Billikens Fall to Fairleigh Dickinson in NCAA Tournament
ST. LOUIS - Fairleigh Dickinson's Jack McVey scored in the 103rd minute to lift the Knights to a 2-1, double overtime victory against the Saint Louis Billikens Sunday in an NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championship second-round matchup at Hermann Stadium.
SLU ends its season at 16-5, the most wins by a Billiken squad since the 2001 team won 18 games. FDU (11-5-6) advances to face the winner of UMBC and North Carolina next weekend in the third round of the NCAA Championship.
McVey's golden goal came at the 102:43 mark. Antony Moore had the ball on the right side, and he lofted a ball into the box that found McVey, who headed it from approximately 12 yards and into the upper right corner.
It was the only shot of the overtime session for FDU. The Billikens seemed to control play in the first overtime period, registering two shots.
After a scoreless first half, the Knights opened the scoring when Jan Aubert scored at the 55:51 mark. He connected on a Moore pass to make it 1-0 FDU.
The Billikens continued to press and broke through in the 73rd minute on a goal by Robbie Kristo. William Hidalgo and Jon Roeckle played the ball to Kristo, who headed it into the upper left corner for the equalizer.
SLU out-shot the Knights 12-9 and held a 7-1 advantage in corner kicks. SLU goalie Nick Shackelford made fives saves, including several sensational stops in the first half to keep the game scoreless.
