San Antonio - The fourth-ranked Trinity men's soccer team was upset 3-2 in a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference overtime game Friday night by the University of Dallas (TX).
Trinity held the upper hand in the early part of the game, after Quentin Van Der Lee put the Tigers on the board in the third minute of play.
Not to be outdone, Dallas answered quickly with the equalizer just four minutes later.
The Crusaders then stormed in front with another score in the 37th minute, taking a 2-1 halftime lead.
The Tigers scrambled the entire half to draw even with Dallas, and the effort finally paid off in the 85th minute of action. Christian Sakshaug forced a goal past the Dallas goalkeeper to tie the game and send it to overtime.
In the overtime period, Dallas scored with less than five minutes remaining on the clock, handing Trinity its first loss of the season.
