LOS ANGELES — The Occidental women's soccer team played a quality Cal Lutheran side to a 0-0 draw at Jack Kemp Stadium on Wednesday.

It was the first SCIAC game for both teams.

Oxy's Katherine Kim had the game's best change to score in the 107th minute. Layla Devlin played her forward, she got in behind the CLU defense and fired a sliding right-footed shot with the Cal Lutheran goalie charging. Her shot beat the keeper, but went off the right post, just inches away from securing three points. 

Cal Lutheran's best chance came in the final minute of the game just moments later. Sam Comejo got the ball in a one-on-one opportunity up the right side of the field, cut it back inside and drilled a hard shot to the bottom right corner where Oxy keeper Sydney Tomlinson made the best of her seven saves, diving to her left to preserve the tie.

Cal Lu has been among the best teams in the SCIAC in women's soccer. Last season they won the SCIAC regular season and then advanced to the third round of the NCAA Division III tournament after earning an at-large bid. 

Season Impact: Oxy's record moves to 1-0-1 and 0-0-1 in SCIAC. 

Cal Lu is now 1-0-2 and 0-0-1 in SCIAC.

Next Game: The Tigers are back in action on Saturday playing their first SCIAC road game at Whittier at 7 p.m.
