The College of Charleston men’s soccer team fought through another 110-minute game that ended in a 0-0 tie against Wake Forest Tuesday evening at Patriots Point.

“It was a tale of two halves,” said head coach Ralph Lundy. “We didn’t play well in the first 35 minutes, but we turned it around in the last 65 minutes. I was really proud of how aggressively we played towards the end of the game. Wake Forest is a very good team, but we would have liked to have gotten a win out there tonight.”

Though Wake Forest outshot the Cougars in both of the 45-minute halves, CofC had some nearly made shots at goal during the overtime periods that left fans sitting on the edge of their seats. Yet in the end, the Cougars were unable to pull through with a win.

Junior Ralphie Lundy suffered a blow to the head after accidently being kicked by an opposing player coming off of a slide tackle during the first half that put him on the sidelines for the rest of the game.

The Cougars will travel to Chapel Hill, N.C. to play North Carolina on Friday Oct. 14th at 7 p.m.
