BOCA RATON, Fla. - The Jacksonville University women's soccer team gained a 0-0 tie in double overtime against Louisiana-Lafayette on the final day of action in the FAU Kick-Off Classic. The Dolphins move to 0-1-1 after the first weekend of play.

While the scoreboard showed no goals, both teams had goals taken away for penalties.

"We had a successful weekend, despite the record," head coach Chris Kouns said. "The team showed marked improvement in the second game. This gives us something to build on going into next weekend."

Two Dolphins, freshman defender Emilie Howland (Bradenton, Fla.) and freshman midfielder Marissa Bernard (West Hartford, Conn.) were named to the All-Tournament Team.
