GW Men's Soccer Battles No. 19 Dayton to Scoreless Draw in A-10 Opener
Colonials Shut Out Nation's Top-Scoring Offense
Oct. 11, 2013
DAYTON, Ohio - The George Washington men's soccer team shut out the nation's top-scoring offense, opening Atlantic 10 play with a 0-0 tie at No. 19 Dayton on Friday evening at the Flyers' Baujan Field.
GW (3-6-1) handed Dayton its first blemish, as the Flyers (10-0-1) - who entered Friday's match averaging 2.8 goals per game - were the only remaining unbeaten and untied team in Division I.
Dayton held a 19-6 shot advantage through regulation, but the Colonials outshot the Flyers, 4-2, and had a pair of corner kicks in the two overtime periods. Dayton took six shots in the final 7:34 of regulation, including one with 10 seconds left, but none found target.
GW had the final two shots of the first extra session, including one by senior Abdul Shaban at the horn that went high. In the second extra period, sophomore Philip McQuitty saw his shot blocked with 1:17 to go before Dayton's Christopher Lenning shot high with 14 seconds left.
In his first appearance of the season, junior goalkeeper Luke Farrell made five saves to record his second career shutout, while Shaban was credited with a defensive save. Dayton goalie Chris Froschauer made three stops for the Flyers.
GW has played two overtime games this season, both against ranked opponents after falling to No. 11 UMBC, 2-1, in double overtime on Sept. 28.
The Colonials return to action on Sunday when they visit defending Atlantic 10 champion Saint Louis at 3:30 p.m. ET.
