The Glacier Wolfpack finished its season series with Western AA rival Helena Capital with a 0-0 tie at Glacier High School on Saturday.

Despite lobbing nine shots on the Capital goalkeeper, nothing found the back of the net for the Pack (6-2-2).

Glacier coach Ryan Billiet was pleased regardless.

“Really a well fought match by both teams,” he said. “For us to hold a shutout and not give up a lot of chances shows we’re very organized defensively.”

Billiet was especially impressed with the team’s performance after a Thursday game in Helena High (a 1-0 win) ended up an extremely late night — the team didn’t arrive in Kalispell until after midnight.

“The guys really held it together and put a good match together,” Billiet said. “Just couldn’t get on the other end of finishing today.”
