2013-14 Rewind: Top Moments in Wolverine Athletics

Moment 7: Alfery stops 18 shots as Wolverine men earn tie with PAC-leading Thomas More

Today's “13-14 Rewind: Moment of the Year” also takes us to November 2nd and the Grove City College men's soccer team's Senior Day and regular-season finale with Presidents' Athletic Conference leader Thomas More.

The Saints came in winners of 11-straight matches while the Wolverines were unbeaten in their previous seven games, going 5-0-2 during that stretch.

Amidst dreary, rainy conditions, Thomas More would dominate the first half, striking in the 24th minute to take a 1-0 lead. Midway through the second half, however, Grove City would steal the momentum and eventually equalized in the 82nd minute when sophomore Tim Shackleton dropped a ball back to freshman Dale Reese, who played a beautiful left-footed bending shot past the Saints' keeper.

From there, Alfery kept Thomas More off the board through the remainder of regulation and two overtime periods, recording a career-high 18 saves (six in the overtimes) to preserve the tie. Alfery's save total was the highest in the PAC in two years and the most by a Grove City goalkeeper since Dave Paterline recorded the same number on October 25, 1997.
