WILMINGTON, North Carolina - UNCW built a 19-11 advantage in shots, but Georgia State goalkeeper Vincent Foermer was up to the task as the Seahawks and Panthers played to a scoreless draw on Wednesday at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.
With the tie, the Seahawks moved to 7-4-1 overall and 3-1-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association. The Panthers, meanwhile, pushed their mark to 5-4-3 and 2-3-1 in league play.
With the score tied at the half, the Seahawks held the better of play for most of the second half, but Foermer made four of his game-high 10 saves to force overtime. Foermer's biggest save came with just 27 seconds left in the half as he stonewalled UNCW freshman Andy McDaniel from six yards out.
In the first overtime, it was Foermer again as he came up with a finger tips save on a shot by UNCW junior Shaun Utterson in the 97th minute.
While it was Foermer for the Panthers, UNCW senior goalkeeper Brock Duckworth tied his season with six saves, three coming in overtime. The most dangerous opportunity for GSU was a 20-yard buckling strike by Eric Lawrence in the 96th minute that Brock deflected out of bounds for a corner kick.
UNCW held a 9-4 advantage in corner kicks.
The Seahawks take to the road on Oct. 16, when they visit Northeastern for a 6 p.m. start.
