WEST POINT, N.Y. -
Mike Reidy tallied the game-winning goal less than two minutes into the first overtime as Colgate defeated Army, 1-0, in a Patriot League men's soccer match Saturday evening at Clinton Field.
Reidy corralled the ball inside the box and fired a shot from 14 yards out past Army sophomore goalkeeper Winston Boldt for his league-leading seventh goal of the season. The unassisted marker, which was scored at the 91:59 mark, moved Colgate (4-5-5, 2-0-2 PL) into a tie for first place in the Patriot League standings.
Army (3-8-1, 0-3-1 PL) held a 13-11 edge in shots, but the Black Knights were unable to get anything past Colgate goalkeeper Liam Stapleton, who made two saves to post his first shutout of the season.
"We were in it throughout, and we gave ourselves a lot of chances," said Army head coach Russell Payne. "I thought we defended a lot better than we did last Saturday against American. We definitely gave Colgate fewer offensive looks. They are a tough team defensively, but we were able to generate some chances. We weren't able to find the back of the net, but it was anybody's game. Unfortunately, we didn't make a play at a crucial time and they capitalized on it."
One of Army's best scoring chances came in the 21st minute when senior forward Trent Brown had his shot saved by Stapleton. The rebound caromed to sophomore midfielder Kyle Golonski, who unleashed a shot that was blocked by the Colgate defense. That rebound bounced to freshman midfielder Parker Dixon, who fired a shot just high of the cage.
Colgate's best chance to score in regulation came in the 64th minute when Tanner Schilling's blast from just outside the box was tipped by Boldt and rattled off the crossbar.
Golonski fired a team-high four shots to pace Army's 13-shot attack. Shane Conlin was credited with a game-high five shots to lead Colgate's offense.
Colgate held a 6-3 edge in corner kicks. Boldt (3-8-1) finished with four saves for the Black Knights.
Army resumes its Patriot League schedule on Saturday, Oct. 20, when the Black Knights travel to Lewisburg, Pa., to face Bucknell. The conference match is slated to get under way at 7 p.m.
