Quatrano scores goal in final 13 seconds to tame Tornados, 1-0

It took the Scots more than 109 minutes to against Brevard College, but Maryville College came away with its 10th victory of the season, 1-0.

Maryville's Michael Quatrano scored the Golden Goal of the match with just 13 second remaining in the final overtime period to avoid the tie with the Tornados.

The 5-foot-10, 170-pound defender scored his third goal of the season – none more important than Tuesday's.

With just second left in the match, Maryville Chris Fernandez took a long throw in. A Brevard defender deflected the throw, before Quatrano was able to gain control, lobbing a shot over Ty Stubbs' head from 12 yards out, ending the match immediately.

The victory moves the Orange and Garnet to 10-1 on the 2017 season.

Maryville outshot the Tornados, 20-9, in regulation, before going even with the squad, 4-all, through the overtime periods.

Reigning USA South Defensive Player of the Week Ryan Jorgensen stood strong in net, providing 109:47 of scoreless soccer. Jorgensen turned away four saves in the contest to keep Maryville's hopes alive in the thrilling 1-0 win.

The Scots tallied 10 shots on goal against Brevard, as Stubbs was able to turn away all but one.

Maryville wasn't able to take control in the physical game, as the two squad combined for 28 fouls and four yellow cards. Of those, 18 fouls were on the Tornados, as the Scots withstood the storm.

Quatrano tallied a pair of shots – both on goal – before his game-winner late. Johnny Rakhmonberdiev had eight shots to Andrew Sullivan's six, as both Scots totaled a trio of shots on goal.

For Brevard College (2-5), it was Hiroki Noguchi who had four shots, as Jesse Omezi had three. The pair combined for half of the Tornados shots on goal for the evening.

Maryville will look to ride the high of Tuesday's match into a pair of key USA South contests this weekend. The Scots host Methodist University on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 4:30 p.m., before taking on N.C. Wesleyan College on Sunday, Oct. 8 at 3:30 p.m. for Senior Day.

Both of those squads rank in the top two in the USA South Eastern Division, as Maryville leads the Western Division with an unblemished 5-0 mark.
