Men's Soccer - Mon, Oct. 3, 2016

The Harris Stowe Hornets Men's Soccer team had a second half comeback today to steal an American Midwest Conference game vs the Freed-Hardman Lions.  The victory puts the Hornets at 2-7 and 2-3 in the AMC.  They are now in a 3 way tie for 7th place in the AMC standings but now have the tie breaker against FHU.  The loss puts the Lions at 2-6 and 2-3 in the AMC.

The Lions scored the only goal of the first half when they got one past Austin Golden at the 36th minute.  The Hornets made their comeback in the second half when Adin Mulasalihovic put one in the corner with the help from Richard Kraka.  On the 71st minute Mulasalihovic put the Hornets up when he was able to slid past the Lions defenders to put in his 5th goal of the season.  The Hornets played stingy defense from that point.  The last threat the Lions gave Harris-Stowe was with 2 minutes left, when the Lions were awarded a penalty kick.  Golden dove to his right to deflect the ball away and to ensure a Hornets victory.  Coach Scott Hartwig, "We showed a great amount of spirit and fight. We had a good first half, outshooting Freed 8-3 yet found ourselves a goal down at half time. I can't say enough again about our Freshman Adin Mulasalihovic who scored two great strikers goals today, a tap in from 4 yards and a well-placed shot from 16 yards through traffic. To their credit, Freed-Hardeman gave us problems in the second half but we defended tough. I am speechless about the drama of a last minute penalty save from Austin Golden. A fantastic stop when mentally I was about to prepare for overtime. The guys showed amazing fight today and hopefully we can build off this win"
