GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College’s Cheyenne Grim and the Quakers’ defense totaled the team’s fifth shut-out of the season as the Quakers and Emory and Henry College played to a Wednesday evening Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) draw, 0-0/

Both sides produced close offensive opportunities in the first ten minutes with the Quakers (6-7-1, 3-5-1 ODAC) producing a quick burst in the first three minutes. Susan Dillinger and Kelsey Reilly produced a burst of two shots in the third minute as Emory & Henry goalie Kieran Liseski held the Quakers off. Emory & Henry countered in the eighth and tenth minutes with two tests of Grim, but Grim saved both shots and produced her third save on Emory & Henry’s third-consecutive shot in the 16th minute. Guilford pressed the Wasps with three corner-kick chances in the final ten minutes. Lauren Culler (Greensboro, N.C./Ragsdale) produced an offensive chance in the 40th minute off the second corner kick, where she beat defenders on the near post, forcing Liseki to make a quick save.

Guilford dominated possession for the first 30 minutes of the second half as they claimed the first seven shots of the period. The Quakers held an 8-1 advantage on shots in the second half. Culler produced another near-post opportunity in the 73rd minute where she beat a defender left, but Liseki made the save.

Guilford’s best chance in overtime came in the 96th minute as the Quakers pressed to the top of the six-yard box where Morgan Sleeth and Ana Fokas each produced close shots at the net, but Liseki stopped each shot. After two long Allison Van Voorhies shots in the latter portion of the second overtime, both sides remained deadlocked.
