The SMU men's soccer team opened its season with a come-from-behind 3-2 double overtime win over the Missouri State Bears at Westcott Field Wednesday night. Freshmen Zach Barnes and Juan Castillo scored in regulation for the Mustangs, and sophomore T.J. Nelson tallied the game-winner.

Midfielder Zach Barnes started the Mustang rally by scoring on a header from 30 yards out, just 37 second in to the second half. It was Barnes' first career goal in his first collegiate game. Fellow freshman Juan Castillo followed up the dramatics with his first career goal in the 88th minute to help send the game to overtime.

"It's a very resilient group," said head coach Tim McClements. "The thing that we said at halftime was that we dug ourselves in a hole, but we have the quality in the room to get ourselves out of it - and we did. It was a great way to start out the season."

After a scoreless first overtime period, sophomore T.J. Nelson fired a shot from the top of the box past the Missouri State goalie in the 103rd minute to win the game. The goal was Nelson's first of his career.

The game was delayed two and one-half hours due to lighting. SMU went down 2-0 in the first half before responding with three unanswered goals. Both Missouri State goals were scored off of corner kicks.

The SMU men's soccer team will host the SMU Classic presented by Jason's Deli over Labor Day Weekend at Westcott Field. The Ponies will take on Lipscomb Sept. 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Seattle Sept. 6 at 2:30 p.m.
