WALTHAM, Mass. – The Brandeis University women’s soccer team battled 24th-ranked Chicago to a 1-1 draw in a match that featured a one-hour, 25-minute delay in the second half due to lightning. The Judges move to 5-7-1 overall and 0-2-1 in the University Athletic Association, earning their first league point of the season, while the Maroons fall to 6-4-2, 0-1-2.

Brandeis wasted little time opening the scoring. Just 2:01 into the contest, senior Mimi Theodore ( Walpole , Mass. ) sent a ball back to the top of the box to sophomore Mary Shimko ( BAY VILLAGE /Lake Ridge Acad.). Shimko sent a high shot on net that UC senior goalkeeper Emma Gormley ( Carmel , Ind. / Carmel ) tipped but was unable to corral, and it drifted just under the crossbar. It was Shimko’s third goal of the season, a team-high.
