Tars Survive Embry-Riddle in Overtime
WINTER PARK, Fla. (September 17, 2014) -

The Tars found themselves behind at the half but fought back late in the second to force overtime on Wednesday night, eventually downing Embry-Riddle, 2-1, in overtime.

With the win, Rollins moves a game above .500 at 3-2 while ERAU falls to 0-1-2.

The Tars more than doubled up the Eagles in shots, taking 25 compared to ERAU's 11, including 2-0 in the overtime period.

Brett Durrance supplied the offense for Rollins, accounting for both goals while Grant Blackhurst added a pair of assists. Sebastian Walker and Marten Mueller each finished with an assist as well.

Veit Couturier scored the lone goal for the Eagles with Daniel Gylfason credited with the assist.

Couturier gave ERAU the 1-0 lead late in the first, sliding a shot past Rollins keeper Julian Grundler and inside the far post, his third of the season, in the 39th minute.

The score would hold at 1-0 deep in the second half before Durrance cleaned up a loose ball bouncing around in the box with just over three and a half minutes to play. The score was his second of the season.

With the score tied at 1-1, the game would head to overtime. Then, just over four minutes in, Durrance found the back of the net for the second time and ended the game, 2-1. Durrance is now tied for the team lead with three goals.

The Tars will now host No. 6 Lynn for a nonconference match at Barker Family Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 20th at 7 p.m. Fans can watch all the action live on the Geico Tars Sports Network on RollinsSports.com
