Haverford College was unable to break down Oneonta's defense, even with a man advantage, and fell in heartbreaking fashion on Sunday afternoon at home in the NCAA Division III quarterfinal.
The game appeared to be heading to penalties after 97 minutes of scoreless soccer when, going against the run of play, Oneonta forced reserve goalkeeper Chris Gibson into a dazzling save on an upper 90 bound shot.
Gibson, who replaced injured starter Sam Miller in the 33rd minute, was unable to get a hand on the ensuing corner kick from Greg Silvestro that Dylan Williams tipped across the goal line, silencing most of the 487 fans in attendance while the Red Dragons mobbed each other on the field.
The shutout extended Oneonta's scoreless streak to a remarkable 828 minutes even after going down a man when all-conference midfielder Anthony Passiatore was sent off for a violent challenge in the middle of the field in the 89th minute of play.
Oneonta will be joined in Kansas City by former Union Academy goalkeeper Thomas Bull and Amherst, Calvin and the winner of today's quarterfinal between Loras and Wheaton.
