Bradley University sophomore forward Desmond Campbell’s second goal of the day in the 76th minute lifted the Braves (2-1-1) to a 3-2, come-from-behind win against Nebraska-Omaha (1-2-0) Sunday afternoon in the final game of the 2012 Hotels at Grand Prairie Classic at Shea Stadium. The Mavericks stunned their hosts with a pair of first-half goals, benefitting from a pair of re-directions in the box. Nick Miller gave UNO a 1-0 lead in the seventh minute when he top-footed a loose ball across the goal mouth. After Campbell answered with his first goal of the day in the 13th minute, Chava Garcia again put the Mavericks in front, 2-1, when he deflected a Vance Rookwood blast off his hip and past Bradley keeper Brian Billings at 27:25. Trying to fight back from a 2-1 halftime deficit, Bradley poured on the offensive pressure in the second half, rattling off the first 13 shots of the period.  But despite the onslaught, the Braves did not get the equalizer until the 63rd minute, when a flurry of shots resulted in a Mavericks handball in the box and a Bradley penalty kick. Junior midfielder Keegan Balle buried the opportunity at 62:48. Click here to view additional photo’s to purchase.
