WOOSTER, Ohio -- Neither The College of Wooster men's soccer team nor Grove City College could find the back of the net Thursday as the teams drew to a 0-0 tie.

Goalkeeper Will Collis stayed busy in all game. While he only recorded one save he disrupted a number of crosses put forth by the Grove City front line. Meanwhile, Grove City keeper Luke Greenway made five saves.

Wooster had a couple of near opportunities in the second half but fouls or offside calls put them back. Their best chances to score came in the overtime periods.

In the 95th minute, the ball bounced around the box before freshman Bennett Anderson attempted a score, but Greenway was there for the save. Keegan King had a shot blocked in the 109th minute for Wooster's last shot attempt.

Both teams had their chances as Wooster outshot the Wolverines 16-7 and won the corner kick advantage 4-3.

Four yellow cards were issued, all to the Fighting Scots, in a game that saw 36 combined fouls.

Wooster moves to 1-1-1 overall, while Grove City goes to 1-0-2. The Scots are in action again Saturday when they host the University of Pittsburgh-Bradford.
