HELENA - Etching her name into program history, Rocky Mountain College goalkeeper Maia Wetzel broke the school record for most shutouts in a single season after recording her ninth of the year in the Bears' 1-0 win over Carroll College Sunday.

Neither team scored through the first 45 minutes of play, but the Battlin' Bears (10-3-1, 7-2-1 CCC) struck early coming out of the half, as Tiara Duford's shot bounced off the crossbar before ricocheting into the goal.

Rocky outshot the Saints (8-6-2, 4-5-1 CCC) in both periods. The Bears also held a 6-3 advantage in corner kicks.

Rocky's men also pitched a shutout in the second game of the doubleheader, beating the Saints 2-0. Sky Swenson scored the match's first goal in the 38th minute off an assist from Nolan Sherwood. Pablo Ferreira then doubled the lead in the 54th minute off an assist from Milo Downey.

Kristofer Wennin recorded eight saves in the shutout win, moving the Bears to 11-3-0 overall and 10-1-0 in the Cascade Collegiate Conference. The Battlin' Bears held a 21-17 edge in shots and led 4-2 in corner kicks.

NEXT: Rocky will travel to Portland, Oregon on November 1 to play Northwest Christian.
