DOVER, Del. – Wesley College's men's soccer team dominated time of possession and outshot Salisbury, 17-9, but dropped its regular season finale, 3-1, on Wednesday night at Scott D. Miller Stadium. The Wolverines fall to 8-8-1 and 3-6 in the Capital Athletic Conference and will await a possible bid in the ECAC Tournament. The Sea Gulls improve to 12-1-5, 6-1-2 CAC and are the top seed in next week's CAC Tournament.
Shots were tied at five after the half but Salisbury found the goal on two of those shots in transition. Three of Wesley's shot attempts were on target but all were stopped by Drew Staedeli.
The Wolverines got out to a fast start to open the second half with three shots in the first six minutes but received unlucky breaks as two attempts went off the crossbar. Two minutes after Eman Amao's struck the post, the Sea Gulls took a 3-0 lead on a goal by Tanner East.
Chris Harvell was able find the back of the net with just over ten minutes remaining to cut the score to 3-1. Danny Ramirez fired a shot which saved by Staedeli, but Harvell was right there for the rebound and tapped the ball into the right corner of the net just before a Sea Gull defender got back.
Ryan Sanders stopped a pair of shots in the loss while Staedeli was credited with seven saves.
