Men's Soccer Loses Overtime Heartbreaker, 2-1
Colonials Fall in Second Overtime to Duke at the Adidas Classic
Sept. 6, 2002
DURHAM, NC - George Washington men's soccer battled Duke in the second game of the Adidas Classic at Koskinen Stadium on the DU campus for 109 minutes and two overtimes, surrendering a 25-yard score to give the Blue Devils the victory with 11 seconds remaining in the period.
The Colonials (2-1) recorded their first loss of the season, despite the stellar play of freshman keeper Derek Biss who started his first match between the pipes for GW. Biss faced 40 shots through the four periods and was credited with 15 saves on the evening.
The Blue Devils (2-0-1) scored first in the match when junior Jordan Cila converted a penalty kick at 17:31 after GW defenseman Kirk Lewis was given a yellow card in the box.
GW struck back in the 36th minute, when junior forward Arnar Johannsson netted his sixth goal of the season, putting away a rebound off senior midfielder Mike Goldman's initial shot, tying the match, 1-1.
The score would remain the same for the next 73 minutes as the two teams battled to a stalemate through the end of regulation and the majority of two overtime periods. The Colonials held back the Blue Devil attack, despite having to play a man down for 46 minutes after Lewis picked up his second caution of the match at the 73:03 mark.
The Blue Devil's relentless attack would finally find a crack in the GW's armor with only 11 seconds left until the game was declared a tie, when DU defenseman Matt Ahumada rocketed a shot from outside the box into the left corner of the net, past the diving Biss.
GW faces N.C. State in their second game of the Adidas Classic on Sunday, September 8, in a 3:30 p.m. match.
