The Case Western Reserve University women's soccer team kept its unbeaten record intact on Sunday, playing to a 1-1 tie in double-overtime against the Hiram College Terriers in Hiram, Ohio.

The draw brings the Spartans 2016 ledger to 1-0-1, while the Terriers now stand at 1-0-1 for the campaign.

Hiram took an early lead in the match on an unassisted goal by Katelyn Mauch. Mauch struck in the 9th minute of action, putting the Terriers up front 1-0.

The lead would hold through the rest of the half, but CWRU would even the score in the second frame on a 56th-minute goal from freshman forward Kimberly Chen, unassisted.

Both defenses would hold strong for the rest of regulation and both overtime periods, as the match ended in a tie.

The Spartans finished the game with a 10-2 advantage in shots on goal. Chen and senior midfielder Amy Lindberg each led the squad with five shots apiece, while senior forward Pauline Van Dijck two shots on goal were a team-high.

Junior goalkeeper Sarah Newcomb went the distance for the Spartans in net, making one save.
