Mark Sisco-Tolomeo knocked in a rebound off a shot by Mohammed Rashid just :39 seconds into the second overtime to give the visiting Williams College men's soccer team a 1-0 win over Wesleyan Saturday afternoon. The win moved the Ephs to 5-4-2  overall and 3-3-1 in NESCAC, while the Cardinals dropped to 7-4-1 overall and 3-3-1 in the conference.

The two teams played a scoreless first half, but the visiting Ephs had a couple of quality scoring chances. The first came from Mohammed Rashid with 22:29 left, and the other off a header from Troy Ritter with 20:58 to go. Cardinal goalie Jack Katkavich was there to stop both attempts.

The best Wesleyan chance came with 8:16 to play when senior Brandon Sousa (Waterbury, CT) blasted a shot from the top of the box that skipped off the crossbar.

The Cardinals outshot the Ephs 8-5 in the half, but Williams had three on goal to just two for Wesleyan. The Cardinals had eight corner kicks in the period but had just one shot off of them.

Regulation ended scoreless as well, but sophomore Taylor Chin had two great chances. He rocketed two shots off the crossbar three minutes apart midway through the half. Williams' best chance came in the closing seconds on a header Malcolm Moutenot that hid off the head of defender Danny Rubenstein to the hands of the goaltender, Katkavich.

After a scoreless first OT period, Williams won :39 into the second overtime when Sisco-Tolomeo knocked in the rebound.

Katkavich finished with eight saves for Wesleyan, while Christian Alcorn had four for the Ephs.
