The Westminster Men’s Soccer team heads home from Arkansas after a devastating 1-2 double overtime loss to the Eagles of the University of the Ozarks.  They are now 0-2 in play. "It was a quick turnaround for the guys. We played last night at 7:00, turned around and played at 1:00 today. On top of that, it was extremely hot outside. It was tough conditions for the guys, but I am extremely proud of them. They had fight in them and never gave up," said Coach Bordelon.

The game was scoreless until just five minutes left in the game; freshman Peter Gerber (San Pedro Sula /EIS) hit a rocket from 35 yards out. The ball was on the Blue Jay’s side of the field in the last minute of the game, and after several shot attempts, the Eagles were able to score. The game then headed into overtime. The first overtime was scoreless and the Blue Jays were held to only two shots, but four minutes into the second overtime, the Eagles were able to put the final number on the board.

The Blue Jays finished with eight shots on goal out of their eleven shots. Senior Michael McDonough (St. Louis, Mo. /DeSmet Jesuit) and junior Connor Hollrah (Columbia, Mo. /Hickman) led the Blue Jays with two shots on goal each. Junior Caleb Marquis (Moberly, Mo. /Moberly) had five saves.

The Blue Jays will head to Jacksonville, Ill. next Sunday, September 8, to play Illinois College at 12:00 p.m.
