"I don't think I've ever had one and I've been coaching for 12 years," Mendon coach Eric Pritchard said of the goal as the horn sounded.
The loss dropped Aquinas to 4-1-0 for the season.

Ex-coach convicted: A Suffolk County jury found former Sachem North football coach David Falco, 53, guilty of filing false timesheets.
Falco's timesheets billed the district $5,755.68 for supervising weight room sessions at the school from Dec. 8, 2017 to Jan. 15, 2018, work that was actually done by his assistant coaches, Suffolk County District Attorney Timothy Sini said. He told the assistants who supervised the room that they would not be compensated for the work.
"He was essentially stealing from his colleagues," Sini said.
Falco was charged with third-degree larceny, public corruption, corrupting the government in the third degree and other charges in a seven-count indictment. He faces up to a 5-to 15-year sentence in prison when he returns to Suffolk criminal court Nov. 12.
Falco has been on paid administrative leave since his arrest in November 2018.
Ex-coach convicted: Rochester police and school officials met to discuss the Friday melee that involved at least 200 people and left five people arrested and two officers injured after a football game at East High.
"Both the police department and the school district have a plan in place to provide for safety and security," according a joint statement that did not outline the steps that will be taken. "The actions of a few individuals following the game Friday night are absolutely unacceptable.
"We will continue to work collaboratively with one another to ensure the safety of our student-athletes and spectators at all district athletic events."
School board President Van White said the issue goes beyond the school.
"As I understand it, at least half the people involved were grown adults," White said. "People have to not only think about what the school district or athletic department can do to address the issue. It's not just schools -- it's malls, it's festivals, it's throughout the city and throughout the country, including suburban districts."
An observation: I attended the McQuaid-Aquinas football game in downtown Rochester the previous weekend, a contest that attracted more than 4,000 spectators. I looked high and low and could find no sign of rioting afterward.
Leave it to a teen to have a more firm grasp of reality -- or perhaps a less disingenuous one -- than the president of the school board.
"I feel really bad about what happened," East senior running back Freddie Brock told the Democrat and Chronicle. "They are messing up our games. ... They are making it an unsafe environment."
