SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 1, 2016) – In the Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) men's soccer team's fourth overtime game of the season, the Saints succeeded in winning 2-1 over Paul Quinn College. The win moves the Saints to 6-2 overall, while Paul Quinn drops to 2-7 overall.
Paul Quinn is playing its first season of soccer in the Red River Athletic Conference, but the team is not eligible for the postseason, so games against them are nonconference.
Head Coach Shane Hurley commented, "In men's soccer, high-scoring games are not a regular occurrence, so one mistake can drastically affect the difficulty of the game. I'm proud of the efforts made, but I know we all could do better."
The game stayed scoreless through the 32nd minute, when OLLU's John Mendoza found the net for the first goal. With four seconds left in the first half, Paul Quinn's Fernando Periera scored. After a foul by OLLU's Adrian Delgado (SO/Brownsville, Texas), Sallas took a free kick and recorded the assist for Periera. Despite outshooting Paul Quinn 10-3, the beginning period ended with a 1-1 tie.
The Saints took eight more shots, all on goal, in the second half, and Paul Quinn added five; however, no one found the back of the net after regulation time had expired.
In overtime, OLLU's Arnulfo Gonzalez took 36 seconds to score to end the game.
Marco Perales (SR/Edinburg, Texas) led the Saints in shooting with five. John Mendoza had four shots, while Nickolas Tyrpak (SR/Dripping Springs, Texas), Angel De la Garza (SR/Brownsville, Texas) and Homero Trevino (JR/Edinburg, Texas) each had two shots.
Josue Herrera led the Tigers in shooting with three, two on goal.
The Saints outshot the Tigers 19-6. Starting keeper Igor Nunes do Nascimento (SR/Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) allowed the only goal for the Tigers and recorded one save. Jorge Cavazos (SO/McAllen, Texas) earned the win and recorded two saves for the Saints.
Tigers' keeper Gerson Herrera tallied seven saves.
The Saints will travel to Jarvis Christian College on Oct. 6 for a conference game at 3 p.m.
