Covenant, Centre Draw 0-0

Friday, September 13, 2013

For a second consecutive home match, the Covenant men's soccer team played to a draw. The Scots faced off against Centre on a cool Friday night and after 110 minutes of play the two squads ended their match in a 0-0 tie in front of another large crowd at Scotland Yard.

Covenant also tied with Sewanee on Sept. 3 with a final score of 1-1. The Scots move to 3-1-2 for the season while Centre goes to 2-1-2.

The match nearly ended late in the second overtime period as Centre appeared to have won the game as they headed in a ball from a few yards out. However, Covenant players and coaches pleaded with the referees for a handball call and, after discussing the play among themselves for a few minutes, the referees agreed and negated the Centre score.

Neither team had a decent look at the net after that point.

Covenant again outshot its opponent, as they have done so for each of the six matches this season, but had just two shots on goal. The Scots dominated possession in the final 20 minutes of regulation, but the Centre defense stood tall.

Shuler Polk made both saves for the Scots, while Ohan Missirian-Dill secured two for the Colonels. Matt Hudnut led Covenant with three shots attempted while Gordon Carpenter and Hunter Harrison had two each.

Covenant will have another tough non-conference test next week when they host Birmingham Southern on Wednesday, Sept. 18. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. at Scotland Yard.
