Mount Pleasant, Iowa - September 10, 2017 - The Iowa Wesleyan University men's soccer team hosted Grinnell College in a non-conference match at East Lake Park this afternoon.  After falling behind early, the Tigers were able to chip away at the lead and eventually tie the game up.  The match ended in a 4-4 draw after two overtime periods.

Grinnell was the first to get on the board with a goal coming just over four minutes into play.  Blas Villaseca (FR/Spain) had a chance to net the equalizer, but his shot was just wide of the net. The Pioneers quickly added another goal with just under sixteen minutes on the clock.  Grinnell would add two more goals in five minutes of action to take a 4-0 lead over the Tigers.


At the 23:06 minute mark, Fabien Sanchez took a pass from Villaseca and found the back of the net to give the Tigers their first goal of the game. Pablo Garcia (FR/Spain) cut the Pioneer lead to two goals with a successful penalty kick just over halfway through the first period.   

Iowa Wesleyan took five more shots, but they were unable to find the back of the net before the end of the first half.  

The Tigers were the first to score in the second period with a goal coming at the 53:45 minute mark.  Jose Lorenzo scored the goal and David Chaves Duran (SO/Costa Rica) had the assist on the play..  Lorenzo's goal brought the score to 3-4 in favor of the Pioneers.  Fabian Sanchez scored the tying goal, his second of the game, with 73:04 on the clock.  Trevor Haasis (SO/Williamsburg, IA) came up with a big save for the Tigers to keep the game tied  at 4-4 and force overtime.

Iowa Wesleyan was unable to get a shot at goal in the first overtime.  The Tiger defense came up with a big block, and Grinnell's second shot was wide right of the target.  Neither team could break through in the first overtime, and a second overtime was needed.

In the final overtime, Grinnell took four shots, while Iowa Wesleyan was able to get three shots.  Unfortunately for the Tigers, they were unable to find the back of the net and they had to settle for the draw.

Fabian Sanchez led the Tiger offense with three shots on goal, netting two, which included the game tying goal.  Trevor Haasis was solid in the net, recording five saves after coming off the bench.

Iowa Wesleyan's next game will be on Wednesday, September 13th.  They will host Cornell College at 4:30 pm. The Tigers are now 1-2-1 overall this season.
