Men's Soccer Nips # 8 Southern New Hampshire 1-0 in OT

Bridgeport, CT-Mike DiBartolomeo (SR, Wallingford, CT) scored with only 1:11 remaining in the first overtime to lift the University of Bridgeport men's soccer team to a big 1-0 non-conference win over the number eight ranked team in the nation and the top ranked team in the East Region by both the NSCAA and the NCAA, Southern New Hampshire University Penmen. The win raises the Purple Knights overall season record to 10-3-3. SNHU is now 13-3-2 overall.

DiBartolomeo's game-winning goal, his second of the season, came on a long shot that found its way into the top corner of net from outside the 18-yard box.

Junior goalkeeper Peter Barrows (Old Saybrook, CT), who was making his first start of the 2009 season, was outstanding in the UB net, making seven saves to notch the clean sheet in the victory.
 
Penmen goalkeeper, Sean Lambert, also played well making five saves between the pipes.
 
Bridgeport will now look to win the regular season East Coast Conference title outright on Saturday afternoon as they host New York Tech at 3:00 p.m. UB needs a win or a tie against the Bears to take the ECC regular season title on Saturday
