Wesley Riley scored Marietta's only goal in the 83rd minute in a loss to Thomas More on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013.

The Marietta Pioneers (3-12-1, 0-6-1) fell in extra time for the fifth time this season in a 2-1 loss to the Wilmington Quakers (6-11-1, 3-4) Saturday.

The Pioneers’ weak offensive attack led to a loss once again. They only managed five total shots and one shot on goal. Marietta has failed to score multiple goals in 11 of its 12 losses.

The game remained scoreless until the 71st minute when Marietta forward Taylor Reasoner found the back of the net for his first goal of the season.

Marietta held the 1-0 lead until Wilmington midfielder Daniel Wicks scored on a penalty kick in the 81st minute. Then in the 92nd minute, Markus Tornberg scored off Nick Toney’s assist to give the Quakers the 2-1 victory.

The Quakers attacked the net all game, firing off 24 total shots and 11 shots on goal.

Despite the loss, Marietta goalkeeper Chris Stollar racked up nine saves.

The Pioneers will look to snap their current three game losing streak against the Otterbein Cardinals (8-8, 3-4) at home Wednesday. Wilmington faces off with Ohio Northern (14-3, 6-1) Tuesday.
