With chance after chance in the second half, the St. Marys Roughriders girls' soccer team narrowly missed a chance at a win against one of the top teams in the league in Shawnee, ending in an empty 0-0 tie at Roughrider Field on Tuesday in a Western Buckeye League showedown.

 

No opportunity was closer for the Riders than the penalty kick that keeper Bailey Fenwick-Miller almost connected on with 2:02 left in regulation.

After a Shawnee defender was called for excessive contact on Sydney Cisco in the goal box, Fenwick-Miller came on for the penalty kick.

Between the foul call and Fenwick-Miller’s attempt, however, Indians’ keeper Nikole McPheron was hit with a yellow card after an official claimed she threw the ball at him when he asked for it, prompting a change at keeper prior to the PK.

With Arianna Gronas set to defend the goal, Fenwick-Miller shot the ball toward the net, but drilled the top of the crossbar instead, keeping the scoreless tie intact.



The sixth-ranked Roughriders in Division II doubled Shawnee’s shot on goal attempts, 16-8, plus numerous other opportunities on the Indians’ side of the field.
