Even with the tie, the Hokies have gone 5-0-1 in their last six matches and their six-match stretch without a loss is the second-longest unbeaten streak under Weiss. Tech went on a 10-match unbeaten streak between Sept. 27 and Oct. 29, 2005. It ties the 1980 squad for the third-longest such stretch, while the 1970 team went seven games without a loss and the 2005 team set the school record.
The Hokies are now 1-0-1 in overtime this season, out shooting the Tribe 18-9 and also holding a 15-5 advantage in corner kicks during the match.
Tech trailed 1-0 just three minutes into the match after William & Mary's Price Thomas gave the Tribe (2-3-2) an early advantage. The Hokies controlled the tempo the rest of the way and eventually gained an 8-6 edge in shots at halftime but could not take advantage in the first 45 minutes.
Tech (5-1-1, 1-0-0 ACC) finally capitalized on their increased chances and responded with an early-half score of its own, just five minutes into the second. The Hokies scored off a James Gilson corner kick early in the second half when Georg Zehender connected on a header off the bottom of the far post to tie the match. Zehender leads the team with six points this season off two goals and two assists. Tech moved to 2-1-1 when its opponents score first.
