The best opportunity in overtime for the Gusties was provided by Jon Astry. The Oles attempted to clear the ball out of the box and Astry struck the ball one-time with his right foot. St. Olaf goalkeeper Kyle Trimble stretched out and tipped the ball over the bar to force a corner kick.
Andy Moulton recorded three saves in net for the Gusties to earn his third shutout of the season.
