The Georgetown University women's soccer team took an early lead in the first half, but settled for a 1-1 tie against No. 22 West Virginia on. Friday night in Morgantown, W.Va.
The Hoyas bounced back from two-straight losses with an important tie on the road and are now 3-2-2 overall while WVU is now 4-2-1.
The Hoyas took a 1-0 lead in the 24th minute when senior forward Vanessa Skrumbis took a feed from senior Jessica Clinton and took a blast from 22 yards out.
WVU tied the game in the 27th minute and the game went tied through regulation.
"The girls really gritted out a result tonight in a tough environment," Head Coach Dave Nolan said. "Vanessa (Skrumbis) scored a great goal to give us the lead but they did have us under some pressure and tied the game quickly. However the team dug deep and despite losing two of our starting defenders early through injury we had people step up which was great to see."
WVU had chances in overtime but senior goalkeeper Emma Newins finished with 12 saves.
"Both teams had good chances in OT and maybe when all is said and done a draw was a fair result," Nolan said. "This finishes a tough stretch of road games for us and we are excited to have the next two at home on Shaw field."
Georgetown is back home on Sunday, Sept. 14, hosting George Washington at 4 p.m. at Shaw Field.
