Cade O’Neill, OIT men’s soccer

Oregon Tech made its only lead of the night stand up, as an overtime penalty kick from Cade O’Neill broke a deadlock and the Owls defense thwarted any Eastern Oregon rally, topping the Mountaineers 3-2 in a Cascade Collegiate Conference quarterfinal game at Les Schwab Soccer Park in Springfield.

The Owls (12-1-4) rallied from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits to force the 20 minutes of extra time, with O’Neill drawing the penalty four minutes into the session. The senior drove a low shot past the diving Dalton Mauzay for his school-record 13th goal of the year – with the OIT defense not allowing an EOU shot the rest of the way.
