was knocked out of danger, setting up a corner kick. Meghan Murphy’s header off the corner was stopped by Hendon.
The Frogs made a strong push in the first overtime, firing off three shots, two of which found their way on goal. Murphy once again tested Hendon with a header, but couldn’t sneak the shot past her. Iowa State’s lone shot of the first overtime just barely missed the upper corner in the 97th minute.
In the second overtime, both teams had good looks at the goal. TCU was fouled just outside the 18-yard box, but Prokof’s shot went right into the defensive wall. Iowa State turned the ball upfield and fired off a long shot that Lund had no problem corralling.
