SMU Defeats UCF 2-1 in NCAA Men’s Soccer Third Round


PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Eddie Munjoma scored the golden goal just 18 seconds into overtime, lifting No. 8 SMU to the 2-1 victory over No. 9 UCF in the third round of the NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship on Saturday night. The Mustangs advance to the quarterfinals, where they will meet No. 1 Virginia in Charlottesville, Va.

SMU (18-1-1) made the most of a UCF miscue off the overtime starting whistle, when Nicky Hernandez recovered a loose ball in the midfield. Noah Hilt then threaded a well-placed pass behind the defense to Munjoma, who sent the ball to the open far post.
