Explorers clinch A-10 tournament berth
Sixtus Akinlosotu’s 87th-minute goal gave the La Salle men’s team a 3-2 win over Saint Joseph’s, the Explorers clinching a berth in an Atlantic 10 Conference tournament, at Sweeney Field Saturday night.
The Explorers (9-7-0 overall, 4-3-0 A-10) rallied from a two-goal deficit to win their third successive game.
The Hawks (6-10-1, 3-5-0) took the lead on goals by Sam Irvin (eighth minute) and Derek MacKinnon (11th). The Explorers’ Colman Kennedy headed in a Zach Rutherford throw-in for his team-leading fifth goal of the season in the 23rd minute. Matt Robinson equalized off a Kennedy assist in the 41st minute. Akinlosotu converted off his own rebound for his second game-winner of the season.
