BALTIMORE - Diego McQuestion (Baltimore, Md./Gilman School) scored his first collegiate goal in the 58th minute, tying the game and sending Loyola University Maryland and Saint Peter's College to a 1-1 double overtime draw in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action on Sunday afternoon at Ridley Athletic Complex.
The Peacocks (5-4-1 overall, 1-0-1 MAAC) took a 1-0 first-half lead, but Loyola (5-3-2, 1-0-1) came back in the second half to even the score at 1-1 in the 58th minute.
(Portstewart, Northern Ireland/Loreto College Coleraine) played the ball deep in the left corner and passed to
(Gaithersburg, Md./Watkins Mill).
Ankrah touched the ball toward the top of the 18 and threaded a pass through several Saint Peter's defenders where McQuestion was crashing to the far post. McQuestion drilled a shot into the net for his first collegiate goal.
Lebongagna Pila put the Peacocks on the board in the 31st minute, on a break away to the top left corner of the box. Pila broke through the Loyola defense and show from 10 yards out, sending a shot into the right side of the net.
The two sides looked for a game-winner in regulation but came up short, and the Greyhounds headed into overtime for the second time since the first game of the year, a 0-0 tie at Campbell on September 1.
In the second overtime, Loyola had a free kick from 30 yards out.
(Upper Township, N.J./Ocean City) sent a bending ball just outside the six, but a Saint Peter's defender deflected it over the end line for a Greyhounds' corner kick.
Stephen Dooley's corner kick went to the far post where Eddie Dines (Newcastle Upon Tyne, England/Monkseaton) had a header that went wide of the goal.
With just over three minutes left on the clock,
(Baldwin, Md./The McDonogh School) stole the ball in the Peacocks' offensive end and worked it outside to Dooley. Dooley made a run down the touch line, crossing it to McQuestion whose shot was high.
Loyola hits the road for its next match, taking on Rider on Saturday, October 16 at 7 p.m.
