LEWISTON, Maine — First-year Peder Bakken scored his first career goal on an assist from sophomore Drew Munoz but the Bates men’s soccer team fell to Connecticut College in double overtime by a score of 2-1 Saturdayafternoon at Russell Street Field.
Bates (3-6-2, 1-6-1 NESCAC) out-shot the Camels (8-2, 4-2 NESCAC) 12-10 in the narrow loss.
Unfortunately for the Bobcats, the game-winning goal for the Camels came only two minutes and 55 seconds into the second overtime period, with Pat Devlin scoring unassisted for the second time in the match to give Connecticut College the win.
The Camels didn’t record a shot until the 10th minute of action when Brooks Clark got denied by sophomore goalkeeper Robbie Montanaro, who made a pair of saves on the day.
The Bobcats recorded their first shot on goal in the 13th minute of action when senior Peabo Knoth let one fly. Connecticut College goalkeeper Mark Cameron recorded the save though, one of three on the day for him.
In the 18th minute, Bates nearly got on the board when senior captain Luke McNabb hit the crossbar on his attempt.
Then in the 38th minute, Munoz and Bakken made their mark when the sophomore backer notched the first assist of his career on Bakken’s first goal of his career.
The Camels brought in Devlin in the 74th minute and he tallied the equalizer soon-after.
In the 78th minute, Devlin got a penalty kick opportunity and converted, tallying his 10th goal of the season and knotting the match at one.
A DiBenedetto header attempt went wide in the 86th minute, the last shot attempt Bates recorded in regulation.
The first overtime ended with the match still tied at one as a couple shots by the Camels missed in the final two minutes.
But Devlin struck again for his 11th goal of the year in the 103rd minute to give the Camels the win.
