Men’s Soccer Drops 3-2 OT Decision to Emory

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Birmingham-Southern men's soccer team fell to Emory University 3-2 in overtime Tuesday night on Goldfarb Field after scoring two goals in the final 15 minutes of regulation.  It marked the Panthers first home loss this season.  They moved to 7-3 overall on the year.


Emory (6-3) opened scoring in the 22nd minute and scored their second goal two minutes later.  They went into the break ahead 2-0.


The Panthers earned a penalty kick with 15:21 on the clock.  Dallas Coyne (Vestavia Hills, Ala./Vestavia Hills HS) sent it to the top left corner of the goal to put BSC on the board.


With under 5:30 to play, the Panthers got a free kick at the top of the box, but Coyne sent it high.


They got another opportunity after a yellow card against Emory.  On a pass from Patrick Erickson (Washington, D.C./St. Stephens & St. Agnes School) with less than a minute to play, Dylan Rose (Brentwood, Tenn./Ravenwood HS) sent a low roller to the left side of the net from the left side of the box, tying the game.


The Panthers defended for the final seconds and sent the game into overtime.


BSC was on the defensive for most of the overtime, getting off just one shot.  With 30 seconds left, Emory earned a corner and capitalized on a set piece to score the game winner.


Marvin Castellanos (Vestavia Hills, Ala./Stetson University) spent the full 99:31 in goal.  He finished with a match-high four saves.


The Panthers hit the road next for a two-game conference showdown.  They face Centre on Friday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET and then head to take on Sewanee at 2:30 p.m. CT.
