We certainly didn’t look like the team up a man in the OT. That was rough.

Now it’s a bit of luck.

SHU looked winded throughout OT despite being a man up. That's a product of a lot of time playing from behind and possibly throwing their best punch in the first half.

Penalty kicks a crapshoot. Want to make that first one and stay ahead. Put pressure on

Yeah most penalty kicks are good. The ball is placed so close and hit so hard that the goalkeeper has to basically guess where to jump before it's even kicked.

You couldn’t write a movie script that captured the excitement of last nights game and the way we won, on the goalkeeper taking the winning PK and stopping two of VT’s PK’s. This unexpected season continues for SH as it advances to the Elite Eight . Great gutsy win by a team that refuses to be beat and now it faces its biggest challenge playing Indiana , one of the nations best programs , but don’t count this team out .

I really thought we were going to Final Four in hoops before COVID. Maybe the sports gods will reward us and we get to College Cup.


Haha now everyone’s a soccer fan???? Go Hall!

I have to give you credit. A few weeks ago you said this team can compete for National Championship. Nice work.
