Adrian Foncette made four saves, including one from point-blank range in the final minutes, as UAlbany battled Vermont to a 0-0 double-overtime tie in America East Conference men's soccer action on Wednesday, Oct. 14 at Centennial Field.
Vermont (1-6-5, AE 1-0-2), which knocked off a nationally-ranked opponent for the sixth straight season with a 3-1 win over #18 UMBC in its America East opener, had a huge opportunity to net the golden goal in the waning minutes of the second extra session. Rem Kielman took a through ball on the left side and only had Foncette standing in his way. However, the sophomore made a diving save on the shot which was scorched from the top of the box to preserve the tie.
UAlbany's Foncette faced 16 shots in earning his second shutout of the season and fifth of his career. Vermont's Tom Critz turned away four of the 15 shots he faced to record his second clean sheet of the fall.
UAlbany (0-9-3, AE 0-2-1) will conclude its three-game road swing against America East opponents when it visits Stony Brook on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m.
