The University of Michigan­-Dearborn men’s soccer team (3­-6-­1) faced Indiana Institute of Technology (3­-6-­1) on Oct. 7 in a back and forth matchup that resulted in a tie after two overtimes.

The Warriors started off strong with two back-­to-back goals within two minutes of each other. The Wolverines answered right back two minutes after with a goal from freshman Adam Valentine, making it 2-­1.

A goal by Brennan Cochran at the 38th minute helped the Warriors go up 3-­1 before halftime.

After the half, the Wolverines exploded, scoring three goals. Goals by senior Alek Vasilevski, junior Michael Bojovic and sophomore Richard Hodnicki helped them obtain a 4-­3 lead.

The fourth goal for the Wolverines wasn’t enough after Zachary Aubin of the Warriors scored the game-­tying goal, making it 4­-4.

The game went into two overtimes, but the defense on both sides dominated and didn’t let up any goals.

The Warriors outshot the Wolverines 11-­6, but an impressive performance from the Wolverines goalkeeper helped them stay in the game.
