Despite two late goals by the No. 23 MSU men’s soccer team, the Spartans lost, 3-2, in overtime Saturday at Michigan.
Junior forward Domenic Barone scored a pair of goals in the second half to overcome a two-goal deficit, but the Spartans (11-5 overall, 2-4 Big Ten) were unable to retain the Big Bear Trophy for the first time since 2003. The Wolverines (10-4-3, 3-2) scored in the 98th minute to pull off the victory.
Barone had a penalty kick blocked in the first half and barely missed the net off of a corner kick in the last few minutes of regulation.
Senior goalie Avery Steinlage had six saves while facing 22 Michigan shots.
