URI Rams Score Double OT Win Over George Washington to Advance to A-10 Soccer Championship

 URI report on Rams double overtime win over George Mason in the A-10 semifinals…

Mike Casey proved to be more than the Patriots could handle as he knotted the game up at 1-1 with less than four minutes remaining in regulation and then headed home the golden goal with just 2:31 left to play in double overtime for the 2-1 win. The late heroics put the Rams in the Atlantic 10 Championship game for the first time since 2006.

Matt Sykes set up Casey’s first goal, taking a ball into the six-yard box and feeding a pass to the front of the goal where Casey slipped in the equalizer. A final-minute save by Nils Leifhelm kept the score tied at one apiece and sent the teams to overtime. After an additional 17 scoreless minutes, Casey put the game away with a diving header off a service from Carlo Davids.
