Alex Kerstetter scored 53 seconds into double-overtime to help the University of Findlay men’s soccer team upset No. 7 Ohio Valley 2-1 on Tuesday in Great Midwest Athletic Conference play at DeHaven Field.

The win marked the second time in two years that UF has beaten an Ohio Valley team ranked in the top 10. The Fighting Scots were ranked sixth when they lost at UF 2-0 last season.

On Tuesday, Kerstetter won it for UF (2-0, 1-0 GMAC) when he scored off a Josh Dickinson assist in the second overtime. Dickinson had tied the game earlier on an unassisted goal in the 73rd minute.

Ohio Valley (1-1, 0-1) struck first 9 minutes in when Hugo Kadima got a shot past UF goalkeeper Andrew Boulton. Boulton made six saves the rest of the way and did not allow another goal.
