Late Goals Sink Wolverines on the Road

FROSTBURG, Md. - The Wesley College men's soccer team held a 2-1 lead in the second half, but two Frostburg goals in the final 18 minutes ruined their bid for a conference win on the road as Frostburg State earned the 3-2 victory.

Zack Baker made four saves in net for the Wolverines but took the loss between the sticks. Hassan Mostafa made seven saves for the Bobcats to earn the goalkeeping win on the day.

In the first half, Wesley fell behind 1-0 on a Frostburg goal in the 30th minute. After a foul on the Wesley defense, Frostburg cashed in on a set piece. Deion Hunter served up the ball for Mitchell Muise who put it away to give the home team a first half lead.

After the halftime break, the Wolverines came storming back. Patrick Schlosser found Adrian Coverdale for the first Wesley goal of the game. The equalizer came in the 55th minute and knotted the score at 1-1. 

Less than 10 minutes later, Tobi Sowande gave the Wolverines a 2-1 lead. Will Mileski found the senior midfielder for a goal that gave the Navy and White a one-goal edge with 26:10 remaining in the contest. 

Trailing by a goal, the home team mounted a comeback of their own. In the 74th minute, the Bobcats scored off another set piece, this time coming off of a header from Guy Nabo. Six minutes later, Frostburg scored again to take a 3-2 lead with just over 10 minutes remaining. Wesley was only able to muster one shot on goal in the final 10 minutes as the home team came away with the comeback win.

Wesley's winning streak comes to an end at three games as they move to 4-6-1 on the season and 1-1-0 in the Capital Athletic Conference. The Wolverines will return to action on Wednesday, Oct. 7 when they play host to Marymount (Va.), another CAC rival.
