Taylor nips HU in double overtime

Playing some of their best ball of the year, the Foresters took Taylor to double overtime but couldn't come away with the win. The Trojans recorded the 2-1 victory to keep HU winless in the conference.

With Taylor's leading scorer going down early in the match, Huntington took control of the first half outshooting Taylor 6-3. Unfortunately the Foresters weren't able to capitalize on any of their scoring opportunities and headed into halftime empty handed.

Five minutes into the second half Taylor scored to go up 1-0. The Trojan momentum continued as a Forester player picked up his second yellow card of the match forcing Huntington to play the remainder of the game a man down.

The Foresters pulled together and continued to pressure Taylor. HU's persistence finally paid off at the 70:47 mark when Adam McLaughlin tied things up off an assist from Taylor Zeman. With the scored tied 1-1 at the end of regulation, the game headed to overtime.

Four minutes into the second overtime Taylor's leading scorer, who had returned to the contest 20 minutes earlier, netted the game-winning goal dashing the Forester hopes of their first conference win.

The Foresters outshot the Trojans 15-9. Keeper Kevin Keske recorded 5 saves.

With this loss, the Foresters drop to 8-5 on the season, 0-4 in conference. Huntington will travel to #10 Bethel College on Wednesday.
