Liberty & Stetson Tie, 2-2, in Soggy Lynchburg Conditions

ATLANTA – Liberty and Stetson both came away with a point in the ASUN Conference Men's Soccer standings after playing to a 2-2 draw on a rainy Saturday night in Lynchburg. 

The Hatters bookended Liberty goals with the first Stetson score coming in the 33rd minute on a long-distance free kick from Alessandro Gabbani. The Hatters carried their lead into the break before the Flames struck just three minutes into the second half when Luke Eberle netted his team-leading fifth goal on the season with a sliding poke into the right corner. Gabe Findley followed that up with a goal in the 84th minute and all the momentum for the home team before a penalty to Stetson's Luis Lara Delgado in the box allowed Gio Rodriguez to convert at the line and tie the match in the 86th minute.

Liberty applied the pressure with a 16-8 shot advantage and 10 placed on frame compared the Stetson's five. Hatters' goalkeeper Owen Jack tallied six saves while his Flames' counterpart, Blake Franzen, earned two saves.
