Men’s Soccer Dominates In Home Opener

DOVER, Del. – Wesley College's men's soccer team dominated Penn State York in the Wolverines home opener, defeating the Lions, 7-1 on Tuesday night at Scott D. Miller Stadium.  The Navy & White even their record at 1-1 with the victory.

Seniors Pat Slinka and Dan Featherer, as well as freshman Paul Grant, Jr., all had one goal and one assist on the day as Wesley jumped out to a 7-0 lead.  The Lions lone goal came on a penalty kick in the 82nd minute.

After Featherer scored on an assist by Slinka in the 27th minute to put Wesley on top, the freshman duo of Derean Ragland and James Parrish put on a clinic for the game-winner.  Parrish dribbled the ball to the end line, juking out his defender and delivered a perfect centering pass to Ragland for the game-winner at 39:13.

Just over two minutes later, Grant booted a long ball that was handled by Joshua Chelleh.  With some fancy footwork, Chelleh fired a shot past the goalkeeper with 3:24 left in the first half.  Twenty seven seconds later, Shaune Gorman put the Wolverines on top 4-0 off a pass from Featherer.

Under two minutes into the second, Slinka headed in a goal off a corner kick from freshman Kevin Cueva.  Grant later scored, as did freshman Keroll Newby in the 80th minute off a ball reversal pass from Les Ragan.

Goalkeeper Mark Mattern got the victory, making three saves in the first 45 minutes of action.  Brian Zuber played the second half and made a pair of stops.

The Wolverines, who outshot the Lions, 31-11, are back in action on Friday-Saturday, September 7-8, when they take on Cabrini and Eastern at the Eastern University Tournament.
