DAVIDSON, N.C. - Senior goalkeeper Megan Spencer made a career-high nine saves as the Coastal Carolina women's soccer team played to a 0-0 draw at Davidson on Sunday afternoon.

Both teams moved to 0-1-1 on the season with the tie, which was Coastal's first since a 1-1 result with Charleston Southern on Oct. 18, 2011.

The Chanticleers produced a bit more offense than in Friday night's opener, collecting 12 shots but were unable to get one by Davidson goalkeeper Rachel Locke.

The Wildcats, who suffered a 2-0 loss to East Carolina in their opener, had more chances in the game, recording 24 shots, including 21 in regulation. However, Spencer was there to stop all nine that came on goal and surpass her previous career-high total of seven last year against Kentucky. On Sunday, she recorded five saves in the first half, two in the second and one in each overtime period.

Coastal outshot Davidson 4-3 in the extra 20 minutes, with three of the attempts coming in the second OT, including one by freshman Ellie Taylor with 25 seconds left that was stopped by Locke. The Chants then drew a corner kick with 14 seconds left, but were unable to generate a shot off of it.

For the game, freshman Brianna Panico led the Chanticleers with five shots, putting two on goal. Kacey Kelley returned to the starting lineup and had four shots, with one on net. Seven of the Chants' 12 shots came in the first half.

CCU was again without Fia Jonsson and Christina Stern.

Coastal will head to Spartanburg for a pair of games next week, taking on Wofford on Friday night before facing USC Upstate on Sunday.
