Baltimore, MD - The UMBC and Navy men's soccer teams, tied for eighth place in the South Atlantic region, played to a 0-0 double overtime tie at UMBC Stadium.
The Retrievers are now 6-4-3 on the season, while the Midshipmen earned a draw for the first time in 2005 and are now 7-4-1.
UMBC did extend its home unbeaten streak to 26 (18-0-8) with the draw. It was Navy that was the last team to win a regular season game at UMBC, in September of 2002.
Each team had its scoring chances. UMBC dominated the first half, outshooting Navy, 9-1, but its best chance went awry when freshman midfielder Dan Bulls (Millersville, Md./Old Mill) knocked the ball over the net from close range after a long Retriever possession.
Navy rallied in the second half, as both teams attempted six shots. Navyâ€™s Kenan Knieriem shot wide of an unguarded net in the 55th minute, and Travis King struck the crossbar as he ran onto a centering pass in the 75th minute.
The scoring chances diminished in overtime, and Bulls had the best chance, as his volley from six yards on a Powell Cucchiella cross again went over the crossbar.
UMBC outshot Navy, 18-13, and Navy's Thomas Jenkins made five saves. UMBC freshman netminder Steve King recorded his fifth shutout in six starts as he made four stops for the hosts.
