The draw pushed the Owls’ unbeaten streak to seven games, their longest of the year.

Hilltoppers goalkeeper Allison Leone had 2 saves during the game, also keeping a clean sheet for her team.

FAU (12-7-1, 6-3-1 C-USA) had 12 total shots during the game, while Western Kentucky (8-5-5, 4-3-3 C-USA) took 20.

The Conference USA tournament begins Wednesday Nov. 4 on the campus of Florida International University. The Owls’ opponent will be announced at the conclusion of the regular season on Nov. 1.
