Becker freshman Isaiah McCaskill (Springfield, Mass.) capped a career week by scoring the game-winning goal exactly one minute into the first extra session to give the visiting Hawks a 3-2 victory in New England Collegiate Conference men's soccer action on Saturday.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
The Hawks and McCaskill wasted little time in the first overtime when he went on the attack and sent a shot past a diving Brendan Pacheco (Fall River, Mass.) for the game-winner.
That goal ended a physical back and forth affair that saw the momentum swing between the teams beginning when Sideon Nemeth (Saint Thomas, Virgin Islands) took a feed from Nathan Cornejo (Douglas, Mass.) and deposited his third goal of the season at 38:32, giving the visitors a 1-0 lead.
Dean's advantage was erased less than eight minutes later when Micah Charette (Fort Kent, Maine) sent a blast into the back of the net, evening the score at 2-2 at the 79:07 mark.
That set the stage for McCaskill, who earlier in the week scored four goals in the Hawks' first victory, to give Becker their second consecutive victory.
INSIDE THE NUMBERS:
The Hawks held a 21-10 advantage on shots and a 3-1 difference in corner kicks. There were 25 fouls called five yellow cards.
The Bulldogs head to Worcester for a Wednesday night showdown against Worcester State, while the Hawks host Nichols on Tuesday.
