Salisbury and Richard Stockton play to 0-0 draw

SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University women's soccer team played 110 minutes of scoreless soccer against Richard Stockton College on Wednesday night at Sea Gull Stadium. The two teams earned a hard-fought 0-0 double-overtime tie. The shutout in the contest proved to be the third of the season for the Sea Gulls.

Salisbury (2-0-2) remained undefeated on the season while the tie marked the first of the year for Richard Stockton (3-0-1).
