TERRE HAUTE, IND. – Despite a stellar effort that produced a game-high 21 shots and 14 corner kicks, the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology men’s soccer team finished Wednesday’s nonconference contest with visiting Greenville College in a 0-0, double-overtime draw.
The Fightin’ Engineers (1-1-2, 0-0 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference) battled for several near-scoring chances throughout the match, but were shut out by Greenville goalkeeper Thomas Crown, who tallied seven saves on the night.
Rose-Hulman junior goalkeeper Drew Miller (Cincinnati, Ohio/Bishop Fenwick) displayed a stellar defense of his own, as he stopped three of Greenville’s shots in 110 minutes in goal.
The Engineers nearly broke the tie in the final minutes of regulation when senior Marshall Ishmael (Knoxville, Tenn./Farragut) fired a laser shot from the right side in the 89th minute, but Crown’s diving save ended the threat.
Rose-Hulman outshot the Panthers (1-1-2) by a 21-9 margin and won the battle on corner kicks, 14-7.
The Engineers return to action Saturday, when they host Millikin in a 3 p.m. matchup at Jim Rendel Field. The match will follow the women’s game against Millikin, beginning at 1 p.m.
#1 in the nation for 15 years!
