Oakland Mills and Arundel worked 80 minutes of regulation and 20 more in extra time for a deciding answer on offense.

One never came.

Strong play in goal, tough marking and an inability to finish on both teams' parts resulted in a 0-0 draw yesterday afternoon at Oakland Mills.

Arundel, focusing on getting the ball to senior striker Abria Queen, had the better of the chances throughout the day and particularly in the two overtime periods.

But Oakland Mills' answers were back Stephanie Amponsah, who stayed step for step with Queen, and a fine 13-save performance from senior keeper Nicole Petro.

The Scorpions relied on Molly Sunderdick's dangerous long throw and Rachel Clinton's speed at wing, but they too couldn't solve the defensive mystery.
