Eagles lose in overtime to Saints
NEW ULM — In a game in which the New Ulm boys’ soccer team controlled and led most of the way, St. Peter scored a late goal to force overtime and got the eventual game-winner in the first overtime session as St. Peter defeated New Ulm 3-2 in Big South Conference boys’ soccer at New Ulm High School.
St. Peter’s Ken Ringler scored the eventual game-winning goal in the first overtime session with 3:05 left to put St. Peter ahead 3-2. The Saints improved to 7-5-1 overall and 5-3-1 in the Big South.
New Ulm’s Wyatt Huard scored twice in the first half and now has 26 goals on the season. His first goal came with 24:01 left in the half off an assist from Rob Rauh and it tied the game at 1-1.
Seven minutes later, Huard scored again, this time off of a crossfield pass from Brandon Ocampo to give the Eagles a 2-1 lead, a lead they took into halftime.
With New Ulm leading 2-1 late in the second half, St. Peter’s Rafat Solaiman picked up a rebound off of New Ulm goalkeeper Matthew Janke and put it back in the net to tie the game at 2-2. Huard had an opportunity to score late, but his shot just went wide left and it went into overtime.
Janke had 14 saves for New Ulm (5-4-3, 4-3-2 Big South). New Ulm hosts Worthington at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
