Keuka uses overtime to snatch win from Morrisville State men

KEUKA PARK, N.Y. – Fourth seed Keuka College scored the game winner just 3:06 into the overtime period to hand visiting and fifth seed Morrisville State College the heartbreaking 2-1 overtime loss in the quarterfinal round of the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) men’s soccer tournament Tuesday night in Keuka Park.

Erik Whitcombe (Ogdensburg, NY) broke the scoreless tie in the 70th minute to give the Mustangs the one goal advantage, but a costly foul in the box led to a converted Keuka penalty kick to knot the game at one.

Jack Reece put the game winner past Morrisville State keeper Shane Sullivan (Sherrill, NY) 93:06 in to advance Keuka to the semifinal round against top seed SUNY IT on Saturday.

Sullivan made eight stops in the contest for Morrisville State, who concludes their season with an 8-8-1 overall record.
