Posted by Jesse Shayne ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. – A golden goal from Gordon Bray ‘15 (New Canaan, CT) off a corner kick from Diego Reinero ‘12 (Princeton, NJ) lifted the Skidmore College men's soccer team to a 1-0 overtime victory over Bard in the Liberty League opener for both teams on Wednesday night.
Reinero struck a corner kick that arched right into the box, where Bray headed it home among a group of 11 other players in the penalty area in the 98th minute. The goal culminated a long period of dominance by Skidmore that bridged the last 20 minutes of the second half and the first part of the overtime.
Skidmore (4-2 overall, 1-0 Liberty League) dominated possession, save for a 10-minute stretch in the first half when play was even. When Reinero struck the corner that would end the game, it was the 19th corner of the match for the Thoroughbreds. Bard was held to none.
Skidmore outshot Bard, 16-5, and got two saves from keeper Nick Peterson '12 (West Hartford, CT).
Next up for the Thoroughbreds is SUNY Plattsburgh, at home on Saturday at 2 p.m.
