Men’s college soccer
Ancilla scores wins over Owens and NJCAA No. 2 Cincinnati State
Freshman striker Manny Awuku scored match-winning goals on consecutive days as the Ancilla College men’s soccer team topped Owens Community College 2-1 on Saturday and NJCAA No. 2 Cincinnati State Technical and Community College 1-0 in overtime on Sunday.
The Chargers (3-1-0, 3-1-0 Region 12) trailed 1-0 on Saturday after Owens (1-2-0, 0-2-0 Region 12) striker David Ortega-Gonzalez pounced on a turnover deep in Ancilla’s defensive third and finished past Pedro Hernandez in the 48th minute.
Ancilla equalized 20 minutes later when JaCoby Smith fought off two Owens defenders and slotted home a pass from Awuku to make it 1-1.
Awuku would put the finishing touches on the match in the 73rd minute, converting a through ball from Yordan Rivera to give Ancilla the 2-1 victory.
Alex Howe and Hernandez combined to make nine saves in the victory.
On Sunday, the Chargers claimed their first victory over a nationally-ranked opponent in program history, defeating last year’s national runner-up Cincinnati State 1-0 in overtime. More impressively, Ancilla did it while playing a man down for nearly 60 minutes.
Despite receiving a red card in only the 42nd minute of the match, Ancilla limited Cincinnati State (1-3-0, 1-3-0 Region 12) to just two shots on goal and forced the scoreless match into extra time.
In the 99th minute, Awuku finally broke free on a through ball from Smith and slid the ball past Cincinnati keeper Ben Steinnecker for the golden goal.
Howe collected two saves, earning his first clean sheet on the season.
Ancilla returns to action on Saturday when they travel to Kirtland, Ohio, for the Lakeland Community College Invitational. The Chargers will kick off against the hosts on Saturday at 2 p.m. followed by Sunday’s 1 p.m. match against Cuyahoga Community College.
