(PITTSBURGH, Pa.) - The Carnegie Mellon University men's soccer team hosted the University of Mount Union for its second game of the season on Saturday, September 4. The two teams played to a 0-0 draw after 110 minutes of action. The Tartans are now 1-0-1 for the year.

After the Purple Raiders possessed the ball through much of the first half, the Tartans took over the possesion in the second half. During the first period while the ball was played mostly between the penalty areas, each team took three shots with the Purple Raiders putting one on frame for sophomore Stefan Sorobay (New York, N.Y. / Stuyvesant) to stop.

With the run of play in the Tartans favor in the second half, the home team fired off eight shots with three on frame for Tyler Venti to keep out of the net. One of the Tartans best opportunities came off the foot of freshman Kuba Yiadom (Bowie, Md. / Charles Herbert Flowers) in the 87th minute when the shot bounced just wide to the right.

In the 63rd minute, Sorobay swallowed up an opportunity by the Raiders when the ball bonced around the box with Austin Overy attempting a shot but with little pace to it.

Both overtime periods were played evenly and mostly in the central third with both teams taking two shots.

The Tartans will next host 20th-ranked John Carroll University on Thursday, September 9 at 7:00 p.m.
