Virginia Wesleyan was called for a foul in the box and JP Reategui converted the penalty kick attempt in the 94th minute to defeat the Marlins, the Tigers first win over VWU since 2006.

THE BASICS

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Both teams got several dangerous chances in regulation but were unable to put on the final touches due to timely defensive plays and impressive diving saves from the goalkeepers
  • VWU's Ricky Perrault nearly notched a goal in the 85th minute but saw his shot go off the crossbar
  • Tigers were the aggressors in overtime and a Virginia Wesleyan player fouled in the box to give up the game-winning penalty kick

COACH DINUZZO'S COMMENTS

  • "We're proud of the effort the guys put in tonight and we knew it was going to be a difficult game from the start. We thought our depth showed once again though and when our subs came on in both halves it gave us a lift. Excellent team win and now we shift our focus to E&H."
