Huntingdon men’s soccer falls to Ferrum in double overtime
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Huntingdon men's soccer team looked in control early against Ferrum College on Sunday. But the Panthers turned the momentum in the second half and knocked off the Hawks 4-3 in double overtime.
Ferrum scored three times in a little more than 20 minutes to tie the game 3-3 in the second half and Asa Fox scored the game-winning goal with 47 seconds left in double overtime.
"Hats off to Ferrum, they played well and never gave up," Huntingdon men's soccer coach Timmy McCormack said. "We had a two-goal lead twice and we couldn't put the game away. That says a lot about Ferrum's team and it shows us that we still have a lot of work to do.
"I hope we learn from this experience and in the future, when we gain control of a match I want us to stay in control of the match."
The Hawks (4-6-1) jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first 24 minutes of the game. Stacy Terry scored on a Brian Martin assist in the second minute of the game. Jack Allen followed with an unassisted goal in the 23rd minute.
Ferrum (6-6-1) cut into the lead with Fox's first goal, a little more than 22 minutes into the second half. Huntingdon answered to make it 3-1 with another goal by Terry, this one on a penalty kick in the 71st minute.
From there, Ferrum began to gain control. Micah Abel scored in the 72nd minute and Aaron Gustine tied the game in the 88th minute.
Huntingdon keeper Matt Russell finished with 16 saves and four goals allowed.
The Hawks return to action on Friday at Warren Wilson.
