MARION, Ind. – Indiana Wesleyan men’s soccer controlled most of the tempo Friday night, but three late goals kept things interesting in a 2-1 win over Indiana Tech. Indiana Tech struck first with 14 minutes remaining in regulation, but a Glauber Oliveira free kick from 23 yards out with seven minutes remaining would force overtime.

It wouldn’t take long in extra time, as Filipe Mendonca knocked in his fourth goal in two days giving IWU the win.

BY THE NUMBERS

  • Oliveria served up the corner in the 93rd minute that gave Mendonca the opportunity for the goal.
  • IWU has collected nine assists and seven goals in their first three games of the season.
  • Freshman Aaron Carrearned his second win of the season in 90 minutes of action with 17 saves.

SANFORD PERSPECTIVE

  • What a game. So proud of the guy’s composure and toughness to not throw in the towel after going down in a game I felt we were controlling. We stayed patient and in the end, it was set pieces that won it. Glauber’s free-kick was absolutely top class and the guys executed on our corner kick so well. We had amazing support again. If I’m an IWU supporter I’d keep coming to games. I think they’re only going to get more fun to watch.

WHAT’S NEXT

  • IWU heads on the road for their next two matches, facing IU East on September 4 and #19 Olivet Nazarene on September 7.
