WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - No. 15 Wake Forest recorded its eighth shutout of the season as the Demon Deacons battled to a scoreless draw against Virginia Tech Thursday night.

The Deacs (9-2-2, 3-1-1 ACC) recorded their eighth clean sheet of the season, the most since eight were recorded in 2013. Lindsay Preston played all 110 minutes in goal for the Deacs, picking up her fifth solo shutout of the season and 15th career solo shutout.

The two teams battled it out in the first half with the Hokies (6-3-4, 0-2-3 ACC) taking a 4-2 advantage in shots. The Wake Forest backline held strong while Preston was solid in goal, recording two saves, to keep the game scoreless heading into the break.

In the second half, the Deacs took control of possession and held a 7-1 advantage in shots and an 11-1 advantage in corners kicks, including six corners in the final two minutes of regulation. However, Wake Forest only managed to get one shot off as time ran out, sending the match into overtime.

Preston was put to the test for the third time of the evening when Tech's Madi Conyers stole the ball and dribbled down the field as time expired. Conyers managed to get a shot off with a second remaining but Preston leaped to make the save.

Wake Forest finished the contest with a 10-6 advantage in shots, led by Bayley Feist with three shots, two of which were on target. Estelle Laurier and Sarah Medina also managed two shots each, while Medina recorded one shot on goal.

Six Demon Deacons played the entire 110 minutes, including Preston, Maddie Huster, Claudia Day, Ally Haran, Kate Ravenna and Madison Hammond.

Up next, Wake Forest will battle No. 5 North Carolina on Sunday, Oct. 8. The contest is set for 5 p.m. at Spry Stadium.
