DAHLONEGA — In their second straight game against a ranked opponent, the North Georgia College & State University men’s soccer team proved resilient, striking late to force overtime and battling 13th-ranked Montevallo to a 2-2 tie Saturday in Peach Belt Conference action.
NGCSU remains undefeated on the season, moving to 3-0-3 overall and 1-0-1 in the Peach Belt Conference, while the Falcons see their five-game winning streak snapped to open the season but remaining undefeated, moving to 5-0-1 overall and 1-0-1 in the league.
Plenty of scoring came along in the first half as the Falcons jumped out on top in the 12th minute when Nathaniel Foster took a pass from James Steer and knocked home the game’s first goal.
The Saints countered with the equalizer in the 29th minute as Mikki Bozickovic sent a corner into the box, eventually finding Ben Chedgy who headed home his third goal of the year to make it 1-1.
Foster would add his second goal of the game and fifth of the year at the 30:48 mark however, winding up from 35 yards out and firing a laser strike that grazed off the left post and found the back of the net, giving Montevallo the lead once again at 2-1.
