The Roanoke College women opened their soccer season with a 1-1 tie at Ferrum College on Sunday. The game went into double overtime but no one could break the tie.\
A minute and a half into the second period, the Roanoke attack finally broke through as Morgan O’Neill gave the Maroons a 1-0 lead. The Roanoke defense seemed poised to see the 1-0 lead hold up entering the stages of the second half. But with just over 10 minutes on the clock, Brady Hentz scored to tie the game on just Ferrum’s third shot of the afternoon.
RC would get three shots in the two overtime periods but none were on the mark. Ellie Schad recorded five of the Maroons 22 total shots.
Roanoke will travel to Virginia Beach next Sunday for a 2:00pm match with the Marlins.
