CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The MIT men's soccer team was defeated by Johnson & Wales University, 2-1 in double overtime, on Tuesday. With the loss, the Engineers' overall record moves to 6-6 on the year.
Both squads battled through a scoreless first half with the Wildcats holding a 15-2 advantage in shots. In the second stanza, MIT jumped on the board first when James Zorich headed in a cross from Christopher Desrochers at the 62:17 mark. The goal snapped a Johnson & Wales record streak of 607:52 scoreless minutes dating back to September 21. The Wildcats quickly responded as Michael Glinecki connected on a pass from Richard Bouvier almost seven minutes later.
After an uneventful first extra frame, Johnson & Wales clinched the win 3:57 into the second overtime period. Brian Sousa took a pass from Joel Reynolds on a breakaway and fired a shot from 15 yards out to the lower right corner of the net.
Breton Blanchard made two stops for the Wildcats while Thomas Caldwell collected a career-high 12 saves.
