Rody Scores Late In Covenant's 2-1 Win Over Berry

Wednesday, September 15, 2021
Down a goal in the final 20 minutes, the Covenant men's soccer team notched two scores as Parker Rody's goal in the 86th minute lifted the Scots to a 2-1 win over Berry on Tuesday night at Scotland Yard.

Covenant (3-3-1) has won three straight contests, all coming in the last five days.

Despite controlling the run of play for much of the night, the Scots found themselves trailing 1-0 entering the final 20 minutes of regulation. Berry broke a scoreless tie in the 62nd minute when Jensen Brown headed in a shot just in front of Scots keeper Henry Hooks to give the visiting Vikings a 1-0 lead.

In the 72nd minute, the Scots commenced the comeback.

Mercer Stout found Jake Major inside the box, and Major cleaned up the shot just ahead of Berry keeper Jose Palacios to even the score at 1-1.
The goal was Major's fourth of the year, and his fourth in the last two contests.

The Scots kept the pressure up over the next 10 minutes and took the lead for good in the 86th minute. A Will Kenas cross into the box was deflected by a Berry defender and Rody knocked the ricochet just over the outstretched arms of Palacios and into the side of the goal for the score.

The goal was the first of Rody's collegiate career.

The Scots would hold off the Vikings over the final four minutes to earn the win. Hooks made one save in 90 minutes, while the Scots held an 18-6 edge in total shots. Palacios made five saves for the Vikings, including a pair of strong efforts to keep the Scots off the board early in the match.

Stout led Covenant with four shots take, while Berry's Henry Asbill and Brown had two apiece.

Covenant will travel to Birmingham Southern on Wednesday, Sept. 22. Match time is set for 8 p.m. eastern (7 p.m. eastern).
