Siena men's soccer team shut out Army this afternoon, but was unable to score itself, settling for a 0-0 double overtime tie in front of 150 excited fans at Siena Soccer Field.
Thomas Santoro totaled four shots for the Saints, while Alejandro Vazquez garnered three shots; two on goal and sophomore Liam Welsh added one shot on goal.
With less than 2 minutes of play, Army had an opportunity to score of a corner kick from David Yu, but was denied by senior co-captain C.J. Mellili who split the Knights offense at the 110th minute.
The Black Knights outshot the Saints 15-11 and forced Siena goalkeeper Patrick Henry, who played all 120 minutes, matched his career-high seven saves and recorded his third shut out on the season. Knights' keeper Matt Wesmiller had to make four saves in his first tie of the season. Both teams nabbed seven corner kicks.
The Saints record is now 0-5-3, while Army moves to 3-7-1.
