Junior Brandon Gish scored the game-winning goal off a corner kick from Matt Kowaleski with less than six minutes to play here Sunday to give the Centre College men's soccer team a 2-1 victory over Oglethorpe University.
The win was the sixth straight for Centre (9-1) and improved the Colonels' record in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play to 4-0. Oglethorpe (7-3) dropped to 2-1 in SCAC play.
"This was a crucial conference game for us," said Centre coach Jeb Burch. "It was a hard-fought game with 26 fouls on Centre and 25 on Oglethorpe."
Centre scored first when junior Nick Judah tallied off an assist from senior David Horne less than three minutes into the match. The goal was Judah's 11th of the season while Horne registered his third assist. Oglethorpe's Josh Rosendahl tied the game midway of the first half on a 22-yard free kick.
