Stormy Petrels outlast crosstown rival Emory in 4-2 shootout

More news about: Oglethorpe men's team

The Oglethorpe men's soccer team found itself in a tough battle with crosstown rival Emory Friday night at the Woodruff PE Center in Atlanta, but they wound up leading virtually the whole way in a 4-2 victory over the Eagles. The win marked their third straight over their crosstown rivals and extended their 16-game unbeaten run dating back to the 2018 season.

The Stormy Petrels got a pair of goals from sophomore forward Abraham Lopez, marking the second straight game in which the Oglethorpe striker has accomplished that. 

The Petrels withstood some Emory pressure over the first 10 minutes, but turned the tables by tallying the opening goal. Senior midfielder Andrew Grodhaus sent a through ball into the box and Lopez ran onto it and finished past Eagle goalkeeper Cole Gallagher for a 1-0 lead in the 25th minute. Lopez then doubled the advantage a little over 10 minutes later when he collected a loose ball in the box off a miss-hit clearance and hammered it into the back of the net for a 2-0 advantage in the 36th minute. 

The Eagles began to make it a game in the second half, though, as they cut the lead in half in the 51st minute.

Senior midfielder Josh Bronstorph refused to let it stay a one-goal game for long, though, burying a perfect free kick into the upper-left corner of the net from around 18 yards out to allow his team to regain their two-goal cushion in the 53rd. 

Emory made a game of it again in the 78th minute, scoring again to set up a frantic finish. The home side threw numbers forward over the final 12 minutes and had a couple chances to even the score and potentially send the game to extra time. However, with time winding down in the 90th minute, freshman forward James Williams dribbled around Gallagher as he came out to try and play the ball outside of his own penalty area. The Emory goalkeeper did his best to bring the Petrel striker down and avert the walk-in goal, but Williams kept his balance and easily rolled the ball into the empty net to secure the 4-2 victory.

The Petrels outshot Emory 19-14 over the course of the contest, including a 10-5 mark in shots on goal. The Eagles took seven corner kicks to the visitors' one, however.

Oglethorpe will be back in action Sunday evening when they return to the Oglethorpe Track and Field for their home opener at 6 p.m. against Gordon.
