MADISON, Wis. -- The University of Wisconsin men's soccer team (1-4-1) concluded the inaugural Wisconsin Soccer Classic with a scoreless double-overtime tie against Dayton (2-2-1) before 457 fans at the McClimon Complex on Sunday afternoon.

"I think the guys are turning the corner in some aspects," Wisconsin head coach John Trask said. "I thought we played well in the first half, and I thought we played well in the second half. We dominated a Dayton program that historically is very good.

"It was a pretty good weekend for us all together. We lost to a decent San Diego State team and tied this Dayton team today. It's definitely something that we can build off."

 Fast Facts
• Vint earns second career shutout
• Nichols and Wheeler named to all-tournament team
• Next up, UW travels to Creighton on Friday

The Badger defense held Dayton to just eight shots with two on goal. Senior goalkeeper Ryan Vint (Plymouth, Minn.) made two saves to earn his second career shutout in 110 minutes of play.

"I thought, all weekend long, Arnel [Zahirovic], Cruddy [Kyle McCrudden], Luke [Goodnetter] and Blake [Succa] did a nice job," Trask said. "There are things they can still do better, but I like that defensive package back there. I thought Vint bounced back from Friday and looked pretty solid again today."

The Badgers maintained offensive pressure throughout the entire game. One of the team's best opportunities came in the 37th minute when junior Colin Mani (Madison, Wis.) ripped a shot from 20 yards out, but it skimmed just over the crossbar.

Wisconsin outshot UD 16-8 in the game, including an 8-3 margin in the second half. The Badgers posted three shots on goal, but Dayton keeper Tyler Picard made three saves. Junior Austin Spohn (Cincinnati, Ohio), senior Aaron Nichols (Woodstock, Ill.) and freshman Chris Prince (Naperville, Ill.) tallied Wisconsin's three shots on goal.

"Austin Spohn came back in the mix today," Trask said. "He's a little bit older and a little bit stronger, and I think he had a good presence today. I thought Nick Janus was very good today as well. He played at attacking midfield and gave us energy and good composure on the ball."

The Badgers kept the pressure on late in the game. With less than four minutes remaining, Janus carried the ball up the field. After drawing Dayton's defender to the left side, Janus found sophomore Ata Ozbay (Barrington, Ill.) in the center of the field. Ozbay one-timed a shot, but it missed just to the left of the goal.

Wisconsin and Dayton both tallied two shots during the extra time, but neither team could capitalize and the game ended in a 0-0 double-overtime tie. The game marked Wisconsin's second double-overtime game of the season.

Nichols and freshman Trevor Wheeler (Arlington Heights, Ill.) were named to the Wisconsin Soccer Classic all-tournament team. Dayton's Jordan Beckett was selected as the weekend's offensive MVP, and San Diego State's Daniel Steres was the defensive MVP.

The Badgers had 11 corner kick opportunities to UD's one. UW also had more fouls than the Flyers, taking 17 compared to 11 by Dayton. Mani picked up a yellow card, and the Flyers took two yellow cards and two red cards.

Wisconsin begins a three-game road stretch when the team travels to Omaha, Neb., to face Creighton on Friday.
