Soccer: 2nd half goals lead LWC men to OT tie at NW Ohio
By Christopher Webster
Lima, OH - A pair of goals by Moussa Gueye and Nathaniel Onyina Opoku led the No. 16-ranked Lindsey Wilson men's soccer team to a 2-2 tie against No. 23-ranked Northwestern Ohio at Racer Soccer Field on Saturday.
The Blue Raiders (1-1-1, 0-0 MSC) recorded seven shots compared to the Racers (1-2-1, 0-0 WHAC) 13.
Both teams fought for scoring chances in the first half. Opoku attempted to put the Blue Raiders ahead in the 2nd minute as he put a shot on goal, however a great save by Northwestern Ohio goalkeeper Rafael Lima kept the contest scoreless early. In the 9th minute, a similar opportunity presented itself for the Racers, but Blue Raiders goalkeeper David Coffey deflected a shot by Vilhelm Vidorsson to keep the match tied at zero.
Northwestern Ohio opened the scoring just before halftime as Vidorsson put the Racers out in front 1-0 in the 40th minute. The Racers attempted to add to their lead as a shot from Cameron Power was too high in the 43rd minute and the Blue Raiders went into halftime trailing by a goal.
The Racers put pressure on the Blue Raiders early in the second half as they looked to double their lead on a penalty kick by Ivan Tadic in the 49th minute, however Coffey denied Northwestern Ohio to keep the score 1-0.
Lindsey Wilson found the equalizer they were searching for in the 55th minute as Alexander Koziolek recorded his second assist of the season after linking up with Gueye for the first goal of his career, tying the match up at one.
The Racers jumped back out in front on a goal by Lucas Vazquez in the 58th minute. The Blue Raiders only trailed less than a minute as Opoku tied the contest with his first goal of the season. Lindsey Wilson had an opportunity to seal the game in the 88th minute on a header by Opoku but the shot was high, and regulation ended with teams tied at two.
Fatigue started to creep in for both teams in both overtime periods as only two shots were attempted, and the match resulted in a 2-2 tie.
The Blue Raiders return to action as they host Shawnee State (OH) to open Mid-South Conference play on September 21 at Walter S. Reuling Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 7pmCT.
