Your Crusaders traveled to Brownwood to take on NCAA DIII Howard Payne University on Thursday. Despite missing four starters for various reasons, they came out with the Win in the second over-time period. After going down 1-0 early in the first half, Paul Luckey evened the score at 1-1 with a perfect penalty kick mid way through the second half. Neither team was able to find the net the rest of the way through regulation time. This sent the match into two 10-minute over-time periods of Golden Goal (Sudden Death). 18 seconds into the second over-time period, Adrian Mendoza scored the game winner with an amazing shot off Cameron Boyd’s assist.
With a steady rain falling throughout the match, it was a difficult test for both teams. Your Crusaders dug deep and prevailed!
