BERKELEY - Sophomore goalkeeper Kevin Peach made eight saves as California tied local rival San Francisco, 0-0, in double overtime on Sunday on Goldman Field at Edwards Stadium. The Golden Bears' record moved to 3-2-1 after the nonconference match with the Dons, whose record is 2-1-2.
The two previous meetings in this series were tight matches that resulted in a pair of 1-0 Cal victories in 2010 and 2011. This match was also close, with San Francisco outshooting Cal, 17-15, and the Bears earning a 4-3 edge on corner kicks. Brendan Roslund, Peach's counterpart, made seven saves for the Dons.
Junior midfielder Alec Sundly recorded Cal's lone shot on goal in the first half, with Roslund making a save on the shot at the 7:58 mark. Senior midfielder Tony Salciccia shot just over the San Francisco crossbar at 43:17 with Cal's last shot of the half. Peach saved all four of the Dons' shots on goal in the first 45 minutes, and the teams took the 0-0 score into halftime.
In the second half, Cal took four shots in the last 10 minutes of regulation, with senior forward Kyle Lunt recording a shot on goal at 82:41 and Salciccia forcing a save out of Roslund with a 30-yard free kick at 84:31.
The Bears outshot the Dons, 3-1, in overtime, including the lone shot in the second overtime - a long blast from Lunt that Roslund saved at 1:01.38.
Cal returns to action when it hosts Duquesne at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21.
