Second Half Surge Sends Men's Soccer to Season Opening Setback

Allegheny (1-0) started the scoring with a goal from Tom Ludwig in the 34th minute.


Mount Union (0-1) tied the game at 1-1 just under two minutes later when T.J. Welch (Columbia Station/Columbia) knocked in a penalty kick.


The game would remain tied 1-1 at halftime.


D.J. Egan then leaped over two Purple Raiders and headed in a throw-in from Adam Spisak for a spectacular goal that turned out to be the game-winner in the 70th minute.


Spisak would feed Egan again with a cross six minutes later that resulted in the 3-1 final.


Mount Union is back in action Friday against Waynesburg (PA) College at the Geneva College Tournament in Beaver Falls, PA.
