STONY BROOK, N.Y. - The UNH Wildcats and the Stony Brook Seawolves had their chances, but neither team could put the ball into the net as the men's soccer teams fought to a 0-0 tie Wednesday evening.
The first five minutes of overtime was dominated by Stony Brook (8-4-2, 2-2-2 America East), who put two shots on net. UNH (4-3-6, 3-0-3 America East) took over in the next five minutes with its own two shots on goal. The second overtime period saw several fouls by the Wildcats, but the Seawolves could not take advantage.
Both goaltenders needed to make big saves to keep their opponents off the scoreboard. UNH's Brian Levey (Pittsburgh, Pa./North Allegheny) made six saves as Chris Megaloudis and Anthony Barberio each put three shots on goal.
The Wildcat offense was led by Matt DeCastro (East Providence, R.I./Providence Country Day), who earned four total shots in the match, two of them on goal. Unfortunately for him and the rest of the Wildcats, Stony Brook goalie John Moschella was up to the task of stopping all six UNH shots on goal.
The lead in the America East will be on the line in UNH's next match, as the Wildcats host the Boston University Terriers Saturday morning at Lewis Field at 9:30 a.m. The Terriers defeated Northeastern earlier today to take a one-point lead over New Hampshire entering Saturday's match.
