Kansas draws at No. 14 Texas Tech, 0-0
LUBBOCK, Texas – More than 100 minutes was not enough to separate the Kansas Jayhawks and No. 14 Texas Tech Red Raiders as the two squads played to a 0-0 draw Sunday afternoon at John Walker Soccer Complex. Junior midfielder Ceri Holland led the squad with six shots, while sophomore goalkeeper Sarah Peters tallied four saves, one coming on a TTU penalty kick, en route to her sixth shutout of the year.

Both sides saw a handful of chances throughout the 110-minute match, but both goalkeepers made impressive plays to keep the back of their nets clean. The Red Raiders’ best look in regulation came with four minutes remaining in the first half. After the Jayhawks were whistled for a foul in their own box, TTU’s Hannah Anderson lined up the penalty kick try but was denied by Peters to keep the game scoreless at the intermission.
Kansas nearly netted the game’s first goal several times over the final 45 minutes of regulation and overtime. The Jayhawks forced TTU goalkeeper, Madison White into four second-half saves but were unable to break the Red Raider defense.
The two sides managed three shots apiece in the two 10-minute overtime periods but no golden goals were in the cards as KU and TTU settled for a scoreless draw. The Red Raiders ended the match outshooting the Jayhawks 14-11, however Kansas was able to put seven of its shots on target, compared to just four for the home team.
