After two overtime periods and 19 shots, The Master's College women's soccer team had to settle for a 1-1 tie with Biola on Saturday at Pete Reese Field in Santa Clarita.

The Master's (12-4-2, 5-4-1) had already secured a playoff spot in the Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament, but a win would have given the Mustangs a home game on Tuesday.

Right now, they don't know who or where they will be playing.

"We didn't play well today," said The Master's head coach Curtis Lewis. "We beat Biola. We didn't beat the game."

While Lewis said that most of his players were having "off days," he praised the play of sophomore
midfielder Andrea Reyes, who created several opportunities for The Master's with her on-target passes and hustle.

"For me, I wanted to win more than anything," Reyes said. "A tie was like a loss for me because we had the opportunity to play at home."

It didn't take long for Biola (6-6-3, 2-6-2) to get on the scoreboard, with senior forward Ashley Moseley sending a slow roller into the net in just the tenth minute of play, giving the Eagles a 1-0 lead.

The Master's evened the score at 1-1 seven minutes later when, Canyon graduate Sierra Goff's shot was knocked away by Biola's goalkeeper Erin Frushon and TMC junior forward Emily Bruton was there for the rebound and the goal.

Bruton led the Mustangs' offense with six shots, five on target. Goff followed with four shots, three on-goal and the assist on Bruton's goal. Senior goalkeeper Amanda Durocher had two saves in the game.

Biola keeper Erin Frushon was peppered with 19 shots in the game, 12 of those on goal. Frushon made 11 saves, six of those in overtime where she turned away shots by Goff, Bobbie Roberts and Robyn Estrada in the first overtime period and made a diving save on a well-hit shot to the lower-right corner by Bruton in the second period of overtime.

Biola head coach Todd Elkins called that save "a game-saver."

"You hope your keeper can come up with those and she did," Elkins said. "Our team has been tough to score on and it's testimony to our team defense. Good defense keeps you in the game."

Biola's offense took six shots, with Moseley, Sam David and Kahlie Reinecke taking two shots each. Reinecke also had the assist on the goal.
