Lewis advances to round of 16

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Lewis sophomore midfielder Lenin Roa-Tapia scored the game-winning goal in the 98th minute to help propel the No. 25 Flyers to the 1-0 (OT) win against No. 8 Ohio Dominican in a second-round showdown at Panther Field on Sunday afternoon.

The Flyers were awarded a free kick following an Ohio Dominican foul. Roa-Tapia took the ball from 40-yards out and from the left sideline. The Schaumburg, Ill., native perfectly placed this shot in the upper right corner past the arms of ODU goalkeeper Macklin Robinson for the victory.

Lewis (13-2-5) advances to the round of 16 for the first time since 2009. Ohio Dominican finishes the season with a record of 12-3-4.

"The [guys] had a great performance against an excellent team on the road," Lewis head men's soccer coach Evan Fiffles said. "I'm very proud of them."

Robinson finished the game with two saves on the afternoon. Lewis keeper Alec Pickett stopped one shot for his 10th shutout of the season.

Pickett was fronted by a very able Flyer defense that limited the Panthers to six shots and only one on frame. Lewis mounted 13 total shots and three shots on goal for the afternoon.
