08/23/2012 – The men's soccer team opened the 2012 soccer schedule with a 0-0 draw in double overtime. The Saints and host Pilots from Bethel College played 110 minutes with neither team surrendering a goal. The contest marked the season opener for both squads.
The Pilots, who were receiving votes in the NAIA Preseason Poll, were out shot by the Saints 11-10. Aquinas keeper, Landon Palmer, recorded three saves, while his counterpart, Cody Troyer tallied five. The two defenses held serve for much of the contest keeping the shots to a minimum.
The Saints will look to notch Coach Veal's 200th career victory at home on Tuesday when Aquinas hosts Ohio Midwestern at 3 p.m.
