DARTMOUTH, Mass. – In a tightly contested game, the University of Southern Maine Huskies and the UMass Dartmouth Corsairs had to settle for a scoreless double overtime draw in a Little East Conference men's soccer game Saturday afternoon at Cressy Field.
With the draw, Southern Maine stops a five-game slide and improves to 2-10-2 overall and 1-4-1 in the Little East Conference. UMass Dartmouth is now 1-9-3 overall and 1-3-3 in the LEC.
UMD narrowly outshot the Huskies 7-5 in the game, but Southern Maine registered three of its five shots in the second overtime period. The Corsairs also had a 9-5 advantage in corner kicks for the game, but were able to rely on senior goalkeeper Charlie Mull (Portland, Maine/Cheverus) for the 0-0 result. Mull, who has played nearly every position on the field during his career for the Huskies, recorded three saves in 110 minutes of action. UMass Dartmouth goalkeeper Jacob Castro did not have to make a save in the game.
Southern Maine returns to action on Tuesday (7:30 p.m.) against nationally-ranked St. Joseph's College in a non-conference game.
