ALFRED, N.Y. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford men's soccer team suffered its first loss of the 2019 season in overtime at Alfred, 4-3, Wednesday.
Pitt-Bradford (3-1) held the lead in the second half but an Alfred (2-3) goal in the 56th minute held strong through regulation, allowing the Saxons to win it in overtime.
The Panthers started the season 3-0, the program's best start since 1999.
The first goal of the contest came in the fifth minute of regulation as the Saxons found the back of the net on a header.
Pitt-Bradford tied it up in the 21st minute as a Thomas Kelly sent a strike past the Alfred keeper.
But Alfred regained the lead just two minutes later, making it 2-1.
The lead would be shortlived as Brent Kennedy found his offensive rhythm, scoring a pair of quick goals, the first in the 24th minute and again just two minutes later to put Pitt-Bradford ahead, 3-2, heading into halftime.
Nine minutes into the second half Alfred re-tied the score, and the two teams held strong for the remainder of regulation.
18 minutes into overtime, though, Alfred scored its fourth and game-winning goal to take the OT victory.
The Saxons narrowly outshot the Panthers, 18-14.
Pitt-Bradford put half of its total shot attempts on goal, led by Kennedy's three shots on goal.
The two-time reigning AMCC Defensive Player of the Week Sihle Sizani played all 98:31 minutes in goal for the Panthers, making five saves along the way.
Up next, Pitt-Bradford will play its second-straight road match as it heads to Baldwin Wallace Saturday for a 2 p.m. kickoff.
