WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Goalkeeper Ryan Ott made seven saves to help the Bucknell men's soccer team to a 0-0 tie at Howard in a non-conference game on Tuesday night at Green Stadium. Bucknell took 17 shots and put eight on frame, but could not get one past Howard keeper Carlos Caro.
Bucknell is now 4-5-3 on the season heading into another road contest Saturday at Colgate. Howard played its second consecutive scoreless draw -- the Bison played Appalachian State to a 0-0 stalemate in their Sun Belt opener on Saturday -- and is now 1-10-2 on the season.
Bucknell's Nick King had the best look in the first half but was robbed by Caro with about 10 minutes to go. Howard's Franchino Chambers found space with about 90 seconds left in regulation, but Ott made a big save to force overtime.
Bucknell had four great looks in overtime but could not covert. Matt Thorsheim, who attempted a game-high six shots, saw one hit the cross bar and another cleared off the line in extra time.
Bucknell finished with a 17-13 shot advantage and a 6-2 edge in corner kicks. Head coach Brendan Nash tapped into his depth in this one, using seven substitutes for at least 27 minutes each.
Saturday's game at Colgate gets underway at 4 p.m. and can be seen on the Patriot League Network.
