Wolverines rally in final minute, then win in OT 

GROVE CITY, Pa. -- The Grove City College men's soccer team kept its Presidents' Athletic Conference title hopes alive with a come-from-behind, last-second 2-1 overtime win over archrival Westminster Thursday afternoon at College Field in the PAC Tournament semifinals.

Senior Dustin King (Castalia, Ohio/Margaretta) blasted his third goal of the season past Westminster goalkeeper Kevin Humberston with 1:19 left in regulation to tie the match at 1-1. 

In overtime, freshman Bob McNees (Beaver Falls, Pa./Blackhawk) rang up his team-high ninth goal of the season with 55 seconds left in the extra 10-minute session, propelling the Wolverines (11-7-3) into Saturday's finals.

Junior Peter Williams (Charlotte, N.C./First Assembly) assisted McNees on the game-winner for his fourth assist of the season.

Third-seeded Westminster (9-10-2) took a 1-0 lead in the 10th minute on a goal from junior Sebastian Driver-Salazar. 

Goalkeeper Joel Gladfelter (Quakertown, Pa./Quakertown) stopped five shots to earn the victory, his 10th of the year. Grove City out-shot Westminster 15-10.

The second-seeded Wolverines will play either top-seeded Washington and Jefferson or No. 4 seed Bethany in Saturday's finals.
