It was a tale of halves or periods at St. Francis tonight for the men's soccer team.  University of St. Francis had the run of play in the first half of play outshooting the Golden Eagles 8-2 in the first half forcing Miguel Cervantes to make four saves for Cornerstone.  The defense held together though and kept the Cougars off the scoreboard as they played to a halftime score of 0-0.  Cornerstone came out in the second half and reversed the role of aggressor and kept the ball in the St. Francis half for most of the half.  Cornertone outshot St. Francis 7-1 in the second half of play but they didn't get much on frame forcing the USF goalkeeper to make only one save.  The Golden Eagles just missed on a couple of connections that would have led to great chances but they just didn't make the final pass to that would have put them in a more dangerous position.  The Cougars came out hot in the overtime period creating a couple of shots early and the second one found the back of the net just 3:38 into the period.  St. Francis broke down the right side of the field and played a ball across the face of the goal that was finished first time by Jason Walcutt for his 5th goal of the season.  St. Francis improves to 3-1 on the season while Cornerstone drops to 1-2.  The Golden Eagles will return to action this Friday when they host Goshen (Ind.) at 7:00 p.m.
