The Aurora University men’s soccer team got a late goal and hung on for a 2-1 nonconference victory over Lawrence University on Saturday at Whiting Field West.

Xavier Carrillo scored at the 73:25 mark off a pass from Matt Houghtaylen to give Aurora the 2-1 lead. Carrillo’s shot just got past a Lawrence defender, who was able to deflect it but not keep it out of the net.

Aurora took the early lead when Christian Foote scored at the 17:34 mark of the first half. Lawrence tied it when David Caprile scored his second goal of the season at the 53:27 mark.
