Freshman midfielder Sam Geiler is one of the players to watch this season for Seton Hall men’s soccer. In a game that kept everyone on their toes, his game winning strike with three seconds left in double overtime won the game for the Pirates 5-4.
Seton Hall trailed Delaware 3-0 at the half, leaving everyone to wonder if the Pirates could really make a comeback to win the game. Right at the 49-minute mark, Seton Hall started their unpredictable comeback with a goal from Danny Bartok, who would score again in the game at the 61-minute mark. Although Delaware added one more to their score, making it 4-2, Seton Hall answered back with two more goals, one from George Velasquez and one from John Gurel to tie the game before going into overtime.
Overtime was incredibly intense and great to watch. Senior goalkeeper and former classmate of mine, Kevin Bonder was great to watch in overtime. There were some close calls where everyone thought it could have been the end, but Bonder refused to give up and made sure Delaware didn’t score.
There were some moments where Seton Hall had the chance to score to win the game, but they couldn’t seem to get it done. With the end of 2OT approaching, it looked as though it would end in a tie until Geiler scored to win the game. This goal becomes his team-leading fourth of the season and his first career game winner. We can expect a lot from Geiler for the next few years.
The men’s soccer team is now 2-0-2 for the season and takes on George Mason University on Friday, September 13th in Fairfax, Va.
