Kansas Wesleyan and Friends played 110 minutes of scoreless soccer on Saturday evening at the Graves Family Sports Complex.

It was the second draw of the season for the Coyotes, who went to 9-4-2 overall and 6-1-2 in the Kansas Conference.

The Coyotes had good looks at goals in the first half as Maleia Jackson (FR/Belton, Mo.) barely missed a header in the 14th minute and Ava Delgado (FR/Redlands, Calif.) came up unlucky in the 44th minute.

Lissette Garcia (SR/Bakersfield, Calif.) narrowly missed a chance at a goal in the 62nd minute. The Coyotes nearly had the match winner in the 89th minute but a shot by Tyler Goodwin (SR/Covina, Calif.) was blocked and a follow by Jackson was saved to send the match to extra time.

The Coyotes had a couple good looks in the first overtime period but could not convert and another try by Goodwin in the waning moments of the second extra period missed high.

KWU outshot Friends 16-7 in the match led by three from Quintanilla. Allison Blumenthal (SO/Temecula, Calif.) had a save in the first half and Daisy Bingham (SR/Huntington Beach, Calif.) had two in the second half and overtimes.

The Coyotes are back on the road on Wednesday at Southwestern, before closing out the regular season with two home matches, against McPherson next Saturday and a make-up against Ottawa on Nov. 2.
