Serena Runyan

In a game against Willamette Bearcats this Saturday at the Whitman Soccer Complex, the Whitman men’s soccer team held their own through two overtimes and ended 0-0.

In the first ninety minutes, Whitman dominated possession, with great shots by senior Andrew Clark and sophomore Joe Virdon, but Willamette managed to hold up their defense to push the game into it’s first overtime.

It looked like the team was on its way to winning. But as overtime went on, control went to Willamette as the game stayed at 0-0 and pushed into its second overtime. Another great shot just a few yards out by Virdon was blocked, as Whitman picked up momentum near the end. Missionaries stayed close to the goal and fans got ready for a close win, but time ran out as the second overtime ended and fans cheered for the good work and close game.
