UC Santa Cruz got their third straight shutout, but couldn't find the net in a 0-0 tie with Northern California rivals Menlo College Tuesday afternoon.
UCSC goes to 1-3-2 and stopped Menlo's (4-1-3) four-game winning streak.
The resolute Banana Slug defense allowed four shots on goal to a Menlo team that came in having scored 21 goals in their last four games.
UCSC had a slight edge in shots (13-12) and corner kicks (3-1) but couldn't get the winning goal.
The best first good UCSC chance came in the first half. Whitwell got under a pass from Joelle Steichen after a corner but her header couldn't get past Oaks keeper Kaylin Swart.
In the second overtime, Megan Carey collected a pass with six minutes left but couldn't get her shot past Swart.
The Banana Slugs next play Saturday afternoon with a road matchup against Division II Fresno Pacific.
