Tulsa Earns 2-1 (2OT) Win Over New Mexico

September 8, 2018

Tulsa’s 23rd-ranked men’s soccer team earned a 2-1 double-overtime win over New Mexico on Friday night at the Hurricane Soccer and Track Stadium.  The Golden Hurricane moved to 3-1-1 on the season, while the Lobos fell to 2-3 overall.

 

“It was a tremendous performance from our guys throughout the entire game,” Head Coach Tom McIntosh said.  “New Mexico is a very good team and well organized defensively.  We had to be patient in terms of our build-up, but our goals were a tremendous piece of work by all the attacking players.  We controlled 80-percent of the game, but it was hard work.  They punished us for a little mistake, but to our guys credit they didn’t get rattled and we stuck to the plan.  I was pleased with our focus, discipline and maturity throughout the game.”

 

Gilles Kuhler earned his third goal of the season off a combination from Devon Sutton and Chase Bromstedt to give Tulsa a 1-0 lead in the 43rd minute, but with just 2:02 ticked off the clock in the second frame Omar Grey evened the score, 1-1.

 

The two teams battled for 60 minutes before Adam Habib earned his first collegiate goal at the 107:49 mark off a pass from Harris Partain.  Habib’s goal was scored as he shot from the left side from 15 yards out into the upper right-hand corner.

 

Tulsa had a 25-9 lead in shots, including a 12-3 advantage in shots on goal, and a 7-1 lead in corner kicks.

 

Bromstedt led the Hurricane with six shots, while Kuhler and Juan Sanchez each added four attempts, and both Joe Ruiz and Munashe Raranje had three shots.  Cooper Clark played the full 107:49 in goal and picked up two saves.

 

Tulsa will return to action on Tuesday, September 11 against Saint Louis.  Game time is set for 7:00 pm at the Hurricane Stadium.
