WENHAM, Mass. — The Endicott men's soccer team traveled to Gordon College for a Commonwealth Coast Conference matchup and the Gulls came away with a close 3-2 overtime win.
The Gulls found the back of the net first when Alex Vuksta (Hudson, Ohio) collected a rebounded save and tapped the ball past Gordon netminder Wesley Sprague (Naperville, Ill.).
The Fighting Scots responded shortly after when Noah Craig (Corvallis, Ore.) cut the deficit to 2-1 heading into halftime.
Just over midway through the second half, Gordon tied the game up at 2-2 with a tally from Luckson Dambo (Belmont, Mass.).
Both teams saw several scoring chances throughout the remainder of regulation but neither was able to find the go-ahead goal.
The game-winner came from Brandon Haughton (Hartford, Conn.) just over three minutes into the overtime period to give the Gulls a 3-2 victory.
