Mountaineers fall in OT
BENNINGTON >> The Southern Vermont College men's soccer team nearly defeated Lyndon State College Tuesday afternoon, but a double-overtime shot that barely ricocheted back into play allowed the Hornets to score with just 1:55 left on the clock to beat SVC 3-2.
Lyndon got on the board first to take a 1-0 lead into the half, only to see the Mountaineers tie it up with a goal from Kieran Enright, just 1:34 into the second stanza.
The 1-1 score didn't last long as the Hornets went back on top in the 54th minute, but SVC got its second score of the day only 52 seconds later to even things once again on a goal from Paddy McGovern.
Neither side had any great chances through the first 10-minute extra session before SVC made a push in the second overtime that resulted in a few good looks.
A Lyndon turnover in its defensive end gave the Mountaineers an open opportunity, but the shot would ring off the inside of the left post and bounce back across the box to the relief of the visitors.
Less than three minutes later, Lyndon cleaned up a rebound off the post at the other end-- stuffing home the game-winning goal to walk out with the victory.
Chris Jimenez had 11 saves in net for the Mountaineers in the loss.
The Mountaineers drop to 3-3 on the year with the loss.
SVC will try to get back on the winning track when they open up New England Collegiate Conference play on Saturday at home against Daniel Webster.
