BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Western Washington University and University of Sioux Falls battled to a 0-0 overtime tie in a Great Northwest Athletic Conference men's soccer game Thursday night at Orca Field on the Whatcom CC campus.
The Vikings, who had a 26-10 shot advantage, are now 4-6-2 overall, 2-5-2 in the GNAC.
Sioux Falls is now 1-8-2 and 1-5-2. The Panthers' only victory was a 3-1 triumph over WWU in Sioux Falls, S.D., on Sept. 22.
"We created a lot of good chances," said WWU coach Travis Connell. "We just have to keep working on getting the final touch."
Forward Andrew Weishaar (Jr., Puyallup) had the best chance for the Vikings, putting a header off the crossbar in the 52nd minute. The ball then bounced out to Kurtis Pederson (Fr., Puyallup/Bellarmine Prep) whose shot from the top of the penalty area forced a diving save from Sioux Falls goalkeeper Kyle Simons.
WWU goalkeeper Keegan Rogers (Portland, OR/Portland Christian) had two saves in his fourth shutout of the season.
WWU is now 4-2-3 at home, with both defeats coming against teams ranked in the Top 10 nationally. The Vikings close out their five-game home stand Saturday (7 p.m.), Oct. 13, against Mary ND.
