Men's soccer plays No. 13 W&L to scoreless draw

Kyle Gallagher yells to the defense as the ball is in the air above the players' heads

Lynchburg, Va. -- Defense reigned supreme in University of Lynchburg's 0-0 draw in a non-confernece match with No. 13 Washington and Lee University Wednesday night at Shellenberger Field. 

Junior goalkeeper Kyle Gallagher had a career day, making 11 saves, besting his previous career high of nine. 

The Lynchburg defense was tested early as the Generals (6-1-2) got off nine shots on goal in the first half, compared to the Hornets' six. 

Lynchburg's defense was on display all night as a number of Hornet defenders recorded blocked shots and neutralized the Generals offense on its 10 total corners. 

Lynchburg juniors Ben Mackey and Abibi Osman recorded two shots each; the Generals' Jack Parham recorded three shots on goal; but neither team could force a score after 90 minutes, and the match went into overtime scoreless.

Both teams made runs in the extra time, but none bigger than W&L's late push. With 1:38 to go in the second overtime period, the Generals had a golden opportunity as Harry Pinkerton broke past the defense and finished, but the goal was called off due to offsides.

The Hornets made a last-ditch effort of their own, but Osman's shot was saved as W&L keeper Michael Nyc came out to greet the forward.

Lynchburg is back in action on Saturday Sept. 28, opening Old Dominion Athletic Conference at 6 p.m. against the Roanoke College Maroons in Salem.
