BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Eliot Goldthorp recorded his second goal, in the final minute, as the Hofstra University men salvaged a 2-2 draw with Campbell University in a Coastal Athletic Association game at the Eakes Athletics Complex o Saturday afternoon.
The Pride moved to 4-1-2 overall and 0-0-2 in the CAA with the draw. Campbell is 1-1-4 overall and 0-1-2 in league play.
Following a scoreless first half in which the Pride held an offensive advantage, the Camels came out in the second half with more energy and got on the board 3:38 into the period. A streaking Teva Lossec converted a pass in front from Marco Wright to give Campbell the lead.
Goldthorp answered for the Pride just about 10 minutes later as he sent in a pass from Albert Kang for his second goal of the season. The tie score did not last long as the Camels Tai-Reece Chisolm snuck in behind the defense and scored off a pass from Alexy Issa Alban at 62:37. Campbell had opportunities to add an insurance goal, including one with just over three minutes left when a sure goal was cleared off the line by Shane Salmon.
That turned out to be a huge play as the visitors pushed everyone forward in the final minute and following a flurry of activity, Ryan Carmichael slid a pass to Teddy Baker on the right side of the box. The Pride junior threaded a perfect pass to Goldthorp in front and the All-American sent it home to earn a point for the Pride in the CAA standings and deny the Camels their first CAA victory.
Carmmichael has recorded a point in five consecutive games.
Hofstra goalkeeper Wessel Speel made one save while Campbell keeper Samy Slimi had six.
The Prde will return to action Tuesday at 2 p.m. against LIU.
