BRUNSWICK, Maine – Junior CJ Masterson (Barrington, R.I./Northfield Mount Hermon) scored just 40 seconds into overtime to lift the Bowdoin College Polar Bears to a 1-0 victory over the University of Southern Maine Huskies in a non-conference men's soccer game Sunday afternoon at Pickard Field.
Bowdoin improves to 6-2-0 with the win. The Huskies, dropping their second consecutive overtime game in as many days, falls to 3-5-0 with the loss.
Bowdoin controlled the play for a majority of the game, and peppered the Huskies' defense with a 32-1 advantage in total shots and 12-1 edge in shots on goal, but could not get one behind Husky freshman goalkeeper Richard Glemawu (Accra, Ghana/South Kent (Conn.)) in regulation. Glemawu, who made 11 saves in a strong performance, was aided by his posts as Bowdoin rang four shots off of the bars in the contest.
Southern Maine had its best chance for a goal early in the second half when freshman Benjamin Musese (Auburn, Maine/Lewiston) got in behind the Polar Bear defense to record a shot on goal, but Bowdoin senior goalkeeper Stevie Van Siclen (Carlisle, Mass./The Rivers School) was there to make the stop.
Southern Maine hosts UMaine Farmington on Wednesday (4:00 p.m.) in a non-conference match. Bowdoin returns to action on Monday, October 2.
