Sophomore Anthony D'Angelo (Tewksbury) scored his first collegiate goal but it was not enough as the Terrier men's soccer team dropped a 2-1 overtime decision to Northeastern in America East action on Oct. 14.
The loss dropped B.U.'s overall record to 5-6-2, while the team slipped to 1-3-1 in America East as it dealt the Terriers a severe blow in their attempt to qualify for the post-season conference tournament.
D'Angelo put B.U. ahead 1-0 at the 43:00 minute mark of the game when he headed in a ball off a corner by senior Chris Bone (Newcastle, England).
The score remained that way until the intermission.
Then, just 2:46 into the second half, the Huskies tied the score on a goal by Blair Carroll, who also headed in the ball off a free kick.
Neither team scored in the final 42:14 of regulation, although the Terriers had an excellent chance to score into an open net as Northeastern goalkeeper Allan Lewis was distracted. However, Huskie defender Omar Thiam came over to make the save. As a result, the game headed into sudden death overtime.
It was the sixth overtime this year for the Terriers, who were 1-2-2 in the previous five games.
Just 4:15 into overtime, Northeastern won the game when Ben Collins scored off a corner kick by Anders Hoymen.
