WILDER, Ky. - Frederico
Moojen scored three goals - including the winning tally 2:54 into
the second overtime - as the Lincoln Memorial men’s soccer
team rallied to stun Northern Kentucky University, 3-2, at the Town
& Country Sports Complex on Saturday.
Leonardo de Barros sent
a corner kick into the box, where Moojen met the ball in the air
and sent a header past NKU goalie Jeremy Curington for the winner
at the 102:54 mark. The Railsplitters - who trailed 2-0 with 12
minutes remaining in regulation - improved to 1-0 and ruined NKU’s
season opener in the John Toebben Classic, presented by National
NKU took a 1-0 lead
at the 32:36 mark when freshman Daniel Ertel took a cross from Tony
Ray and scored his first collegiate goal. The Norse increased their
advantage to 2-0 in the 69th minute on freshman Jim Delaney’s
first career goal that was assisted by Andrew Leconey.
Moojen, however, chipped
in an unassisted goal at the 78:52 mark to bring Lincoln Memorial
within 2-1. He later tied the contest at 2-2 with a penalty kick
in the 83rd minute after a foul in the penalty box.
Earlier in the second
half, Moojen had attempted a penalty kick that Curington blocked
to preserve a 2-0 NKU lead.
NKU will meet Mercyhurst
- a 2-0 loser to Bellarmine on Saturday - at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
