[SAINT LOUIS-VCU]Junior Raymond Lee scored with eight seconds remaining in regulation to send the game into overtime, and sophomore Robbie Kristo scored a golden goal to vault No. 25 Saint Louis to a dramatic 3-2 win over VCU on Saturday. The loss was the first of the season for the Rams in Atlantic-10 play.
"I think the fans got to see a tremendous soccer game tonight,” SLU coach Mike McGinty said. “It’s not necessarily the way I wanted it or the way we drew it up in the game plan, but we’ll take it. At the end, if anyone was going to score the game-winner it was going to be Robbie Kristo. He had several other looks that were good as well, so a guy like that -- in the form he’s in -- it’s only a matter of time.”
Kristo’s game winner, his team-leading sixth goal of the season, came in the 104th minute. He took a David Graydon pass and fired from the right side to the far post for the game-winning score.
Sophomore Kingsley Bryce's goal for the Billikens in the first half was sandwiched between goals by freshman sensation Devon Fisher and Jamaican star Jason Johnson for VCU
Saint Louis is 8-3-0, while VCU fell to 6-2-3.
