On Saturday, Oct. 10, the men’s soccer team played a double overtime game against Post University and finished with a 1-1 tie. After a scoreless 45 minutes, the Pioneers got on the board first in the 67th minute. Sophomore midfielder, Harry Pearse, sent a lead pass to sophomore forward, Jason Lampkin, who beat the keeper to give LIU to the 1-0 lead.
However, the Eagles from Post University responded, and in the 83rd minute, scored on a header from a corner kick. In the overtime sessions, both teams had their opportunities, but neither was able to connect for a goal and the victory. The 1-1 score stood.
Head Coach Andreas Lindberg and his team return to action on Saturday, Oct. 17, when they welcome Mercy College to LIU Post. Open- ing kick is set for 2:30 p.m.
