SCORING SUMMARY:

- 71st minute (70:52) - After 70 minutes of scoreless action, Springfield's Jaxon Tamulaites broke the 0-0 ties as he finished a cross from Ian Macala and chipped the ball into the left side of the net for the 1-0 advantage.

Jutamulia's goal eventually led to an overtime session for the Engineers, their sixth overtime match of the season.

- 97th minute (96:10) - Jutamulia secured the 2-1 overtime win for MIT as he raced down the right side of the field, cut towards the middle and buried a shot inside the right post for his second goal of the game.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:

- MIT held a 23-14 advantage in shots and an 8-3 edge in corner kicks.

- Jutamulia's pair of goals marked the first two of the season and for the third time in his career scored two goals in a single game. With an assist in today's game, Seiple now leads the Engineers with three helpers this season.
