The first goal was assisted by Abu Farrah 07 in the 72nd minute, and only three minutes later, Zietlow soared a second goal past Scot goalkeeper Ryan Palmer, assisted by Phil Kennedy 10.
Head coach Kurt Anderson commended the teams performance.
The kids played great. We came back from losing a couple games last week and turned it around, Anderson said. Andy [Gastineau 07] prevented a couple of opportunities from going against us in our defensive third.
Over fall break, the Oles hit the road and traveled to Georgetown (Texas) and San Antonio for two non-conference games. The Oles played Southwestern University to a 1-0 loss on Oct. 14. A scoreless first half ended abruptly in the 78th minute when Pirate Daniel Webb scored an unassisted goal against goalkeeper Kevin Friede 09.
The following day, the Oles played the Trinity University Tigers and fell 7-0. The Tigers stand at 13-0-0 for the season. Trinitys German Gomez scored after only 14 minutes of play and a second time just two minutes later. Gomez made the next four goals within a four-minute stretch during the second half.
After the road trip to Texas, the Oles played the St. Thomas Tommies in St. Paul. In the last minute of the second overtime, Tommie Adam Michalick scored the only goal of the game for a 1-0 victory over St. Olaf.
In what was their final home game of the season on Tuesday afternoon, the Oles played Hamline to a 0-0 tie. No shot could get past either keeper, as Andrew Clement had seven saves for the Pipers and Eric Smith 07 had six for St. Olaf.
St. Olaf stands at 3-4-2 MIAC and 6-9-2 overall, with their regular season finale coming Saturday afternoon at Carleton. After earning a share of the MIAC title in 2004, the team will miss the playoffs for the second straight year.
