The Columbia College men's soccer team ended its season on Saturday in a 2-1 double-overtime loss to Bryan (Tenn.) College in the first round of the NAIA national championship tournament in Dayton, Tenn.

Ryo Okubo gave the Cougars the lead in the second half with a goal in the 58th minute. The Lions tied the game seven minutes later on penalty kick. The game remained tied after regulation and one, 10-minute overtime, but Bryan (18-1-2) scored the game-winner in the first minutes of the second overtime.

"It was a terrific season and we had great results," Cougars coach John Klein said. "The game was probably just two equal teams fighting for their lives. They just finally got the game-winner."

Columbia College ends its season at 12-6-2.
