2009 Season - Third straight shutout in 0-0 tie at Beloit
Continuing with their theme of playing tremendous defense, the Vikings posted a third straight shutout on Tuesday, October 13 against Beloit. The two teams played to a 0-0 double overtime tie in non-conference action on the Buccaneers home field. Once again, senior goal keeper Mike Dolan (Libertyville HS, Libertyville, Ill.) was outstanding as he posted his third consecutive shutout and his fourth of the season.
He recorded five saves, including two in the first overtime and one in the second extra session. He was recently named the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin’s “Player of the Week” for his effort in back-to-back shutouts of Wheaton (1-0 on October 7) and North Park (2-0 on October 10).
Beloit held an 11-9 advantage in shots on goal but Augustana posted a 10-6 edge in corner kicks. Senior Scott Wallner (Buffalo Grove HS, Arlington Heights, Ill.) led the Vikings with four shots during the 110 minute match.
With the tie, Augustana is now 5-6-1 on the season while Beloit is 5-2-4. The Vikings will be in action again on Saturday, October 17 with a 7:30 p.m. College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin match with North Central.
