Hope Women's Soccer Settles For Scoreless Tie Against Alma

The Hope College women's soccer team played Alma to a scoreless draw on a wet and windy homecoming Saturday at Van Andel Soccer Stadium.

The Flying Dutch (14-1-2 overall) settled for a 0-0 tie despite outshooting their Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association foe by a 20-2 margin.

The teams played for 110 minutes, including two 10-minute overtime periods.

Sophomore goalie Mary Clare Theis of East Lansing, Michigan (Haslett HS), did not need to make a save for Hope's 11th shutout of the season.

Theis has recorded all 11 shutouts. She is third all-time in Flying Dutch history and trails only Holly Nestle, who had a school-record 15 shutouts in both 2005 and 2003. 

Hope is in second place in the MIAA standings with a 11-1-2 record. The Flying Dutch trail Calvin by two points in the league standings, but has played one more game than the Knights.
