Ancilla’s men’s soccer team opened the second weekend of play, hosting Muskegon Community College last Saturday, falling in the second overtime period 3-2.
Muskegon opened the scoring on an own goal. Dominic Harris capitalized off of some nice combination play from midfielder Juan Delgado and striker Manny Awuku that sprung Harris, and he finished the play to tie the game up 1-1 going into halftime.
Muskegon’s Kody Harrel scored in the 52nd minute after Eric Hilt slotted a ball to the box. Ancilla did not back down, and Ignacio Avilles hit a first time shot from 20 yards out to bring the Chargers back. But Nathan Brouard turned a second chance opportunity into the game-winner in double overtime to put Muskegon over the top.
Rene Mejia played well and made 11 saves on the day.
