Men's soccer game ends in tie after 2 overtimes at VTC
Paul Smith's men's soccer team played above and beyond the call of competition by making an outstanding effort on the Vermont Technical College field, after arriving with only 15 minutes to warm-up prior to the start of the game as the officials refused to allow any additional time.
VTC scored with 10:34 left in the first half with a crossing pass across the goal and a shot into the net after a PSC player was forced to the ground. Twenty-four seconds later PSC's Jeff Lanschwager took a free kick from approximately 60 yards out and hit the VTC net over the outstretched arms of the goalie tying the score at one apiece.
The scored stayed tied through double overtime with both teams having opportunities, but unable to strike for a winning goal. Paul Smith's midfield of Miles Gifford, Robert Cashion, Max Kreuger, and Jim Hartwell contained the VTC attack thru the center of the field while the back line of Jeff Langschwager, Kyle Reidman, Evan Utter, and Richard Odums continually stopped the potent attack of VTC's top scorers. Throughout the game, Paul Smith's frontline of Kamaruzaman Mohammed and Michael Hall along with Anthony Wolcott coming off the bench kept VTC's defense in the back field and unable to assist their attack. In addition, Ryan Turgeon assisted the PSC defense with his outstanding outside-midfield play.
Coach Martinez was extremely pleased with his players effort.
