Men's Reserve Win Fourth Straight
Men's Soccer - Wed, Sep. 15, 2010
The Holy Cross men's soccer reserves are on a roll winning 4 in a row. The Saints played a very good Goshen team. Originally set to kick-off at 7pm the game did not start until 9pm.
The first half was played fairly even until Goshen received a penalty kick and finished it. With 17 seconds remaining in the half Goshen scored a goal that put the Saints down 2-0 going into half.
The second half was a completely different story than the first. Dan Hatfield set up numerous scoring opportunities with his long throws and the boys pressed hard. Mathew Proano finished a ball with about 25 minutes remaining to make it a 2-1 game. Proano was rewarded with a long run into the box with a penalty with seven minutes left in regulation. Ashley Wormall stepped up and calmly stuck it home to even the score.
The Saints went into overtime with their heads held high. Just a few minutes into overtime one of our guys was given a second yellow and the Saints were forced to play down a man. However, this didn't faze the team and off another Dan Hatfield throw in Richie Campos finished off what was one of the best come back wins in men's soccer history.
"The boys have won 4 games in a row and we have 7 goals in 4 games and only 2 against," said Coach Gallo. "The reserves represented Holy Cross well today. The game was a hard fought contest but the guys stepped up and got the job done."
In the previous three games the Saints have defeated and shutout IUSB, Bethel College, and Andrews University. The reserves will be back in action on Tuesday, September 21st, against Robert Morris. The game will be played at Valparaiso University.
