DOVER, Del. – The Wesley College men's soccer team dropped a heartbreaker, 1-0, in double overtime to Delaware Valley on a rainy Tuesday night at Scott D. Miller Stadium.  The Wolverines fall to 2-7-2 on the year while the Aggies move to 6-2-1.

Wesley outshot DVC, 30-6, including 25-3 after regulation.  Unfortunately, the Wolverines were unable to solve the Aggies' Chase Clement, who made ten saves on the night. The Navy & White also held a 10-3 advantage on corner kicks.

"It was a very frustrating night; we simply did not move the ball quick enough nor take advantage of the opportunities that we did create," said head coach Steve Clark. "This is another learning experience for our young team."

Steve Mannato netted the game-winner into an empty net at 103:28 on a cross from Tyler Yankovich.  Ryan Sanders made a diving effort in goal for the Wolverines to deflect the pass but came up short.

Brian Zuber played the first 50:59 in goal for the Wolverines and made a pair of saves while sanders made three saves in the final 52:29.

Derean Ragland took a team-high six shots with one on target for Wesley, while Dan Featherer attempted four shots, with three on goal.

The Wolverines are back in action on October 6 when they travel to CAC rival Mary Washington for a 2 pm start.
