LACEY, Wash. - Goalkeeper Keegan Rogers (Jr., Portland, OR/Portland Christian) made five saves, his biggest with three seconds left in regulation, as Western Washington University played to a 0-0 overtime tie against Saint Martin's University on Thursday in a Great Northwest Athletic Conference men's soccer contest at SMU Field.
The Vikings, who began a string of five road games, ran their unbeaten streak to five games (3-0-2). They are 5-2-2 overall and 3-0-2 in conference play. SMU is 3-5-1 overall and 3-1-1 in league action. Goalkeeper Eric Owen had three saves for the Saints.
As the final seconds of regulation were ticking away, Rogers came across the goal mouth and barely tipped a shot by Saint Martin's Dylan Gaydosh over the bar.
"It was a pretty even game," said WWU head coach Greg Brisbon. "Both teams had chances to score and the keepers came up big for both squads.
"We missed on three one-on-one opportunities. It was just one of those games."
WWU had an 18-16 shot advantage, but trailed 11-4 in corner kicks.
The shutout was the second of the season for Rogers and the first for Owen.
The tie was the first between the two schools. WWU holds a 10-2-1 series advantage.
WWU is at Seattle Pacific on Saturday, Oct. 5 (7 p.m.), for a GNAC counter.
