OREM, Utah – The No. 23 UCF women's soccer team recorded a 0-0 draw against Utah Valley on Thursday night at Clyde Field.
The Knights had four shots on goal, which was two more than the Wolverines.
While reigning American Athletic Goalkeeper of the Week, Caroline DeLisle only had to make two saves; the second one was another amazing stop. Diving full extension to her left, she preserved the 0-0 tie in the 62nd minute.
The redshirt senior has only allowed one goal in the first three games of the season.
The Knights looked to find the game-winner in the final 10 seconds with a few shots, but were not able to find the back of the net.
- The Knights have yet to trail this season. Two hundred and seventy minutes without trailing to start the season is the best since they went the first 350:19 minutes of the 2013 campaign without trailing.
- This is the first time UCF has had back-to-back draws since 2019 against Temple and UConn.
- Caroline DeLisle's two saves increase her season total to 12, and her save percentage to .923.
- It is also her 20th career shutout which moves her into sixth in program history, 4.5 behind fifth place.
Thoughts with Head Coach Tiffany Roberts Sahaydak
"We are competitors and wanted to win this game today so of course we aren't happy with the draw today," said Roberts Sahaydak. "Utah Valley is a very good team, and it was a hard-fought battle. It's not easy playing in the altitude, and our players worked through that challenge. To be a championship team we are going to have to experience hard moments like today. I believe our deep roster helped us massively. Excited to get back home and play in front of a home crowd this Sunday against FGCU."
The Knights return home to take on in-state foe FGCU on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the UCF Soccer Complex. They then travel north to Jacksonville for a Thursday matinee against UNF at 1 p.m.
