MADISON, NJ – The Madison boys’ soccer team battled Morristown-Beard to a scoreless draw on Tuesday at Madison’s Ted Monica Field.

Both teams had many chances to score but were unable to capitalize on the opportunities.

"We have opportunities to score but we just don't make the best of it," Dodgers head coach Frank Nunez said.  "As long as we keep shutting out teams then we'll have the opportunities."

The Dodgers best chance of the first half came on a throw-in to senior Dylan Anderson who headed it to junior Jonathan Miller who then headed it back to Anderson for the shot, but it was corralled by the Morristown keeper.

The Crimson had a few key opportunities of their own in the second half, but Dodger senior keeper Reid Collins came up with two diving saves to keep the game scoreless.  Morristown’s freshman Mason Toye created multiple chances in Dodger territory but came up empty handed each time.

Aside from the two shots on goal by Morristown, the Dodgers dominated the second half by controlling the ball and putting pressure on the Crimson defense.

Despite maintaining possession throughout a majority of the second half, Madison could not find the net late in the game.

"They need to have the confidence to know that they could strike the ball from 20 yards out," Nunez said. “No matter what, our mental toughness should be there. We’re physically fit, we’re capable and we’ve been here before. It’s our game to lose.”

Both teams will take the field again on Thursday at 4 p.m.  The Dodgers host Parsippany High School while the Crimson get a visit from Dover.
