Dydasco Wins It For Falcons in Double Overtime
Oct. 28, 2011
Zane Dydasco scored 35 seconds into the second overtime Friday night as the Air Force men's soccer team posted a 2-1 victory over Seattle University at Cadet Soccer Stadium. With the victory, Air Force remains in second place in the Mountain Division of the MPSF with a 9-5-2 overall and 3-3-2 league record, while the Redhawks fell to 2-11-2 and 1-7.
Dydasco, who also assisted on AFA's first goal, took a crossing pass from teammate John Melcher and placed a 20-yard shot to the far post past Seattle goalie Jake Feeney for his second goal of the season.The shot was Air Force's 22nd of the night, compared to just eight for the Redhawks and AFA held an 8-2 advantage in shots on goal.
Garrett Getschow put the Falcons ahead 1-0 with his team-high eighth goal of the season just 45 seconds into the contest. Dydasco took a shot from the left side that was destined for the top part of the net, but Seattle keeper Jake Feeney leapt and made the save with his outstretched arm. Feeney then punched the ball again but it went right to Getschow, who chested the ball into the net from point-blank range.
Seattle tied it up in the 28th minute when Mikey Ramos scored his second goal of the campaign. The play started when Air Force keeper Matt Underwood took a back pass from a teammate and, under pressure from Ramos, kicked the ball right to Seattle's Marshall Kosaka. Kosaka then sent a centering pass to Ramos who had an open net from 12 yards out.
The second half was fairly even and Air Force's Kevin Durr, who had a game-high seven shots, had a chance to put the Falcons ahead in the 82nd minute but his 25-yard shot from straight away clanked off the left post.
Feeney made six saves for Seattle, while Underwood made one save for Air Force.
The Falcons will host CSU Bakersfield on Sunday at 1 p.m.
