Bobcats fall in double overtime to Erskine

BANNER ELK, N.C. – The Lees-McRae College Men's soccer team fell Saturday night to Erskine by a score of 3-2. With the loss, Lees-McRae is now 1-3-1 on the season.

The match was certainly tight until the very end, with the Bobcats and Flying Fleeting playing a double overtime affair on Saturday. Goals by Johannes Oeksnevad and Harvey McMorrow were the highlight of the night. Both of those goals were their first of the year. Matt Law would register the assist on the Oeksnevad goal with a square ball put back into the box for the tap in. Oeksnevad also got into the passing action, providing a drop back pass to McMorrow before his shot rattled off the post and found the back of the net. 

Anton Sundstrom would again get the start in goal for the Bobcats. Sundstrom made 7 saves on 10 shots faced with the biggest coming in a penalty save early on in the match.

The Bobcats will return to action next Wednesday when they take on Tusculum on the road. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m.
