#20 Tartans Drop 2OT Contest at #5 Kenyon, 2-1

(GAMBIER, Ohio) – The 20th-ranked Carnegie Mellon University men's soccer team forced overtime at 5th-ranked Kenyon College Friday, September 1 but were defeated by the Lords by a golden goal in the 107th minute in the season opener for both teams.

The equalizer for the Tartans came with less than two minutes remaining when senior Jimmy Jameson (Fairfax, Va. / Oakton) connected on a header that went over the Ian McInturf in goal for the Lords. The shot was the sixth of the period for the Tartans and came shortly after a shot by junior Zack Masciopinto (Arlington Heights, Ill. / Buffalo Grove) went wide.

The Lords took the lead in the 50th minute when Brice Koval's shot from the left side made it past junior Alec Lam (Upper Saddle River, N.J. / Northern Highlands Regional) to the far corner.

Carnegie Mellon had a corner kick and two shots in the first overtime but couldn't get a shot in for the win pushing the game to the final 10-minute session.

After a corner kick by Greg McNeer, the Lords put in the game winner when Oliver Wynn finished a rebound off a defender.

The Tartans return to action on Sunday, September 3 at home against Denison University at 2:00 p.m.
