Navy Scores Overtime Golden Goal To Beat Men's Soccer, 2-1
Oct. 6, 2009
BALTIMORE - Luke Goldsborough rebounded a shot and scored 1:48 into overtime to lift the U.S. Naval Academy to a 2-1 overtime victory over Loyola in non-conference action Tuesday evening.
The Midshipmen (6-5-0 overall) started an offensive charge down the left side shortly into overtime. Michael Uyehara ripped a shot from the top left corner of the box that Loyola goalkeeper knocked away.
Goldsborough, however, came to the far post and headed the ball in to the right side for the game-winning golden goal.
Loyola had come from a 1-0 deficit in the second half to tie the match and force overtime.
"It was a hard-fought match, and we got a little bit unlucky with some of our chances," Head Coach Mark Mettrick said. "I thought we did a good job of coming back to tie the game, and we have to keep persevering."
Navy took a 1-0 lead in the 60th minute, as David Jackson played the ball deep in the left corner to Michael Uyehara after he made an overlapping run.
Uyehara passed it back to Jackson who drove the left side of the 18. Jackson then crossed the ball to the middle of the box where Chris Marino ran on from the top to score the match's first goal.
Loyola (3-6-1) did not trail for long, however.
Darvill then beat his defender 1-on-1 and dribbled into the box. He blasted a shot from 15 yards out that beat Midshipmen goalkeeper Tyler Bristol to tie the match, 1-1, less than four minutes after Uyehara's goal.
Loyola dominated possession for most of the remaining time in regulation, but the Greyhounds were unable to convert their opportunities into goals.
Darvill nearly struck again just over four minutes after his goal, but his shot from the top left corner of the box was blocked by a Mids' defender.
Loyola forced Bristol to make saves on three-straight offensive possessions in the final seven minutes.
After the Greyhounds' defense blocked an Andrew Garcia shot, Leitch had another header from the left side that was saved.
Loyola finished with a 14-10 advantage in shots, 5-3 in corner kicks. Bristol made four saves, and Wittman had two.
The Greyhounds open Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action on Saturday, October 10, 2009, when they host Rider at 1 p.m.
