MIAMI SHORES, Fla. (October 26, 2019)
– A goal by freshman Mark Osaghae with two seconds left on the clock sent the game to overtime and ultimately earned the Wildcats a point in the conference standings as the Johnson & Wales (Fla.) men's soccer team (3-4-3, 3-1-3 TSC) tied the Warner Royals (7-6-1, 3-3-1 TSC), 1-1 (2OT) on Saturday afternoon.

Out-shooting WU, 31-10, in the contest, it took until the 90th minute for the Wildcats to score the equalizer as Osaghae headed a cross by Lucas Colodrero past goalkeeper Angelo Neto.

The goal was the second of the season for the native of Miami, Florida, while Colodrero was credited with his first assist of the season.

The Royals took an early lead with a goal in the fourth minute by Simiran Pnaiser.

The goal was one of only six shots WU had in the first half and one of only seven that WU had in regulations. The Wildcats dominated possession in the contest and pepper the Royal defense. However Neto kept WU in the lead, making 11 saves until allowing the equalizer in the final minute.

With the draw, JWU extends its conference unbeaten streak to six games.

The Wildcats will travel to Miami Gardens, Florida, to take on St. Thomas on Wednesday, October 30. Game time is set for 5:00 p.m.
