Men's Soccer Ties in Double OT, 1-1

Men's Soccer Ties in Double OT, 1-1


Cambridge, Mass.—The Lesley Men's Soccer team hosted Pine Manor College in a non-conference match up at Franke Field Wednesday evening.  A pretty evenly contested match for both squads left the match ending in a double overtime 1-1 tie. 


  • The Gators dominated the attack most of the first half outshooting Lesley 8-3, but the Lynx were able to even the score and send the match into half time with a score of 1-1.
  • Pine Manor took advantage of a Lesley foul inside the box and sunk a penalty kick to take a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute.  Adrian Ochoa beat Lynx keeper David Crutchfield striking the bottom right corner.
  • Andrew Medeiros evened the score in the 38th minute as he chased down a loose ball just outside the eighteen.  Medeiros got a foot on it before the defender and placed it well over the goaltender's reach. 
  • Five minutes into the second half, Crutchfield made a full extension diving save to keep Cesar Garcia's blast from hitting the top left corner of the net.
  • In the 75th minute Lesley had it's best chance of the second half off a free kick from about 40 yards out.   Tiago Pacheco sent a ball into the right side of the goalie box where Fabian Martinez-Sanchez connected for a header.  Gator goalkeeper, Angel Pena made a diving save on the left side of the line to keep it at a deadlock.
  • Neither side was able to net a goal in either overtime period.  The Gators held the advantage in shots 21-6, and corners 5-3 but junior Crutchfield had many top notch saves to keep his team even on the scoreboard and finish in a 1-1 tie after double overtime.


Lesley next travels to Elms College for an NECC match up on Saturday at 12pm.
