BEREA, Ohio –  Freshman Kevin Blackley's (Aurora/Aurora) game winning overtime goal, led the Mount Union's men's soccer team over Baldwin Wallace, 2-1 on Tuesday night in an Ohio Athletic Conference matchup at George Finnie Stadium.

The Purple Raiders improve to 10-8-0 overall and 5-3 in the OAC as the Yellow Jackets fall to 6-10-3 overall and 4-4 in the conference.

Sophomore Ryan Kissinger (Mars, Pa./Mars Area) would put the Raiders on the board in the 54th minute to take a 1-0 lead. It would be Baldwin Wallace's Ben Deighton's penalty kick that would tie the game at 1 in the 65th minute. The score would remain 1-1 and go to overtime.
