Horton does it again!

Super sub Aaron Horton put No. 1 University of Louisville throught to Sunday’s Men’s College Cup final with a winning strike against No. 4 North Carolina with just 52 seconds remaining at Santa Barbara, Calif.

Amazingly, last Saturday, Horton also bagged the winner in a 5-4 thriller against UCLA with 52 seconds on the clock.

The Cards took the lead with 57.12 on the clock when Austin Berry headed home from a Dylan Mares corner, but the lead was short lived with Stephen McCarthy heading in an Alex Dixon cross just four minutes later.

However, Louisville, who haven’t encountered overtime in any of their four NCAA tournament games, booked its place in a first ever national championship when a North Carolina defensive error allowed Ryan Smith to slide the ball through for Horton, who calmy struck the ball home with his right foot for a 2-1 victory.

The Cards will take on No.3 Akron in Sunday’s final (4 p.m. EST), who came from behind to beat No. 10 Michigan 2-1.
