For the fourth times in five games this season, Wildcat sophomore Emma Malsy kept a clean sheet as Kansas State Wildcats finished their brief two-game weekend road trip to California with a 0-0 draw against San Jose State Spartans. Malsy recorded six saves throughout regulation and overtime. The Cats had a chance to get the lead when Katie Cramer missed a penalty kick in the 28th minute, but it went wide of the left post.
The Cats (3-1-1) will return home for a Friday night contest against UMKC.

So those of you coming into town early should really go support the ladies, you hear?
