Oglethorpe Blows Out Millsaps 5-1
The Oglethorpe men's soccer team broke out of their recent funk with a goal-scoring explosion on Friday, shellacking Millsaps 5-1 in a game that was marred by numerouns cards and skirmishes at the end.
The Petrels scored in the third minute to take the lead, Ben
Robertson scoring on a direct free kick. They then picked up a goal
as the second-half buzzer sounded, James Harter knocking home a
Nick Harris feed for the 2-0 halftime lead.
It looked as though Millsaps might claw their way back into the match when they scored in the 48th minute, but the back-breaking goal came only 20 seconds later, as EJ Ovie-Ogodo scored on a breakaway to give the Petrels their two-goal lead back.
Aaron Walker then scored in the 51st minute off a feed from Robertson, and Russell Thompson added one for good measure in the 61st off an assist from Ovie-Ogodo.
Things got chippy late in the match, as Walker received a red card during a skirmish in the 67th minute. Two yellow cards were given to other Oglethorpe players in the incident, and six yellow cards and the one red were issued during the match between the two teams.
