Cougar men still looking for first goal
The University of Minnesota, Morris men's soccer team is now 0-4-1 after the weekend's tie at Hamline and 2-0 loss to St. Thomas.
Morris has now gone a total of 470 minutes without a goal to start the 2012 season. Their last goal came in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference Championship last year in the 88th minute, meaning that the Cougars' drought is just north of 580 minutes.
The Cougars picked up a tie with Hamline Saturday as the game went scoreless for 110 minutes.
Jacob Borash picked up his first clean sheet as a member of the Cougars stopping five shots along the way.
The Morris offense had nine shots, four falling on net, but came up empty handed as they await their first goal of the season. UMM's leading scorer from last year, Ebrima Badgie, played for the first time all season picking up a team-high four shots and three shots on goal. His shot in the 109th minute was the final shot for either team.
