VIDEO: Studer's first collegiate goal sinks Central in OT

The Pipers’ Matt Warhol (Sr., Andover, Minn.) scored the first goal of the game at 3:51. His classmate Drew Lukas (South St. Paul, Minn.) centered the ball in the box and Javier Rios (Jr., Chihuahua, Mexico) left the ball for Warhol to dump in the net for the score.

The Dutch tied the score at 21:33 when Nick DeLucia (Jr., Urbana, Ill.) scored on a pass from Brett McKenzie (Jr., Lindenhurst, Ill.).

The score stayed locked at 1-1 for the remainder of regulation. The physical game saw four total yellow cards handed out and found Hamline down a man when Sam Slagle (Fy., Appleton, Wis.) was sent off the field with a red card at 82:77.

The Pipers battled through the shortage on the field, attacking in the first overtime. Moe Tageldin (Jr., Rochester, Minn.) took a direct kick after a Central foul just under five minutes into extra play. His shot curved around the Dutch wall, forcing Central keeper Jonathan Glassman (So., Lakeville, Minn.) to make a diving save that sent the ball out of bounds.

The save only delayed the clock from stopping for a few seconds, as Dave Donner (Jr., Stillwater, Minn.) took the ensuing corner kick. He placed it in the center of the goal to set up Studer’s game-winner at 95:11.

Piper keeper Zach Nelson (So., Eagan, Minn.) made eight saves in net for Hamline, while the Pipers were efficient in their shots on goal, scoring on two of four.

With the non-conference win, the Pipers even out their record at 4-4-0, 0-1-0 MIAC. Central drops to 3-4-0 overall and has yet to open play in the IIAC.
