OTTAWA – The Kansas Wesleyan Men's Soccer team played 110 minutes of scoreless soccer with the Ottawa Braves on Saturday night at Peoples Bank Field in Ottawa. Despite the tie, the Coyotes extend their KCAC regular season unbeaten streak to 40 matches, going 38-0-2 since early in the 2009 season.

Both teams had ample opportunity, just could not find the back of the net. Wesleyan's Daniel Chance hit the post with a shot in the 35th minute. Ottawa's Kyler Grimes nearly had the match winner at the end of regulation but missed just wide.


The teams only managed one shot in the first overtime by Wesleyan's Jorge Caballero that was blocked by an Ottawa defender. Wesleyan went on the offensive in the second overtime, but it was the Coyotes' keeper Blessing Ngwa that came up huge, saving a pair of shots in the final minute to preserve the shutout.


Ottawa outshot the Coyotes 23-20 as Salvador Rosales led the Coyotes with five shots. Blessing Ngwa made seven saves for the Coyotes while recording another shutout in the process.


Wesleyan will close out the regular season with a pair of home matches. The Coyotes host Sterling College next Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Salina Stadium and then close the regular season on November 5 against Saint Mary.
