Auburn soccer was handed its first draw of the season late Thursday night in Baton Rouge against LSU. The Tigers are still the only team in the Southeastern Conference without a loss on the season.
“Honestly, we let one get away tonight,” head coach Karen Hoppa said. “We certainly had the opportunities and I thought we lacked a bit of composure, got away from our game plan and are leaving here a little disappointed.”
Auburn managed to get 11 shots on LSU’s goal, but the stellar play from Caroline Brockmeier kept the orange and blue Tigers from getting on the board. Late in the game, Auburn had two chances to take the lead with shots in front of the goal only to both be thwarted by Brockmeier.
Even in extra time for the first time this season, the usually explosive Auburn offense couldn’t muster a point resulting in a tie. However, the story of the game was their defense.
This was Auburn's seventh shutout of the year and the fifth for goalkeeper Sarah Le Beau. Since SEC play began, two games ago, Auburn has yet to allow a goal.
“Getting a shutout on the road in this league is really hard to do, so that’s a great positive,” Hoppa said.
Auburn looks to regroup after its first scoreless match of the season before Ole Miss comes to The Plains this Sunday.
