INDIANAPOLIS - The Marian men's soccer team led for 71 minutes Wednesday night, but a late goal by Goshen tied the match and the Maple Leafs later won it in overtime, 2-1, at St. Vincent Field. Marian is 4-7 overall and 1-3 in the Crossroads League with the loss.

Saturday's hero Igor Ferreira was at it again Wednesday night with another goal to give the hosts an early lead. Alex Webb found himself open on the left side of the box and drew Goshen's keeper out of the net. He then sent a pass to the middle of the box for Ferreira who knew what to do with the open net in front of him. Ferreira's goal was his third since Saturday and gave Marian a 1-0 lead. 

Marian only took two shots in the entire half, but went to the locker room leading by a goal. It wasn't without a few close calls though, as Sidney Miranda made three saves, including a beautiful diving save in the 21st minute. Goshen outshot Marian 5-2 in the half.

In the second half, the Knights' defense continued to hold firm, but Goshen nearly found the back of the net with just under 35 minutes to play as a header carromed off the post just wide. After a few more errant shots, the Maple Leafs broke through in the 85th minute when Uriel Macias scored from close range. A tipped pass ended up at his feet and he beat Miranda high to tie the match. 

In overtime, Macias struck again off a pass from Ethan Francois-Ravalier, beating Miranda low this time to give Goshen the overtime win. The Maple Leafs outshot Marian 16-10 and held a 5-2 advantage in corner kicks. Miranda ended the match with five saves in 100 minutes of play. 

The Knights will to Taylor for a 7 p.m. kickoff Saturday in Upland, Indiana. Your online source for Marian Athletics, tickets, multimedia, Knight merchandise, photos and more.
