Shorthanded Bonnies Drop Heartbreaker To Fordham, 1-0, In Double Overtime

Shorthanded Bonnies Drop Heartbreaker To Fordham, 1-0, In Double Overtime

BRONX, N.Y. – The St. Bonaventure University men's soccer team dropped a heartbreaker to the Fordham Rams, 1-0, in the closing seconds Saturday evening.

St. Bonaventure had been fighting valiantly a man down due to a red card at the outset of the second half and appeared to be able to come away from the Bronx with a tie after warding off several Fordham scoring chances. The Rams would finally break through, however, just before the final buzzer.

With just four seconds on the clock in the second overtime period, Fordham's Luca Fava ended a mad scrum as the seconds ticked away by heading in the winner off a corner kick.

A slow first half saw the game remain scoreless through the first 45 minutes of the contest.

Junior Shea Currey had a chance to put the Bonnies on the board early in the second half, hitting the crossbar off a free kick in the 54th minute.

The Bonnies and the Rams (3-5-1, 2-0 Atlantic 10) remained scoreless through 100 minutes. Saturday marked the first overtime game for the Brown and White of the season.

Goalkeeper Trevor Wilson made three saves on the night before receiving a red card in the 47th minute of the contest. Kyle Cunningham entered the game and made seven saves in the second half.

Junior Fredrik Hansen led the Bonnies with four shots on the night.

The Bonnies (2-6, 0-2) are back in action Saturday, Oct. 5 on the road at Duquesne.
