LEXINGTON, VA.- For the second straight game, the Randolph men's soccer game played to an extra period. This time, the Wildcats were on the right side of the score as Adam Watson (Richmond, Va./Midlothian) hit the winning goal in overtime to lift the 'Cats to a 1-0 win over Emory at Washington and Lee's Watt Field.

The win also marked the 100th in head coach Bryan Waggoner's career. In 11 years at the helm of the WildCat program, Waggoner's record at Randolph is 100-73-22. The victory improves Randolph's record to 3-2 while Emory drops to 2-2.

The Eagles dominated in shots 22-6 and had a 7-0 advantage in corner kicks. Shots on goal were 5-3 in Emory's favor. The WildCats performed admirably on defense with six blocked shots and received five saves from starting goalkeeper Austin Collier (Chesapeake, Va./Hickory).

Watson had four of Randolph's six shots in the game. His winning goal came in the 93rd minute on a free kick outside of the box into the lower corner of the net. It is his fourth goal of the season and leads the team.

The WildCats return to action this coming Saturday when they host York (Pa.) in the first of four straight home games. Game time from WildCat Stadium will be at 4:30 p.m.
