NORFOLK, VA  --  The #9 Old Dominion men's soccer team fought the NC State Wolfpack to a scoreless tie Saturday night at the ODU Soccer Stadium in 90 minutes of action, in a rematch of last year's NCAA Tournament first round game, when the Monarchs won 6-3.  ODU improved to 1-0-1 in preseason action, defeating Virginia Tech 3-2 in Blacksburg, VA last Saturday.  John Connelly (Rockville, MD) earned the shutout for the Monarchs, facing three shots.


A stellar Monarch defense allowed only three shots by the Wolfpack, while ODU took eight shots for the game.  ODU also had a 5-3 edge in corner kicks for the match.  Gregg Mottinger (Carrolton, TX) picked up a yellow card at the 62:20 mark of the game for ODU.


The Monarchs open up their regular season at home Wednesday night at 7:00 PM, when they take on Campbell.
