Incarnate Word Friday night to preserve the Flyers' unbeaten record at 10-0-0. Christopher Lenning
's goal in the 54th minute put Dayton ahead, but
it wasn't long though before UIW evened the score with a header of its own from Vincent Bailey
in the 65th minute.
UIW pulled ahead of Dayton just
a few minutes later on Bailey's second goal and held the lead until the 81st minute when a cross into the Cardinal box was headed around a few times before falling to junior Greg Enstone
, who headed in the tying goal for UD.
The deadlock was finally broken in overtime when Acevedo made a perfectly timed run to the left of Amass Amankona
, who picked him out precisely. The senior forward from Rego Park, N.Y., controlled the ball, set up his shot, and delivered on the game-winning goal
The 10-0-0 start is the best in the Flyers' history. Incarnate Word is 3-4-0 in its first season as a Division I program.
