Collin Lewis fired off four shots in Monday's draw at UAH.
The Lee men's soccer team and Alabama Huntsville combined for 37 shots but in the end no one found the back of the net in a Gulf South Conference scoreless double OT battle on Monday afternoon from the Merrimack Complex.

The Flames had plenty of scoring opportunities with a goal called back on an offsides call, two shots ricochet off crossbar and two close misses on headers. The greatest scoring chance however was a penalty kick chance in the 103rd minute. UAH keeper Giancarlo Martinez was up for the challenge however as he saved the penalty try by Mattia Balzano to save the result for the home team.
Martinez finished with four saves.
 
Lee keeper Sam Keener, fresh off United Soccer Coaches Player of the Week honors, recorded his second straight clean sheet as he recorded six saves in the match and now boasts a 0.29 GAA in three matches.

The shorthanded Flames used just 13 players while the Chargers played 14. Owen Keck and Collin Lewis led Lee with four shots each. UAH held a 17-15 advantage in shots, and a 6-4 edge in shots on goal. The Flames earned four corners while the Chargers took five.

"I am really proud of the guys and their effort tonight," said Lee head coach Derek Potteiger. "We had 13 field players available with a few guys playing the whole game who had not played major minutes, and in some spots playing totally out of position. That was a group effort I'm proud of."

Potteiger went on to lament the missed opportunities, "It's hard to feel like the result you really wanted just slipped through your fingers. The missed scoring opportunities and of course the penalty in overtime all amounted to the reality that we should have won the game. So we will take the disappointment along with the great effort and prepare for the next game this coming Sunday."

Lee moves to 0-1-2 on the year while the Chargers now sit at 1-0-2.

Next up for the Flames is a short trip down to Rome, Ga. to take on the Shorter Hawks on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
