MOVIN’ ON! MEN’S SOCCER ADVANCES TO SEMIS ON OVERTIME GOAL
The incredible ride that is the 2012 Men’s Soccer season will continue after the Mustangs toppled the fourth seed Warriors of Indiana Tech, 2-1, in 2OT. The win sends the No. 5 Mustangs to the semi-final round of action.
Saturday’s (Nov. 3) under the lights quarterfinal match featuring the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference No. 4 and No. 5 seeds lived up to its expectations as the closely-seeded teams battled for over 100 minutes of soccer before the contest could be decided.
In the first half, WHAC First Team All-Conference member Jordan Berry (Dearborn, Mich./Crestwood) put the Mustangs on top,1-nil, on a sliding goal assisted from WHAC Newcomer of the Year, Abdoullie Jallow (Bansang, The Gambia/Rust).
Both players would connect again as Berry knocked home the game-winning goal in the second overtime period.
With the win, the No. 5 Mustangs will travel to take on conference No. 1 seed Cornerstone University, Tuesday at 7:00pm.
