[SAINT LOUIS-FAIRLEIGH DICKINSON] Jack McVey scored in the 103rd minute to lift Fairleigh Dickinson to a 2-1 victory over No. 8 seed Saint Louis at Hermann Stadium.

"What a fantastic win for us today," FDU coach Seth Roland said. "We rose to the occasion in front of over 2,000 fans partisan Billikens fans clad in royal blue t-shirts and battled with them over every inch of the field."

The Knights set the tone in the first half when they peppered the Billiken goal, forcing goalkeeper Nick Shackelford to make all five of his saves, several of them sensational.

FDU finally opened the scoring when Jan Aubert scored in the 56th minute on a pass from Antony Moore.

The Billikens broke through in the 73rd minute on a goal by Robbie Kristo.

The winning goal goal came 163 seconds into overtime when Moore lofted a ball into the box that found McVey, who scored on a header from 12 yards out.

"Everyone competed hard today," added Roland, "and special props go out to Karlis Putans and Tatenda Chimhanda for so confidently stepping in after halftime for our injured center backs Nicholas Walker and Jason Wells."

SLU ended its season at 16-5, the most wins by a Billiken squad since the 2001 team won 18 games.
