Men’s Soccer Ties Barry

Miami Shores, Fla. – Lynn University's men's soccer team held a 2-0 lead but two quick second-half strikes from Barry and an overtime stalemate ended the match in a 2-2 draw on Wednesday night.  Chris Hellmann tied for the national lead with his 10th goal of the season and Bruno Militz scored his second goal as the Fighting Knights record moved to 2-1-2 overall and 0-1-1 in Sunshine State Conference play.

Just 10:49 into the match the Blue & White went ahead 1-0.  Dominic Friedl flipped a pass over the Buccaneer (4-0-2, 0-0-1 SSC) defense off a throw-in from Hussein Heidari and Hellmann took care of business in a 1-v-1 opportunity with keeper Bo Haug.  The junior from Cologne, Germany now has 42 career goals, placing him fourth in program history.

Militz was next to find the back of the net as he beat Haug on a shot from the right wing to the left post moments into the second half.  Lynn's lead would be short-lived with Barry's Manuel Perez scoring goals in the 52nd and 56th minutes to knot the match at 2-2.

Neither team had much of an opportunity in overtime with Lynn and Barry attempting only one shot apiece total.  Jonny DeMoya logged a career-high eight saves, many of which kept the Blue & White either ahead or tied with the Buccaneers.

The Fighting Knights have their bye week this weekend and return to the pitch on Wednesday, September 30, at 7 p.m. when they host Nova Southeastern at Bobby Campbell Stadium.  Fans can watch the match live at LynnFightingKnights.com and receive in-game updates by following @Lynn_Knights on Twitter and Instagram.  Don't forget to 'Like' us on Facebook.
