LEXINGTON, Ky. – SIUE men's soccer continued its preseason Tuesday night, playing to a second consecutive scoreless draw at Kentucky.
"It was a very good game," SIUE Head Coach Mario Sanchez said. "I thought we played a complete game and we got another shutout."
The tie comes just two days after the Cougars earned the same result against No. 9 Notre Dame at Korte Stadium.
Despite not scoring, Sanchez said the offense was improved and the Cougars hit the post four times during the game.
"After just 48 hours, I thought we got better," Sanchez said. "That's a testament to the guys. They have been attentive in training and they're improving."
"Greg Solawa was very good again tonight," he said. "And we got a chance to see Kash (Smith) for the first time. I was happy to see him contribute."
SIUE returns to Korte Stadium for a final preseason match Friday against Dayton. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
