Girls Soccer: Zip-Zip

Farmington and Owatonna battled each other and the steamy weather for 90 minutes Saturday afternoon at Tiger Stadium but neither team went home a winner after a scoreless overtime tie.

It was the second time this season the Tigers have been involved in a no-goal game. They forged a 0-0 draw with Lakeville South in the third game of the year.

"We outplayed them, held possession and dominated in their back 30 but just couldn't find the energy to put the goals away," coach Tracie Randall said. "We have been practicing diligently on our offensive attack and getting support two our two players on top.

"I am still playing around with the idea of playing with three up top and four in the middle to create some more goal scoring opportunities...A tie isn't a loss, and overall, I think in terms of possession and shots on goal we won in our own rights."

Dani Wright started her third game in a row in goal and posted her second shutout. Starter Ashley Becker is expected back from a shoulder injury later this week.

The Tigers (3-1-2) open their Missota Conference season Thursday when they entertain Northfield at Tiger Stadium.
