MOUNT OLIVE -- Mount Olive College freshman keeper Nick Bernsdorf recorded his second consecutive shutout in the net, and helped preserve a 0-0, double-overtime draw against Erskine (S.C.) College on Saturday evening.

Bernsdorf notched six saves for the Trojans -- the same number of stops he logged in an overtime victory over in-state league foe Pfeiffer on Thursday.

MOC missed its best scoring chance in the 55th minute when Alex Bosch's shot was re-directed over the net.

Neither team posed a serious threat in the OT periods and neither goalie had a save.

The Trojans owned a 24-16 edge in shots.

Mount Olive (2-4-1 overall, 2-1-1 CC) entertains Queens University of Charlotte on Wednesday. Kickoff is 4 p.m. followed by the women's game at 7.
