Boney Snatches Late Draw for Cougars Against No. 24 Indiana Wesleyan

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio. – The Mount Vernon Nazarene University men’s soccer team (5-3-4, 0-1-3 CL) tied No. 24 Indiana Wesleyan University (8-2-3, 2-1-1 CL) by a score of 1-1 at CH4 Stadium on Saturday, October 8.

The first half saw both teams playing aggressive and physical, but there were no clear-cut scoring chances for either side. Things opened up quite a bit in the second half as the shots began to come in more frequently. The Cougars outshot the Wildcats 16-13 with MVNU putting six shots on goal compared to IWU’s five.

In the 78 minute, Jaxon Carpenter put the visitors up with a rocket of a goal from outside the box that beat MVNU goalkeeper Joshua Dunn. IWU thought they had won the game but in the 86 minute, Keon Boney chased down a bouncing ball in the box, took a touch behind the defender, and shot it past the onrushing goalkeeper to equalize for the Cougars. The game would end 1-1.
