UMass Minutemen hold defending champions to draw
AMHERST, Mass. -- The UMass men's team battled defending Atlantic 10 Conference champion Dayton to a 0-0 draw in both teams’ conference opener at Rudd Field Saturday.
UMass (2-6-2 overall, 0-0-1 A-10) threatened on Matt Mooney’s 28th-minute shot from the left flank off the crossbar. Dayton (3-5-2, 0-0-1) outshot the Minutemen, 17-16, its best chance an 89th-minute Coletun Long header that went just wide off a corner kick.
