Centre College's men's soccer team played 110 minutes of scoreless soccer in a 0-0 tie with Washington University Sunday at St. Louis.
The Colonels (4-1-1) hit the post twice in the game, but were unable to get a goal through regulation and two 10-minute overtimes. However, Centre reached its one goal - to record a shutout.
"(Goalkeeper) Jacob Sither came up very big for us today," Centre coach Jeb Burch said. "He had his third shutout of the season, and I need to compliment the defense as well. Stan Simek, Todd Davis, Rhodes Thompson and freshman Jeffrey Thornbury did an excellent job. All four of them plus Jacob played the full 110 minutes and one thing I saw in this game was that Centre has a championship defense."
Burch said the fact the game was played on a football field, which isn't as wide as Centre's soccer field, changed the Colonels' attack and forced them to play a more direct game.
