Both teams were tied in shots having 12 attempts, and Marshall led BG in corner kicks 6-5 and in saves 7-4.

BG senior Anthony Grant led all players from both teams with five total shots and four shots on the goal.

BG then headed to Highland Heights, Ky., to go face Northern Kentucky on Sunday.

BG tied with Northern Kentucky. in another double overtime game 0-0.

BG dominated the possession most of the game and out shot Northern Kentucky 8-3 in the first 45 minutes of the first half. BG Goalkeeper Michael West made three saves.

BG controlled most of the game not allowing Northern Kentucky many shots in the first half nor the second half.

BG out shot Northern Kentucky 17-13 and in corner kicks 11-1, while Northern Kentucky had more saves 5-3. 

“We created a lot of chances but there is something missing to our offense,” Nichols said.  

“I was even more pleased with today’s game more than the game against Marshall,” Nichols said. “We were really dominant this game.”

“We were really comprehensive this game we didn’t have any player who played poorly,” Nichols said.

“We believe in our ability to score. We have been working on finishing the chances we are creating,” defender Vlad Lekarev said. “Defensively we have been great we just need to tighten things up.”

After ending the last two games in ties, BG is now 1-4-4 overall this season.

BG is headed to Buffalo, Ny., to end its five road games then head home for its next three games. BG will take on Buffalo Friday Oct. 4 at 7 p.m.
