HERRIMAN, UTAH – The Eastern Florida State College men’s soccer team opened the regular season with a thrilling win over No. 9 Snow College in overtime Thursday in Herriman, Utah.

Freshman Sam Bayly took a pass from Luke Sexton and slotted it into the corner of the goal for the game-winner four minutes and 15 seconds into the first overtime to lift the Titans to a 2-1 victory in overtime at Zion Bank Stadium.

Snow College came out of the gates fast and scored in the first two minutes of the contest to take a 1-0 lead.

The Titans came out in the second half looking stronger, outshooting the Badgers 9-3 in the second half. But a penalty in the box with 9:44 remaining gave Rolando Onu a shot to tie it. He blasted a shot into the upper corner of the net to tie the game.

It looked like Eastern Florida State College may get a chance to win it in regulation after a penalty right outside the box in the final seconds, but time ran out before the Titans could get the kick-off, sending the game to overtime.

The Titans had both shots in the overtime period and improved to 1-0 in a game that saw 10 yellow cards and a red card issued.

“Really love the effort of the team today getting a big win over Snow College that is very deserving of their number 9 ranking,” Eastern Florida State College men’s soccer coach Jeff Carr said. (EFSC image)
