Men’s Soccer Ties Stevenson
Owings Mills, Md. – Marymount University’s men’s soccer team tied Stevenson 2-2 on the road in Capital Athletic Conference action on Tuesday. The Saints scored both goals within a four minute span late in the second half before an own goal knotted the game and led to the draw.
Stevenson (8-4-1, 1-3-1 CAC) took an early lead in the first half, scoring in the 27th minute. The Mustangs would manage just another two shots in the frame en route to taking a 1-0 lead going into halftime.
In a hotly-contested game that saw six cautions, Marymount (5-7-2, 1-3-2 CAC) responded in the second half with consecutive goals in the 76th and 79th minutes. Kjell Crooke put the Saints on the board first to even the score at 1-1 before Philippe Millogo added the go-ahead score minutes later after a red card put the Mustangs a man down.
Forced into desperation mode, Stevenson put the pressure on the Saints in an attempt to salvage the game. After a pair of unsuccessful shots, the Mustangs lined up for a corner with just over eight minutes left in regulation. With the ball served into the box, the Saints defense’s clear attempt deflected off a Marymount player and in for the own goal.
Going into extra frames, MU’s defense and goalkeeper came up big in the two bonus stanzas. After the Saints’ backline held the Mustangs without a shot in the first overtime, senior netminder William Brahmstedt collected three saves in the second overtime to help seal the tie.
Marymount returns to action on Thursday, October 14, at Bridgewater (Va.) in non-conference play.
