Friday story

No. 8-ranked Claremont-Mudd-Scripps scored the game-winning goal off a corner kick 16 minutes into sudden-death overtime to edge St. Thomas 2-1 Friday night in non-conference men's soccer play in Claremont, Calif.

The Athenas (3-2), a 15-win team last season, scored in the 15th minute. The Tommies used a dramatic goal by freshman Isaac Eckroth in the 87th minute, assisted by Ethan Andersen, to tie the game.

After a scoreless first overtime, Claremont buried the winning goal midway through the second OT session.

It was the fourth consecutive overtime game for the Tommies (1-2-2) resulting in two losses and two ties.

St. Thomas closes the California trip with a Sunday game against Redlands.
