Hampden-Sydney earned a point in the ODAC standings via a 1-1 draw with the second-place Bridgewater College Eagles on Saturday afternoon.

THE BASICS

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Defense had the upper hand in the first half as neither team registered a shot on goal until the 43rd minute and both finished with only one shot on target in the opening stanza
  • Bridgewater struck first with a Patrick Peach header goal assisted by Jacob Heiston at 48:37
  • Both teams had numerous chances, but timely defensive plays and strong goalkeeper performances limited both squads
  • Bridgewater was less than a minute away from having a win wrapped up when a series of headers in the box by both teams resulted in Eli Strong heading the ball to Spell Carr on a loose ball and he sent it inside the right post with 41.6 left on the clock to send the game to overtime
  • Hampden-Sydney controlled overtime, outshooting Bridgewater 7-0, but was unable to find the back of the net
