The Florida Atlantic University menís soccer team came from behind to win 3-2 against the UNF Ospreys in overtime on Sunday afternoon. The Owls have won their last five home matches and improved their record for the season to 5-0-1.
UNF proved to be one of FAUís fiercest competitors so far this season as both teams entered the match 4-0-1. After 105 minutes of play and three goals, the Owls defeat of UNF gave the Ospreys their first loss of the season despite their 13-8 shooting advantage.
The first shot of the game, taken by UNF in the fourth minute, slipped past FAU goalkeeper Theo Jamilloux and was headed for the net when it was quickly blocked by an Owl defender. Shortly after, Jason Fitzgerald tallied the first shot for FAU which was blocked, but then an own goal scored by UNF put FAU on the board with a 1-0 lead.
In the following 20 minutes, FAU held UNFís offensive attack, only allowing one shot that went wide while the Owls recorded a shot and three corner kicks. However, after a foul on FAU, the Ospreys were awarded a direct free kick outside the box that was deflected off a home team player into the goal, tying the game at one.
Shots were taken by Jason Garcia and Fitzgerald, who led the Owls in shot attempts, but FAU was unable to beat UNFís offense before the end of the first period. UNF capitalized on its offensive opportunities early in the second period as FAU surrendered an assisted goal, shot low into the left corner, in the 56th minute of regulation.
The Owls struggled to get in front of the goal in the second period, taking only two shots and one corner kick compared to UNFís seven and four, respectively. Two high shots over the goal by UNF kept the game score at 2-1 with the Owls at risk of their first defeat this season.
After 72 minutes of play, junior Deniz Bozkurt, FAUís second-ranked scorer, entered the game for the first time. With four minutes left in the period, a foul on UNF awarded the Owls with a penalty kick that Bozkurt converted, allowing FAU the chance to defeat the Ospreys in overtime.
UNF won the coin toss, receiving the kick-off in overtime. A foul on the Ospreys just moments into overtime led to FAUís first attempt to take the win. Cole Juavanie gained possession of the ball, but shot wide outside the goal.
Earning a second foul in the 98th minute, UNFís fight for victory came to an end as FAU was awarded its second penalty kick. Leading-scorer Ryan Price captured his sixth goal for the season, giving FAU the win, 3-2. Price is ranked at the top of the conference in game-winning goals.
FAU remains in first place in Conference USA with its fifth win in a row. Jamilloux tallied four saves and gave up two goals compared to UNFís one save and three goals allowed. The freshman is 5-0-1 this season and is ranked first in the conference for total saves and saves per game.
The Owls have a bye week before traveling to Birmingham, Ala. to play their second conference opponent of the season, the University of Alabama Birmingham Blazers on Oct. 6 at 2:30 p.m. The Blazers are ranked second in the conference with a 4-1-1 record overall and a single tie in conference play.
