Spalding squared match in the 75th minute on an unassisted goal from Kornell Hilliard. He later scored the game winner in the first overtime period.

Seven of Franklin's nine shots were on goal, while Spalding also attempted seven shots on goal from its 19 total shots.

May led Franklin's effort with three shots, while sophomore Luke Oliver and freshman Tyler Majeski each recorded two shots in the match.

Junior goalkeeper Garrett Belden recorded five shots, including four during the second half.

Franklin returns to action on Saturday, September 24 at 3 p.m. when it travels to Berea College for its non-conference finale.
