Petersburg 0, Pocahontas 0

PETERSBURG, W.Va. — Petersburg goalie Emilee Colaw had 13 saves in a defensive struggle that ended with the Vikings and visiting Pocahontas County playing to a draw.

Pocahontas led in shots, 13-3, and in corner kicks, 4-1. The best scoring opportunity for either team came on a Petersburg corner kick by Megan Whetzel in the final seconds, but time quickly expired after the well-placed boot. Pocahontas goalie Tanika Dunz finished with three saves.

“It was a really good effort, especially on the defensive end,’’ said Petersburg coach Becky Brosh. It was the second shutout of the season for Colaw. The other came in a season-opening 0-0 tie with Frankfort.

Petersburg (2-3-2) will host Preston on Saturday, at 11 o’clock.
