Brown Records Nine Saves in First Career Shutout

YORK, Pa. - Stevenson men's soccer senior Jake Brown recorded a career-high nine saves for his first career shutout as the Mustangs finished in a scoreless double overtime tie versus York (Pa.) Saturday evening at Graham Field.

It is the second double overtime game for the Mustangs (1-2-1) this season and fourth scoreless tie since the start of the 2015 season.

The Spartans (2-0-1) dominated the shots for the game, holding a 22-10 advantage, including 19-7 in regulation. Stevenson only managed two shots on net for the game, both saved by Billy Bridegum. The Mustangs two shots on frame came in the final four minutes of regulation and 3:05 into the second overtime.

Stevenson had two early scoring opportunities in the opening half, but both shots were blocked by the York defense.

Freshman Tariq Lee, who led the team with three shots, had the best scoring opportunity for the visitors as he chipped a shot over Bridegum who came out to play a shot in the 23rd minute, but Lee's shot took a big bounce and hit off the crossbar and bounced back into the field of play.

The Mustangs had another opportunity late in regulation as sophomore DR Medtart fired a shot on frame but was knocked away by Bridegum before the ensuing shot by Lee sailed high.

Brown recorded five of his nine saves in the second half, including a save with eight seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime. He also came up with a save just 1:58 into the second overtime period.

Stevenson returns to action on Wednesday, September 13 when the Mustangs host a non-conference contest versus Randolph-Macon beginning at 7:00 p.m.
