LaGRANGE, Ga. -- Freshman Rodrigo Gudino scored off a pass from Ricky Aguilar in the 105th minute to lift the Guilford College men's soccer team to a 2-1 win at LaGrange College on Sunday afternoon.

The Quakers improved to 2-0 while the Panthers dropped to 1-1.

The match was tied 0-0 at halftime. Matthew Fritts netted an unassisted goal to put the home team ahead, 1-0, in the 51st minute.

Guilford drew even at the 73:35 mark after freshman Giovanni Santibanez scored from senior captain Matt Wisniewski. It was the second goal in two days for Santibanez.

The Quakers dominated possession in the overtime as they outshot the Panthers 3-0. LaGrange goalkeeper Cory Aycock made point-blank saves on Ryan Mouttet and Victor Jimenez in extra time.

On Guidino's game-winner, Grieco slipped a pass through the LaGrange defense that left Gudino one-on-one with Aycock. The Panther goalkeeper had no chance to stop Gudino's shot from 10 yards out.

Guilford had the edge in shots (13-5) and corner kicks (7-4). Zach Vampen made two saves for the Quakers and earned the win. Aycock stopped seven shots in the loss.

The Quakers return to action on Wednesday (9/5) vs. Methodist University. The Guilford home opener begins at 7:30 p.m.
