CORAL GABLES, Fla. – For the first time in program history, the Gators’ women soccer team opened their season with three straight shutouts, following a 0-0 draw against the Miami Hurricanes Thursday.

In the 48th minute, the game was delayed an hour and a half due to lightning, and the Gators pushed hard to score the game winner after the delay.

Florida dominated on offense but just couldn’t find the net, out-shooting the Hurricanes 14-1. In the 67th minute, a header from Madison Young went in the net, but the officials determined the ball deflected off a Gator before going in and waved off the goal for offsides.

The Gators’ defense turned in a dominant performance once again, allowing only one shot in the game. Goalkeeper Alexa Goldberg recorded her third clean-sheet in a row.

The Gators are back at home this Sunday, August 27, against the Stetson University Hatters. Kick-off is slated for 6 p.m.
