Men Fall in Overtime at Buena Vista
STORM LAKE, Iowa - The MLC men's soccer team lost 2-1 in overtime Thursday night in a non-conference game at Buena Vista.
The Knights jumped out to a lead in the 29th minute of the first half, scoring off a corner kick that a Buena Vista defender knocked into his own goal.
MLC held onto that one-goal lead until the 64th minute, when BV's Steve Gutschenritter scored to tie the game.
After regulation ended in a 1-1 tie, Gutschenritter ended the game with a goal in the third minute of overtime past MLC goalkeeper Ben Zietlow.
Zietlow finished the game with four saves for the Knights. Steve White, Ben Nommensen and Stephen Roekle each had one shot on goal for MLC.
With the loss, MLC dropped to 0-3 on the season with the loss, while BV improved to 1-2 with the win.
The Knights will return to action Sunday, September 11, when they host Wisconsin Lutheran College in a game scheduled to begin at 3 p.m.
