Baum Stops PK, Makes Four Saves in First Career Start in Goal
HAVERFORD, Pa. — Goucher was involved in its third 1-0 game of the young season this afternoon and this one resembled the opener against Hood in which the Blazers tallied the only goal of the contest in the second overtime. This time it was Randolph pulling out the narrow 1-0 victory at the Jimmy Mills Tournament thanks to a golden goal in the 107th minute.
The unassisted goal Nick Cornell scored at 106:06 came on Randolph's 23rd shot of the game. It was the sophomore midfielder's fourth goal of the 2011 campaign.
Steve Baum (Fallston, Md./Fallston) got the start in goal for the Gophers, the first of his career. He made three saves in the first half, including one on a penalty kick attempted by Jacob Lusczek with 3:25 remaining before halftime.
Although the WildCats (5-0) got off 10 shots in the second half and the first 10-minute overtime period, none were on goal. Baum made his fourth save of the contest on a shot by Will Wolf less than a minute before Cornell delivered the game-winning goal.
The Gophers (1-4) were limited to two shots.
