Fort Wayne, Ind. – The Indiana Tech men’s soccer team saw its season come to an end on Saturday night, suffering a heartbreaking 2-1 double overtime loss to Marygrove College in the WHAC Tournament Quarterfinals played at Warrior Field.
The 5th-seeded Mustangs scored the game-winning goal in the 105th minute to eliminate the 4th-seeded Warriors from the tournament.
Marygrove took a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute, but the Warriors evened the score 10 minutes later after a penalty kick by senior Bryce Collier (Springfield, MO/Crowder).
The score would remain that way after 90 minutes and the match would head to overtime.
In the second extra period, Marygrove’s Abdoullie Jallow sent a cross in to Jordan Berry, who got behind the Warrior defense. Tech keeper Reece Richardson (Halifax, England/Ryburn Valley) came out to make a play on the pass and got his hands on the ball, but couldn’t get control of it with Berry right on top of him. Berry would gather the loose ball and send it into the open net for the win.
Richardson finished the night with four saves.
Marygrove held a slight edge in shots with 16 compared to Tech’s 14 while the teams had three corner kicks apiece.
Indiana Tech ended the season with a 10-6-3 record and finished in fourth place in the WHAC. It was the fourth straight 10-win season for the Warriors.
