BEVERLY, Mass. – The Endicott men's soccer team hosted Trinity (Conn.) on Wednesday night in Hempstead Stadium and were handed a close 2-1 overtime loss.
The Gulls struck first in the 10th minute of the contest when Max Robbins (Longmeadow, Mass.) sent a pass to Bobby Ivatts (Walpole, Mass.), who then crossed to Evan Couchot (Mason, Ohio). Couchot was able to gather the ball in front of the net and shoot past the Trinity netminder.
Endicott continued to control play for the rest of the first half and start of the second, but the Bantams were able to tie the game at 1-1 on a tally from Max Cottrell (Dover, Mass.) at the 78:31 mark.

With just under six minutes remaining in the overtime period, Trinity's Henry Farr (Philadelphia, Pa.) found the back of the net to give the Bantams their first win of the season.
