Double OT goal drops @DubC_MSoccer

ALLIANCE – Mount Union scored less than two minutes into the second overtime to record the 3-2 victory over the Wilmington College men's soccer team Saturday in Ohio Athletic Conference action at Mount Union Stadium.

"It was heartbreaking loss," said Wilmington head coach Bud Lewis. "We battled back twice to get back into the game."

The Purple Raiders took the lead in just the fourth minute, but it didn't take too long before the Fightin' Quakers found the back of the net. Sophomore Niklas Martennson (Torna Hallestad, Sweden/NTI) headed home a corner kick from freshman Anton Holmqvist (Tyreso, Sweden/Varmoto Gymnsasium) in the game's 10th minute.

With a goal in the 33rd minute, the Purple Raiders reclaimed the lead.

Martennson tallied his sixth goal of the season off a free kick in the 69th minute.

Wilmington had a chance for the game-winner in the final moments, but a crossing pass was scored after the time had expired.

Senior Nick Baker (Indianapolis, IN/Decatur Central) made three saves on six shots.

Wilmington (4-10-2 overall, 1-6 OAC) hosts Muskingum 7 p.m. Tuesday in Ohio Athletic Conference action.
