Krotz's First Career Goal Leads Mustangs to 2-1 OT Win Versus Arcadia
OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Stevenson men's soccer freshman Daniel Krotz (Crofton, Md./Mount Saint Joseph) scored his first career goal on a blast from the left corner of the 18 into the upper left corner of the goal to give the Mustangs a 2-1 overtime victory versus Arcadia Saturday at Mustang Stadium.
The game marked the sixth one-goal game of the season for Stevenson (6-7, 1-2 MAC) who picked up its first win in the Commonwealth Conference. The team is 2-4 in games decided by one goal this season.
The Mustangs held a 14-9 advantage in shots, but trailed 1-0 after Zach Todd scored his second goal of the season on a penalty kick in the 66th minute to give the Knights (4-4-2, 1-2 MAC) the game's first lead.
However, Stevenson would tie the game on a penalty kick of its own in the 73rd minute as junior Christopher Panian (Monkton, Md./John Carroll) netted his team-leading fifth goal of the season.
Neither team would be able to get the game-winner in the final 17 minutes of regulation until Krotz scored just 1:02 into overtime to give the Mustangs their first win in three overtime games this season.
Over the last two seasons, Stevenson is 3-2-1 in six overtime contests.
Freshman Kenneth Hersey (Clarksville, Md./Atholton) made three saves to improve his record to 2-3 in five starts this season. His counterpart, Ryan Lantzy, made five saves for the Knights.
The Mustangs face Widener on Tuesday in the first of back-to-back road games for Stevenson. Game time is at 7:00 p.m.
