Sep 12, 2015

MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Dani Morrilo's goal in the second minute wasn't enough as the University of Dubuque men's soccer team fell to the Milwaukee School of Engineering, 2-1, in overtime in a game that featured a combined 41 shots on Saturday afternoon.

A quick score for the Spartans gave them the early lead until the Raiders () hit the equalizer in the 34th minute thanks to a failed clearance in the box. It remained scoreless until MSOE's golden goal off a set piece five minutes into the first overtime period.

The Spartans (3-1-1) suffered their first loss of the season in a game where they were outshot, 24-17, and out corner kicked, 9-1. 

UD's leading goal scorer Gonzalo Hernandez tied Morrilo with a team-high four shots, including two on goal for Hernandez. Spartan goalkeeper Riley Jensen played all 95:29 and racked up seven saves.

The Spartans drop to 0-2 in the all-time series against the Raiders after a 1-0 defeat a year ago.
