Davenport, Iowa - Despite a game-tying goal by sophomore forward Sinisa Vidakovic (Loves Park, Ill./Rockford College) in the 86th minute of play, the Saint Xavier University men's soccer team could not pick up the victory falling 2-1 in overtime Saturday to St. Ambrose University in non-conference action in Davenport, Iowa. With the loss, SXU falls to 3-2 overall this season. After a scoreless first half, St. Ambrose scored the first goal of the game on a free kick by Clint Mattingly in the 68th minute of play. With just under four minutes left to play, Vidakovic got his first goal of the season on a header set up by a cross pass from senior defender Anthony Cappello (Cary, Ill./McHenry Co. CC). With the game tied 1-1, SAU's Greg Lehman ended the sudden death overtime period in the 98th minute with the game-winning goal. The Cougars outshot St. Ambrose, 14-3, in the game. Saint Xavier (3-2 overall) will open its Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) schedule on Tuesday, September 13, with a 4 p.m. game against Olivet Nazarene University (Ill.) at SXU Stadium in Chicago.
