Jeffs Play to Double-Overtime Scoreless Tie at Babson

Team
The scoreless tie marked the third straight game the Jeffs have blanked the opposition

September 26, 2002

WELLESLEY, MA Riding a two-game winning streak, the Amherst College men's soccer team played to a 0-0 double-overtime tie at non-conference foe Babson College on Wednesday afternoon. Amherst senior forward Dave Michener (Eden Prairie, MN) nearly won the game with four minutes remaining in the first extra session, but was turned away on a spectacular save by Babson goalie Tom Malloy (Newton, CT).

After an evenly played opening stanza, the Jeffs gained control in the midfield and had a slew of legitimate scoring opportunities early in the second half. Babson regained momentum toward the end of regulation, however, as senior Jonah Frisch (Los Angeles, CA) and junior Shaun Dowell (Vienna, VA) sparked a 20-minute outburst in which the Beavers recorded six of their 13 shots in the contest. Amherst first-year goalie Greg Lockwood (Vancouver, WA) withstood the barrage, coming up with a number of outstanding saves to send the game into overtime.

Both overtime periods were marked by outstanding goalkeeping. Malloy made three of his nine saves in the first overtime, including his game-saving stop against Michener. At the other end, Lockwood made a diving save on a curving shot by Dowell midway through the second overtime for his sixth and final save of the contest.

Amherst, now 2-1-1 on the season, returns to action Saturday at Noon at NESCAC rival Bowdoin College. Babson fell to 4-3-2 with the tie.
