Obour Supplies Fireworks In EMU's 2-1 OT Win Over Ferrum

Midfielder Daniel Obour (Alexandria, Va./Mount Vernon) had an assist and goal, including the game-winner with 1:53 left in overtime, to give EMU's soccer men a 2-1 win over visiting Ferrum College. It was the Royals' third straight 2-1 victory, including two in OT, as they push their winning streak to four games.

Eastern Mennonite snapped the Panthers' season-opening four-game streak, as both teams stand at 4-1 after the non-conference contest.

The Royals try to continue their run on the road, traveling to Albright College in Reading, Pa., Saturday afternoon at 3:00pm. The men play their next four games away from Harrisonburg.

Tuesday's thriller was full of scoring chances for both teams. Obour helped put EMU on the board in the 15th minute, firing a cross from the left wing to Dave Drafton (Alexandria, Va./Howard Gardner). Ferrum's goalie made a dive at the pass, but Drafton controlled it for the quick touch and score.

The men had other good looks, but David Shafer (Maitland, Fla./Bishop Moore Catholic) knocked a shot off the post and Emmanuel Boamah (Alexandria, Va./West Potomac) beat the keeper only to have a defender save the shot.

Ferrum's Keith Ricks rattled a shot off the cross bar towards the end of the half and it seemed to give the visitors some momentum. The Panthers controlled much of the second, out-shooting EMU 13-7. They had two different attempts saved by a Royals defender, and eventually equalized on a Moore Dolue goal in the 55th minute.

Eastern Mennonite nearly won the game late in regulation as Juan Luna (Mount Jackson, Va./Stonewall Jackson) just missed a weakside header in the 88th and Shafer put another header off the crossbar and straight down to FC's keeper in the 89th.

That seemed to give the Royals the edge heading into overtime where Obour won it in the 99th minute. Shafer started the clinching score with a cross from the right side, which Luna flicked to Obour on the weakside.

The teams finished even with shots at 21-21, although Ferrum had an edge in on-target attempts at 13-7. Sophomore Cody Martin (Martinsville, Va./Carlisle) racked up a career high 10 saves.

Shafer led the team with six shots, but the rest of the attack was balanced as nobody else had more than two of the 15 other EMU attempts.
