BANGOR, Maine – Husson University (0-0-1) and Wentworth Institute of Technology (0-0-1) dueled to a 1-1 tie through double overtime in both teams’ 2018 season opener at John P. Boucher Field on Friday afternoon.

HOW IT HAPPENED:

Wentworth broke the scoreless stalemate with an impressive individual effort by Noah Martins, who received a lateral pass from Nathan Gosselin, and unleashed a shot that snuck just inside the left post at the 30:53 mark.

The Eagles scored the equalizer in the 62nd minute, when Ali Essallamy buried a penalty kick after a Husson player was fouled in the box.

In overtime, both teams had a handful of close scoring chances, but neither team could land the winning goal.

THE KEEPERS:

Kyle Townsend made six saves in net for the Eagles.

Wentworth netminder Philip Chomicki recorded five saves.

TEAM STATS:

Wentworth held advantage in shots (20-11), shots on goal (7-6) and in corner kicks (8-5). The Eagles fended off the Leopards for the remaining 69:23 of the game while playing a man down.

COACHES QUOTE:

“Can’t speak highly enough of the character we showed as a team today,” slated head coach Gavin Penny. “Our determination and grit to succeed came through in the end and we earned a well deserved point. It’s a shame that poor decisions change games and one that we had to deal with today. To go that long with ten men against a top team in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) I think illustrates what we are able to accomplish this year. We are still nursing a few injuries but we’ll be ready for Becker’s arrival tomorrow afternoon. All in all I am proud of every one of them.”

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING:

This contest marks the first ever matchup on the pitch between the Eagles and the Leopards.

NEXT!

Husson returns to action tomorrow with a 3:00 p.m. home game versus Becker College.
