WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Penn men's soccer team's run of hard luck continued Tuesday afternoon, as American scored with just 19 seconds left in the second overtime to defeat the Quakers, 2-1.

With time winding down in the overtime sessions, a ball was crossed in front of the Penn goal and punched out of the box byQuakergoalkeeper Ben Berg. However, the ball landed at American's Jamie Davin, who rifled a 25-yard shot into the back of the net for the win.

With the win, American -- the frontrunner in the Patriot League -- moved to 7-3-1 and extended its unbeaten streak to six. Penn, meanwhile, fell to 4-5-3.

American outshot Penn, 9-2, in the first half and scored the stanza's only goal when Jack Scott took a long pass up the middle and beat Berg in a one-on-one situation.

The Quakers turned the tables in the second half, outshooting the Eagles 9-3 and getting the tying goal in the 57th minute as Loukas Tasigianis netted his sixth of the season. His shot was tipped by AU keeper Matt Makowski, but tricked into the goal for the 1-1 tie. Michael Kozak and Travis Cantrell were credited with assists on the goal.

AU outshot Penn 18-13 on the day and forced Berg to make six saves. At the other end, Makowski had seven stops.

Penn returns to action Saturday night, hosting Dartmouth in the second half of an Ivy League women's/men's doubleheader with the Big Green at Rhodes Field. The men are slated to kick off at 7:30.
