Mustangs Edge Wave United 4-3 in Overtime

Midfielder Mesut Mert scored a goal 16 minutes into overtime to enable the Calgary Mustangs to defeat Milwaukee Wave United 4-3 in an A-League contest Friday night at Uihlein Soccer Park.

A stunned crowd of 2,195 saw Mert convert on a header from eight yards out off a serve from Geert Brusselers that began with a counterattack following a Milwaukee turnover at midfield. The Calgary win extended the Mustangs' unbeaten streak to a season high three straight games (2-0-1) while Wave United saw its own winless streak extend to four straight outings (0-3-1).

Wave United initially took charge of the match when it scored twice in the first 15 minutes. Johnny Torres took a lead feed from Greg Howes to bury a shot past goalkeeper Lutz Pfannenstiel in the 13th minute, while teammate Todd Dusosky (from Howes) converted from the top of the penalty area just two minutes later to make it 2-0.

However, the Mustangs battled back to tie it up (2-2) before halftime, getting goals from Brusselers (27th minute) and Conrad Smith (36th minute) to even the score.

Dusosky tallied again on a turning shot from the top of the area in the 59th minute to put Milwaukee on top 3-2. But the Mustangs responded again, with Nick Zuniga scoring in the 80th minute to make it 3-3.

Pfannenstiel finished the night with nine saves on 22 shots faced, including a brilliant stop on a six-yard volley by Dusosky in the 79th minute that would have put Wave United ahead 4-2. Milwaukee ‘keeper Jeff Richey suffered the loss as he finished with just one save on eight shots faced. The season series between the clubs is now even at one-game-apiece, with the final two games of the series slated for Calgary’s McMahon Stadium Tuesday, August 17 and Thursday, August 26.

quote:Hey Sounderfan, it looks like Minnesota may be the team to not make the playoffs. They haven't won a game on the road all season long and 6 of their last 8 are on the road.
Sure, jinx us! Thunder at Sounders Aug. 7:

Seattle have NOT won a home match all season against a club who at the time had a winning record. Minnesota has yet to win on the road. Something's gotta give...a draw, perhaps? [B)]

Charleston did finish first in their divison and win the title, but they finished in 6th place in the overall standings. The top two team overall last season were Milawaukee at number one and Montreal at number 2. Montreal lost in the first round to Rochester and Milwaukee lost in the first round to Minnesota.
