Tommie Sports - Men's Soccer

M. Soccer ties Pipers

1-1 2OT
Hamline (M), October 06, 2013

Sophomore Miles Stockman-Willis scored his 10th goal of the season, shooting over the keeper in the 63rd minute, as the host Tommies played to a 1-1 tie with Hamline in two overtimes in Saturday’s MIAC men’s soccer game at South Field.

Hamline scored a breakaway goal in the game’s seventh minute. Stockman-Willis tied the game midway through the second half, and now has scored a goal in five consecutive games.

St. Thomas (8-1-3 overall, 3-0-2 MIAC) pushed its unbeaten streak to 11. Despite its 13-4 advantage in corner kicks and an 8-5 edge in shots on goal, UST couldn’t get the tie-breaking tally.

"Hamline came out with a lot of emotion and capitalized on a defensive error," said UST coach Jon Lowery. "Once the game settled we created numerous chances but failed to finish the job. Credit to Hamline for holding on and getting the tie. We will learn from it and begin preparations for the leaders in our conference, Gustavus."

The Toms are home Oct. 12 to play the Gusties.
