PLYMOUTH, N.H. --  Freshman Jacob Castro (Swansea, Mass.) made six saves to record his first career shutout as UMass Dartmouth and Plymouth State battled to a scoreless double overtime draw in the Little East Conference men’s soccer opener for both schools Saturday afternoon at Arold Field.

Sophomore Linus Lindeberg (Stockholm, Sweden) also registered six saves in the draw for the Panthers, who held a slim 14-12 edge in overall shots and a 12-5 advantage in corner kicks of rthe contest.

UMass Dartmouth heads to Salem, Mass. on Wednesday evening to square off with Salem State in a non-league outing beginning at 7:00 pm, while Plymouth State will be idle until next Saturday, September 22nd when the Panthers travel to Gorham, Maine for a Little East clash with Southern Maine that begins at 1:00 pm.
