College Weekend Roundup

University of Alabama- Huntsville hosted a pair of tough matches over the weekend. Friday, on a chilly afternoon, they battled Huntsville native Paul Willoughby and his University of West Florida squad to stay atop the Gulf South Conference table. UAH goalkeeper Tyler Earley was the hero of the day as he kept a clean sheet through 120 minutes of regulation and the overtime periods turning away 8 shots as UWF peppered his goal. UAH was able to earn the 0:0 draw and stay undefeated in conference play.

Sunday saw the weather turn for the better, but the results didn't follow suit as UAH hosted Lambuth . It was as if UAH sophomore Oscar Leon was playing a game within the game of post-post-crossbar when two of his shots hit woodwork in the first half before he bulged the twine in the 57th minute. However, Lambuth's Gavin Smith's two goals in two minutes undid Leon's work. Smith bent a ball into the far corner for the first strike in the 63rd minute before Jaun Garzon drew a penalty and Smith stroked home the winner. All of the life was not drained from UAH however, as Leon would finish his game of post-post-crossbar by again finding woodwork in the 75th minute before Myles Harding would try to join in Leon's fun by hitting the crossbar as time ticked away in the 2:1 loss.
