Men’s Soccer Rallies from 3-1 Deficit to Win in Overtime

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The SVSU men’s soccer team came back from a two-goal deficit late in the second half to beat Aquinas College 4-3 in overtime today (Oct. 26).

Senior Larry Ferreira (London, Ont./Regina Mundi College) scored the golden goal in overtime to give the Cardinals the victory, and netted his first goal late in the second half to bring SVSU within one goal to tie. Senior Daniel Wragg (Kirton Lindsey, England/Delta College) scored with just 56 seconds left in the game to knot the score 3-3.

Senior Brandon LeBlanc (Saginaw, Mich./Delta College) got the scoring underway in the match at the 13 minute mark in the first half, which would be the Cardinals’ lone goal until the offensive explosion late in the match.

The victory improves SVSU’s record to 6-8-2 on the season, and they remain 1-6 in the GLIAC. The Cardinals will return to action at 4 p.m. Wednesday (Oct. 29) to take on Madonna University at the SVSU Soccer Complex.
