Boston, Mass. - Senior tri-captain goalkeeper Julia Pitino (Littleton, Mass.) made one save in the 67th minute and another in the first overtime, as the visiting Trinity College Bantams tied the Emerson College Lions, 0-0, in women's soccer action this evening at Rotch Field.  Trinity ends a two-game losing skid despite extending its scoreless streak to 327 minutes.  Both teams are now 1-4-1.  Trinity visits New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) rival Bates on Saturday.  Trinity outshot Emerson, 14-to-2, in regulation but the teams both took two shots over two 10-minute overtimes and the Lions were the only team with a shot on goal after the 56th minute.  First-year forward Samantha March (Glastonbury, Conn.) got off a game-high six shots.

Trinity's closest opportunities to break the scoreless tie came first in the 62nd minute and the 75th minute, as first-year Amelia Kroschwitz (Byfield, Mass.) shot just past the left post and a free kick by sophomore back Rhone O'Hara (Woodstock, Conn.) skimmed just above the fingertips of Emerson senior goalkeeper Lauren Gartelman (Hamburg, N.Y.).  With 25 ticks on the clock, Lion junior Paige Haley (San Diego, Calif.) broke away down the right wing, but her shot ended up outside the right post.  In the second overtime, the Bantams could not capitalize on two corner kick opportunities and a shot that just went wide by sophomore midfielder Tricia Pollock (Beverly, Mass.) in the 107th minute.
