BILLINGS, Mont. - Western Washington University and Montana State University Billings played to a 0-0 overtime tie on Saturday in a Great Northwest Athletic Conference men's soccer game at Yellowjacket Field.
The Vikings are 3-2-1 overall and 1-0-1 conference. MSUB, still looking for its first win, is 0-4-2 overall and 0-1-1 league.
"The guys worked super hard and created four really good chances," said WWU head coach Greg Brisbon, whose team began GNAC play Thursday with a 2-1 win at Northwest Nazarene. "We were unable to score today, which was frustrating, but a win and a tie on the road is a great result for us."
All of the Vikings best opportunities came in the first half on shots by Andrew Weishaar (Sr., Puyallup), Leonard Kusina (So., Fairbault, MN/Shattuck St. Mary's Prep), Jeremy Wentzel (So., Edmonds/Edmonds-Woodway) and James Molyneux-Elliott (Fr., Issaquah/Skyline).
WWU had a 13-12 shot advantage and an 11-8 edge in corner kicks.
"The stats are a little misleading," Brisbon said. "If we did a possession stat, I would probably say 70 percent us and 30 percent them."
WWU goalkeeper Keegan Rogers (Jr., Portland, OR/Portland Christian) made six saves in recording his first shutout of the season.
MSUB's Matt Brink received a red card in the 37th minute and the Yellowjackets played a man down the rest of the way.
WWU returns home to host University of Mary on Thursday, Sept. 26 (7:30 p.m.), at Orca Field on the Whatcom CC campus.
