Seeing double at the soccer match

Rose-Hulman goalie had to look very familiar to Centre player who took 12 shots

The Tribune-Star

---- — There had to have been an interesting family reunion late Sunday afternoon after Rose-Hulman had battled regionally ranked Centre to a scoreless tie in women’s soccer.

The visiting Engineers were outshot 34-5 but managed the draw, thanks in part to a spectacular effort by goalkeeper Lucinda Combs.

Combs, who now has four shutouts in Rose-Hulman’s seven matches so far this season, had 13 saves Sunday, six of them against the Colonels’ star player.

The name of that star player who had 12 shots in all, more than twice the Rose-Hulman total? Alex Combs, Lucinda’s twin sister.

Now 4-1-2, Rose-Hulman hosts Illinois Wesleyan at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

In other soccer:
