PITTSBURGH, PA -- Washington & Jefferson broke a 2-2 tie in the eighty-third minute and survived La Roche's late onslaught. W&J improves to 3-2 with the 3-2 victory and La Roche falls to 2-3.
La Roche found the back of the net just two minutes into competition but was negated on an offside call. W&J's first chance came just a minute later but Austin Gorman made a point blank save to keep it nil-nil.
The Presidents' Paul Mokrzan scored from long distance in the fifteenth minute and matched it for a 2-1 lead in the twenty-fifth.
La Roche provided pressure on net in the second half and got a great chance when Ximo Vicent sent a free kick curling through the box.
Vicent wasn't done because just three minutes later in the seventy-fifth minute the Redhawks tied it on a set piece. La Roche won two straight corner kicks and Vicent found Kyle Harriet cutting through the middle for his first career goal.
W&J jumped ahead with a Thomas Davidson goal in the eighty-third minute. The Redhawks again found the back of the net in the eighth-seventh minutes but an offsides call brought it back.
Austin Gorman made seven saves. Ansede and Harriet scored goals while Grebur and Vicent provided assists.
