MIT Defeats Brandeis in Overtime
Oct. 6, 2005
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Just 39 seconds into overtime, James Zorich took a flick from Christopher Desrochers and blasted a ball from 30 yards out to give MIT a 3-2 win over Brandeis University on Wednesday. The Engineers posted their third consecutive three-goal victory, bringing their overall record to 5-4.
Chase Lochmiller opened the scoring in the 22nd minute by heading a cross by Walter Song. Tech doubled its lead 11 minutes later when a pass by Song deflected off a Brandeis defender onto Joshua Campoverde's foot who recorded the goal. MIT maintained its 2-0 advantage through the intermission.
The Judges broke onto the scoreboard six minutes into the second stanza when Kevin Murphy rocketed a shot from 20 yards that deflected off MIT goalkeeper Thomas Caldwell and into the net. Brandeis posted the equalizer with 5:26 remaining in regulation. Shelton Stewart served the ball to Ben Premo whose shot went off the past and landed in front of Scott Zackaroff, who converted for the score. The Judges were awarded a corner kick shortly thereafter but MIT's defense cleared the line and forced the extra session.
In the net, Caldwell collected seven saves for the Engineers. Jake Knoll made three stops for Brandeis before leaving the game due to injury. Pat Makridakis had one save as he finished the game for the Judges.
