GRANVILLE, Ohio -- Denison women's soccer played to a 0-0 draw with Kenyon College on Saturday afternoon at Barclay-Thomsen Field in Granville as a part of Big Red Weekend on campus.

Outshooting the Ladies 26-10 for the match, the Big Red used their 11-6 shot advantage during the first half to tally three of the first five shots on the day, including a shot off a free kick from sophomore Kate Dannemiller that missed wide left of the goal at the 7:13 mark.

Denison received another opportunity in the 17th minute when Emma Phinney booted a shot from 45 yards out that was bobbled by Kenyon's goalie Jillian Countey, but eventually saved to keep the game tied at 0-0.

Looking to take the lead with four seconds remaining in the half, Abby King missed wide right to enter intermission with a scoreless effort.

Also dominating the shot ratio during the second half, 10-2, DU added three of the first four shots to open the half, including a shot from Maggie Armstrong that sailed just high over the crossbar.

In the 75th minute, the Big Red looked to find the net when Kelly O'Neill sent a cross inside the goal box to Riley Hammond, but the tip-in shot went just wide of the goal as both sides ended regulation in a scoreless tie.

Combining to outshoot the Ladies 5-2 in both overtimes, it appeared that the Big Red broke through in the 109th minute when a shot from Armstrong went under the arms of Kenyon's Countey, but just inches wide left of the goal. The tie was DU's first of the season, resulting in a record of 6-2-1. Kenyon moved to 4-2-3.

The Big Red were led by four shots each from Hammond and O'Neill, including three shots from Sydney Ludes, Claire Kolff, King, and Armstrong. Ludes and O'Neill also finished with three shots on goal.

In goal, freshman Patil Tcholakian finished with five saves during 110 minutes of action, while KC's Countey tallied 11 saves in a full extra time effort.

The Big Red returns to action next Saturday, October 6 when they travel to Greencastle, Ind. for a 2:30 matchup with the Tigers of DePauw University.
