John Broadway, Staff Writer

The 23rd ranked LBSU women’s soccer team had a scoreless road trip in Los Angeles as they fell to LMU 1-0 in overtime on Friday and ended with a 0-0 draw against USC on Sunday.

The 49ers (4-2-2) entered the game against Loyola Marymount (5-2-0) having not allowed a goal since Aug. 28; 301 scoreless minutes of play by LBSU opponents. LMU outshot the 49ers 7-2 in the second half, but junior goalkeeper Ashton McKeown’s three saves managed to extend the scoreless streak to 391 minutes.

The streak ultimately came to an end when Lions forward Jill Farley scored the golden goal off a corner kick in the 98th minute, giving LBSU its first loss since Aug. 23.

The 49ers then played at USC (3-3-1) on Sunday. The Trojans managed to take 23 total shots in the game, but McKeown’s five saves kept USC off the board.

LBSU and USC ended regulation tied at zero, making it the 49ers’ fifth overtime game of the year. The two teams remained tied to end the game in a draw moving LBSU’s record to 1-2-2 in overtime matches.

The 49ers will head to Ohio next to take on Cincinnati on Thursday at 2 p.m. followed by a matchup with No. 24 DePaul on Sunday at 10 a.m. in Chicago, Illinois.
