The University of New Hampshire men’s soccer team battled Saint Peter’s College to a 1-1 tie in the final match of the 2006 Nike Fall Soccer Classic Sunday afternoon at Lewis Field.
    New Hampshire scored first when sophomore Kyle Urso (Lombard, Ill.) rebounded a ball off the Peacocks’ net and passed it to freshman forward Chris Banks (Westborough, Mass.) for the goal in the 62nd minute in the second half. 
    Saint Peter’s responded in the 72nd minute when Juan Gaviria redirected a pass from teammate Marco Orias and directed into the right corner of the net to tie the game.
    The match endured two 10-minute overtime periods with neither team scoring.  The tie meant the University of Vermont was the overall winner of the tournament based on goal differential.   
    Saint Peter’s outshot New Hampshire 12-11 while each goalie recorded five saves apiece. 
In the earlier match, the UVM Catamounts and Cal Poly Mustangs recorded a 0-0 tie.  Cal Poly outshot the ‘Cats 17-9 while UVM’s goalie, Roger Scully, recorded eight saves.
