For a second straight year the St. Lawrence University men's soccer team has seen its season end with a game against Amherst in the NCAA Division III Tournament.
Once again the teams went to overtime, this time ending in a 1-1 tie Sunday afternoon in a second-round game at SLU's Sandy MacAllaster Field.

But Amherst (14-1-5 overall) earned the right to move to the third round after winning 3-2 in a shootout, with the winning goal coming on this shot by Kieran Bellew.

SLU (17-2-2) outshot the Lord Jeffs 27-11, but Amherst had a 7-5 edge in shots-on-goal. 

The Saints controlled possession for most of the second half of the game, but Amherst scored first on a rebound goal by Cameron Bean in the 69th minute.

SLU answered with a goal from Manny Collins in the 79th minute, with Harry Copeland picking up an assist.

Here are two videos showing some of SLU's scoring chances in the contest. The first is from the first half and the second is from late in regulation.

CAP CAREY, WATERTOWN DAILY TIMES
SLU tight end Mitch Gallagher celebrates after catching what turned out to be the game-winning touchdown Saturday against Union.

For a second straight year the St. Lawrence University football team used a fourth-quarter rally to defeat Union College in a Liberty League game.

The Saints won 28-20 on Saturday before 2,474 fans at Leckonby Stadium, coming back from a 20-7 deficit early in the second half. Last year SLU trailed 20-13 in the second half and wound up winning 30-20 in Schenectady.

A key factor in SLU's win was the two-way play of junior defensive back Leondre Simmon, who caught two touchdown passes and also had a key interception for the Saints

Sophomore defensive back James Holley-Grisham used a 23-yard punt return to Union's 24 to set up the final touchdown of the game for the Saints.

Shortly after Holley-Grisham's return SLU quarterback Mike Lefflbine threw this 6-yard pass to Simmon to give the Saints a 28-20 advantage.

 

 

Union's last chance to tie the game ended when sophomore defensive lineman Chyron Brown-Wallace sacked Dutchmen quarterback Connor Eck two straight times to end Union's final offensive series. The Saints finished with seven sacks and Brown-Wallace tallied 3 1/2.

After reaching the NCAA Division III Tournament the last two seasons, including an appearance in the sweet 16 last year, the St. Lawrence University men's soccer team has lofty expectations heading into the 2014 season. SLU finished 17-3-2 overall last season and went 7-1 in the Liberty League. The Saints return nearly every key performer from last season, including goalie Aaron Costello, who set a school record with 16 shutouts last season. Here are conversations with Saints head coach Bob Durocher, who guided the program to a national title in 1999 and a final four appearance in 2002, as well as Costello.
