Jayhawks tie Huskers

October 1, 2005


— Sophomore goalkeeper Colleen Quinn made five saves and recorded her fourth shutout of the season, and Kansas University's soccer squad battled to a 0-0 tie Friday with No. 25 Nebraska.

The Jayhawks (5-4-2 overall, 1-1-1 Big 12 Conference) outshot the Huskers, 25-14, including 5-2 in overtime, but couldn't score past NU keeper Jamie Klages, who recorded nine saves. It was KU's third overtime match this season and Nebraska's first since Sept. 12, 2003 - a string of 49 matches.

"On the road in the conference against a good team we should probably be happy with (a tie) but we are a little disappointed because we definitely had the better chances in the game," KU coach Mark Francis said. "We played very well, especially in the second half and overtime period. The girls are definitely getting there."

The Jayhawks had two scoring chances in the first half just 31 seconds apart. First, senior Kimberly Karfonta, making her first career start, booted a shot off a corner kick that sailed over the crossbar, then senior Caroline Smith sent a sliding kick off the left post.

The Jayhawks will travel Sunday to Iowa State. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
