ANN ARBOR, Mich. - No. 17 Wake Forest and Michigan played to a scoreless draw at the U-M Soccer Complex Sunday afternoon.

The Demon Deacons (6-1-1) held a 20-10 advantage in shots and a 6-4 lead in shots on goal but were unable to put away any of the opportunities. The 20 shots for the Deacs matches the season-high they set on Thursday at Michigan State.

Bayley Feist led the Deacs with four shots, two of which were on goal. Sofia Rossi took three shots, all of which were on target, while Peyton Perea added a shot on goal. Despite the offensive effort, the Michigan (3-1-3) keepers combined for six saves to keep the game scoreless.

Lindsay Preston was solid for the Demon Deacons, as she spent all 110 minutes in goal and recorded four saves. The shutout was Preston's third solo clean sheet of the season and the team's fifth.

One of Wake Forest's best chances came from Ryanne Brown in the 92nd minute when she took a header shot off Maddie Huster's corner followed by a shot from Perea that was saved at the last second in the 94th minute.

Six Deacs played all 110 minutes including Preston, Vicky Krug, Huster, Ally Haran, Kate Ravenna and Madison Hammond.

The game wraps up Wake Forest's two-game Big Ten road trip while marking the Wolverines' first contest since a 2-1 loss to No. 11 South Carolina on Sept. 3.

Up next, Wake Forest will open ACC play at home on Friday, Sept. 15 against Pitt. The match is set for 7 p.m. in Spry Stadium.
