Yellow Jackets Score Overtime Win Over Presidents 2-1
WAYNESBURG, Pa. -- Tim Fields' overtime goal gave Waynesburg its second-ever men's soccer victory over Washington & Jefferson by a 2-1 margin at a rainy Wiley Stadium on Friday night.
The Yellow Jackets (7-7-1, 2-3-1 PAC) won despite being outshot by a 32-17 margin. W&J (5-6-1, 3-2-1 PAC) also held an 11-3 corner kick advantage. Waynesburg knocked off W&J for the first time since Oct. 14, 2006, also a 2-1 score on Waynesburg's home turf. The Presidents lead the all-time series 25-2.
Following a scoreless first half, Waynesburg got on the scoreboard first in the 71st minute when Cody Lemke grabbed a rebound and slipped a shot past W&J goalkeeper Jon Best (North Huntingdon, Pa./Norwin).
WU goalie Brandon Daughtry made a diving safe on a W&J penalty kick at the 79:01 mark; however, the Presidents still managed to tie the match 56 seconds later when freshman forward Adam Suter (Butler, Pa./Butler) netted his second goal of the season. W&J outshot the Yellow Jackets 21-7 in the second half and attempted the first two shots of overtime, including one by sophomore midfielder Paul Boerema (Amherst, N.Y./Amherst Central) which bounced off the crossbar.
Juan Angel's header pass to Fields early in overtime resulted in the game winner. Best picked up eight saves for W&J, while Daughtry turned back nine shots.
The Presidents are back in action on Wednesday in Kentucky versus Thomas More (1:00 pm).
