Local Sports Roundup -- 9/13/9
College Soccer


Monmouth College's Garrett White scored on a corner kick in the 89th minute to force overtime, but Cornell found the back of the net with just 1:30 left in the second overtime to pull out a 2-1 win on Monmouth's home turf.

Monmouth (1-2) outshot the Rams 34-8, but Cornell made the most of their limited opportunities, scoring just before halftime after a scramble in front of the net. The Scots had chances in overtime, but missed on their seven attempts in the two extra sessions.

Cornell scored the winner with their only shot in the final overtime.


Carl Sandburg College's men's soccer team came up empty again Sunday to get its first win of the season.

The Chargers played host to Kishwaukee College and lost 6-00.

The Kougars scored all of their goals in the second half and were led by Ryan Black, who scored in the 57th minute and 61st minute. Ryan Salazar, Andy McKanna, Mark Govednik and Anthony Parra also found the back of the net. Kishwaukee goalkeeper Brad Miller had five saves, and his teammates had 19 shots on goal.

CSC (0-7) had just five shots on goal. Freshman goalkeeper Evan Morath had 13 saves for Sandburg.

"I thought we played great three quarters of the game," Chargers head coach Jim Carothers said. "We just let our guards down after they scored the first goal and they kept going. We could not string our passes together and find the back of the net."


Elmhurst College shut out Monmouth College 3-0.

Elmhurst scored twice in the first half and added another goal in the second half against the Scots (1-3). Monmouth was outshot 13-8 in the match.

Sarah Wintersteen led the Scots with four saves in goal.
