LAGRANGE, Ga.- The NC Wesleyan men's soccer team finished off their weekend trip out west with an exciting overtime win 3-2 over USA South foe LaGrange College (Ga.) on Sunday.
Sophomore forward Aly Cadet scored early and often in the win scoring three goals including the game-winner in overtime to beat the Panthers. Those were his first 3 goals of the season in the win.
LC got on the board first scoring in the 17th minute before NCWC came right back to tie it just seven minutes later on the first goal from Cadet off an assist from senior Sheriff Secka, who also registered a three goal game last Saturday.
LaGrange would then take the lead just three minutes later and take that into the break while NCWC led 6-2 in shots.
Wesleyan would then tie the game for the final time on Cadet's second goal in the 48th minute unassisted. The Bishops also led 8-4 in shots in the second half and 15-6 overall with their final shot on goal hitting the back of the net as Cadet scored 9:24 into the first overtime to win it for the Bishops.
Goalkeeper Tobias Borzel picked up the win playing all 99 minutes.
Wesleyan improves to 3-4 overall and 3-1 in the conference with their third straight win while LC falls to 5-4 and 1-3 in the USA South.
NCWC next returns to action on Friday and Saturday when they return home to host Covenant (Ga.) and Piedmont College (Ga.) at 2 PM each day.
