– A goal by Keiser's Ciro Damine in the 108th minute handed the Johnson & Wales (Fla.) men's soccer team (7-4-0, 4-2-0 TSC) a 2-1 double-overtime loss at Arrigo-Vecellio Field on Saturday morning

After a scoreless first half, the Seahawks (8-3-1, 4-2-0 TSC) jumped out to a 1-0 lead with Damine's first goal of the match in the 53rd minute. A turnover by the Wildcats at midfield resulted in a counter for the Seahawks, resulting in the game's first score.

JWU pushed to tie the game, however, the Wildcats were forced to play a man down after Pedro Arias received his second yellow card of the game in the 82nd minute. The Wildcats were not deterred, finding a way to tie the contest with time winding down.

Senior Valentin Salinas took a freekick from the 30 yards out, sending the ball far post. Senior Patricio Rolon ran onto the freekick and one-time a shot to beat KU goalkeeper Joan Carles Perez near post with 27 seconds left in regulation. The goal was the fifth of the season for the native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, while Salinas earned his fifth assist of the season.
