Box Score

BELMONT, NC -- The Lincoln Memorial University men's soccer team went to overtime for the third consecutive match Wednesday afternoon, but were unable to come out on the winning side as they fell 3-2 in overtime to the Crusaders of Belmont Abbey.

With the loss, the Railsplitters fall to 1-2-1 on the season.

In the first half, the Crusaders took the early lead with a goal by Conor Wells at the 26 minute mark. Ross Smith was credited with the assist. This would fall as the only goal in the first half as Belmont Abbey took a 1-0 lead into intermission.

LMU would quickly answer in the second half as Callum Home was able to tie the score in the 50th minute using a penalty kick, which came after an Belmont Abbey foul in the right side of the box. Home's shot beat keeper Louis Liberatore into the right corner.
 
In the 65th minute, the Crusaders regained the lead with an unassisted goal by Timmi Borges Da Silva.  Borges Da Silva intercepted a Railsplitter pass near midfield and raced down the right sideline. After beating two defenders, he moved inside towards the goal. Goalkeeper Michael Watkins came out to challenge Da Silva, but he swerved around him and lashed a left-footed blast into the center of the empty net.

The Railsplitters regained their composure and tied the game again with a goal in the 75th minute by Mario Pinto. After he stepped in front of a failed Crusaders clearance, Burnett dribbled to his left and rocketed a shot past Liberatore for the equalizer. This would fall as the final goal in regulation as the game would head to overtime at a 2-2 tie.

Belmont Abbey would go on to win in overtime with a goal by John Dandanell in the 95th minute as Jack Reid gained possession of a loose ball 30 yards from the LMU goal, chipped a pass over the top of the defense to Da Sliva, who one timed a cross to the center of the net, where Dandanell beat two Railsplitter defenders and volleyed home the winner as he was knocked to the ground.

The Railsplitters will look to rebound from this loss as they open South Atlantic Conference play on Saturday, September 17th as Newberry College travels to town. That game is scheduled for a 4 p.m. start.
