COLORADO SPRINGS -- Freshman Zidani Batiste's penalty kick in the 30th minute helped the Johnson & Wales University men's soccer team earn a draw with Albion College on Saturday. 

For the second time in as many games to start the season, the Wildcats (0-1-1) out-shot the opposition, finishing with a 16-13 edge over the Britons in a neutral site contest played at Colorado College's Stewart Field. 

JWU freshman Coby Zazueta led the attack with five shots on goal while Batiste had two and junior Emad Bashir-Mohammed one. 

The Britons got off to a fast start, taking a 1-0 lead in the seventh minute on a goal by Alex Sayeg. Junior goalkeeper Zac Collins made his Wildcat debut, finishing with five saves. 

JWU heads to Dallas, Texas, next weekend to battle Texas-Dallas on Friday (6:30 p.m. MT) and Hardin-Simmons on Saturday (4 p.m.).
