WENHAM, Mass. — The Endicott men's soccer team traveled to Gordon College for a Commonwealth Coast Conference matchup and the Gulls came away with a close 3-2 overtime win.

The Gulls found the back of the net first when Alex Vuksta (Hudson, Ohio) collected a rebounded save and tapped the ball past Gordon netminder Wesley Sprague (Naperville, Ill.)

Seven minutes later, Endicott's Evan Couchot (Mason, Ohio) netted his 13th goal of the season off a long pass from Conner Couchot (Mason, Ohio) to extend the lead. 

The Fighting Scots responded shortly after when Noah Craig (Corvallis, Ore.) cut the deficit to 2-1 heading into halftime.

Just over midway through the second half, Gordon tied the game up at 2-2 with a tally from Luckson Dambo (Belmont, Mass.)

Both teams saw several scoring chances throughout the remainder of regulation but neither was able to find the go-ahead goal.

The game-winner came from Brandon Haughton (Hartford, Conn.) just over three minutes into the overtime period to give the Gulls a 3-2 victory.
