Chesapeake stopped in overtime by Prince George’s
Ezenwaka OT goal spoils sterling effort by scrappy Skipjacks in 2-1 setback
WYE MILLS Prince George’s Community College rallied late in snatching a 2-1 overtime victory from a Chesapeake College men’s soccer team that only dressed 12 players for Friday afternoon’s contest.
Damian Malcolm scored unassisted with 15 minutes remaining in regulation to create a 1-1 tie and Dennis Ezenwaka tallied eight minutes into the first overtime to keep the Owls (3-3 overall, 3-0 league) unbeaten in the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference. Chesapeake’s effort left head coach Mark Dennis impressed with his short-handed crew.
"It was a really great effort from our guys," said Dennis. "We played with more discipline than our previous games, followed our plan and really gutted it out with only one substitute available."
The Skipjacks took a 1-0 lead on Nikita Alleyne’s first-half goal off a Luke Kulynycz pass. Chesapeake goalie Mace Davis (16 saves) and the Skipjack defense made that goal stand up until Malcolm tallied to get the Owls on the board.
"They gave it all they had," Dennis said of his players. "Tyler Fisher, Drew Abplanalp, Adam Bowers, and Thomas Eliason did a great job keeping our defensive shape. And I have to mention the job Hunter Jones did on both ends of the field."
Reynero Pacheco had 12 saves in goal for PG.
The Skipjacks (0-4, 0-4) host Harford Community College Thursday at 4 p.m.
