Lee Ties Montevallo 1-1

Sunday, October 15, 2017
After a wild final four minutes of regulation the Lee men's soccer team settled for a 2-2 tie at Montevallo on Sunday evening.

Jared McWhorter scored what appeared to be the game winner at the 86:04 mark to put the Flames ahead 2-1.

The Lead would be shorted lived however as the Falcons stunned Lee with a goal in the final minute of regulation to send the match to overtime. Goalkeeper Robert Kuta scored the goal off a free kick that took a bad bounce off Lee keeper Tristen Putnam.


The Flames held a 4-2 advantage in shots in the overtime periods but could not find the back of the net in settling for their fourth tie of the season. Lee is now 5-4-4 on the year and 4-3-2 in the conference while Montevallo sits at 6-3-3 and 3-3-3 in league play.

The action packed match featured 42 shots and 21 on frame between the two clubs. Lee held a 25-17 advantage in shots and placed 11 on frame to 10 for the Falcons.

In addition to scoring the tying goal for Montevallo Kuta tallied nine saves while allowing the two goals. Putnam turned away eight shots for the Flames.

Antoni Matabosch wasted little time getting the home team on the board as he scored off a pass from Joshua Keller in the second minute.

The early goal would hold into halftime before the Flames stormed out of the locker room and tied things up on a Jose Orellana strike in the 47th minute. Jake Molony set the score up and was credited with the assist.

Lee will look to rebound on Friday after letting three points slip away as it host Alabama Huntsville at 5 p.m. West Alabama visits on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. for a crucial GSC showdown in the final regular season home match of the season.

If you have never seen one in an antique store you wouldn’t know that the first telephones were contained in a not-so-small wooden box that had a snout-looking mouth piece and a separate speaker that you would hold on your ear while you talked. This was many years ago when phones were fun as compared to today’s tiny cell phones that rudely interrupt us from the task-at-hand both ... (click for more)
