Nebraska Wesleyan jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the first ten minutes of the match, but Dana College answered with two goals of their own to tie the match at 2-2. After playing the first overtime the match remained tied, and was then called due to darkness. Dana does not have lights on their soccer field so the Prairie Wolves and Vikings tied 2-2 in GPAC men's soccer action on Tuesday afternoon.
The Prairie Wolves ended the match in a tie for the fourth time in eight matches. NWU is now 3-1-4 overall and 0-0-2 in GPAC play. Dana moves to 5--1-2 overall and 2-0-1 in the GPAC.
Brad Fullerton and Cyrus Jaffery got NWU on the board right away as they both scored within the first seven minutes. The two goals came within 1:14 of each other and NWU looked well on their way to their first GPAC win of the season.
The Vikings added one goal before halftime as John Podraza scored in the 34th minute to make the score 2-1 at the half. Just over five minutes into the second half, Luke Zabawa tied the match with a goal at the 50:37 mark.
After 90 minutes, the match ended in a 2-2 tie so the two teams moved into overtime. In the first overtime period, NWU managed two shots, but couldn't score.
Due to the overcast day and darkness setting in, the match was called and due to rules it is considered a complete game.
NWU will look for their first GPAC win of the season this Saturday when they travel to Orange City, Iowa to take on Northwestern College.
