MSOC: Bowen's 2OT Goal Gives Terriers 2-1 Win on Senior Day

WATERVILLE, Maine – Zenawi Bowen (St. George's, Bermuda) scored the game-winning goal in the 105th minute to give the Thomas College men's soccer team a 2-1 North Atlantic Conference (NAC) win over SUNY Canton on Saturday afternoon on Smith Field.

Canton got on the board first, with Kyle Smith scoring in the 27th minute to give the Kangaroos a 1-0 lead going into the half.

The SUNY Canton lead would stand until the 86th minute, when Michael Sanzari (Falmouth, Maine) forced overtime with his fifth goal of the season.
