Home / News / HUMS logs come-from-behind win over Lawrence Tech

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - Freshman Noah Fleming’s first collegiate goal proved to be the game-winner Friday afternoon in the Forester men’s soccer team’s 2-1 win over Lawrence Tech.

It was HU’s only shot of the second half as the majority of the final 45 minutes was played in the center of the park with the exception coming in the 64th minute when Guilherme Lins Souza unlocked LTU’s defense by slotting Fleming on a breakaway.

Huntington finished with ten shots to the Blue Devils’ eight. Lawrence Tech struck first 20 minutes in but it was all HU after that as Luke Unger chipped one in on an assist by Travis Hurtis with 15 minutes to go in the first half for the 1-1 draw before Fleming dribbled the LTU keeper for the game-winner in the second period.

Senior Troy Hester went the distance in goal for the win. He finished with three saves, all in the second half.

“The boys were up for the challenge today,” said Coach Lawson. “Lawrence Tech is a very talented and hard working side that is well drilled in their attack. I’m proud of our boys - it was a fantastic team effort and we had great team spirit.”

With this win, Lawson’s crew improves to 2-1-2. HU hosts Manchester University on Wednesday in a non-conference clash slated for 4:00 p.m.
