Men's Soccer and Roger Williams Play to 1-1 Double OT Draw


- Score: MIT 1, Roger Williams University 1 (2OT)

- Records: MIT (2-0-2); Roger Williams University (1-2-2)

- Location: Cambridge, Mass. (Roberts Field at Steinbrenner Stadium)

- The Lead: For the second time this season, the MIT men's soccer team played to a double overtime draw at home as tonight the Engineers drew even with Roger Williams University, 1-1, in a non-conference battle on Roberts Field.


- Roger Williams got on the board 21:09 into the match after Tyler Andrade headed home a corner kick from Connor Edwards for his second goal of the season.

- In the 65th minute MIT first-year Will Seiple (Boulder, Colo.) deposited his first collegiate goal into the right side of the net tying the match at 1-1. Sophomore Noah Faro (Rexford, N.Y.) set up the play on a long through ball from the right side of the field and then Seiple drove through the Roger Williams defenders and notched the game-tying marker.

- Less than two minutes later, the Hawks were awarded a penalty kick, however on the attempted shot by Javi Beltran, MIT keeper Jeremy Cowham (Quincy, Mass.) dove to his right keeping the match knotted at one. 

- In the 71st minute, Seiple was awarded a penalty kick, but his shot sailed over the crossbar, which eventually led to two overtime sessions tonight. MIT outshot Roger Williams 4-1 in the 20 minutes of extra time, but neither team could find the match leaving the score even at one after 110 minutes of action tonight.


- MIT held a 14-10 advantage in shots, however Roger Williams was awarded seven corner kicks compared to the two that the Engineers received.

- Cowham moved to 2-0-2 this fall for MIT as he made four saves in 110 minutes, while Roger Williams keeper Edmund Geschickter (1-2-2) stopped the ball five times for the Hawks. 

- Tonight's draw was the second between the two clubs in the all-time series that dates back to 2011. It also marked the fourth time that MIT and Roger Williams have played into overtime in the past five seasons.


- MIT is off until next Wednesday when the Engineers travel across the river for a non-conference match at Wentworth beginning at 7pm.
