Poughkeepsie, N.Y. – Diana Barrera tallied her third goal in as many games for the UAlbany women’s soccer team in a 2-2 effort against Marist on Sunday afternoon at Leonidoff Field. The tie marks the third straight game in which the Great Danes fought off extra frames to avoid a loss.

Freshman forward Teresa Boring tallied her first collegiate goal at the 12:44 mark of the first half, finishing a cross from Jaclyn Rosada to give the Great Danes an early lead. Barrera gave UAlbany a 2-0 advantage in the 36th minute off an Adrienne Heady feed and the Great Danes would take the lead into the second half.

Marist (1-2) broke their scoreless draught with 22 minutes left in regulation with Lauren Tillotson scored an unassisted goal to cut the deficit to 2-1. Katie Zasly knotted the game at 2-2 just under 10 minutes later, chipping a shot from the top of the box over UAlbany goalkeeper Maria Liguori. Kate Fox was credited with the assist.
