LOS ANGELES — The Occidental women's soccer team tied Claremont-Mudd-Scripps in a hard-fought match at Jack Kemp Stadium on Saturday night.

Neither team could get the upper hand through 110 minutes of soccer.

The shots were nearly even with Occidental taking 11 and CMS taking 10.

Led by center backs Devoney Amberg and Karla Alas-Lopez, and fullbacks Isabella Bonomi, Tracy Watanabe and Caroline Kearney, Oxy's defense played well again, holding its seventh opponent scoreless this season. No team has scored on Oxy in its last four games and the Tigers have given up just two goals in eight games all season.

Oxy goalkeeper Sydney Tomlinson made four saves against the Athenas, but was kept mostly clean by the defenders in front of her.

Nicole Castro also continued her solid work as a holding and attacking midfielder for Oxy.  

Season Impact: Oxy earns one point, moving to 4-0-3 in SCIAC and 5-0-3 overall. The Tigers sit in third place, just one point back of first.

CMS goes to 4-2-1 in SCIAC and 6-3-1 overall.

Next Game: The Tigers are back in action at Pomona-Pitzer on Oct. 3 at 4 p.m.
