CHESTERTOWN, Md. - The Wesley College Men's Soccer team allowed a goal in the second minute of play and never rebounded as the Wolverines fell 2-0 to nearby Washington College on Wednesday night in Chestertown.
Wesley managed just two shots on goal on the evening with Sean Bucior and Will Mileski each creating an opportunity for themselves, but both efforts were turned away by the Washington College goalkeeper.
Washington's first score came in the second minute of play. With 1:50 expired, the Shoremen penetrated the Wesley defenses and beat the Wolverines with a shot to the upper corner of the net making 1-0 in the early going.
In the second half, the Shoremen added onto their lead by taking advantage of a Wolverine miscue. Wesley committed a foul in the box allowing a penalty kick. Kyle Springsteen had saved both penalty kicks he had faced so far this season entering this game, but could not come away with a third as the home team made it 2-0.
Wesley's offensive efforts fell short the rest of the way as the squad managed 10 total shots, but just two on frame. The Wolverines also amassed three corner kicks but could not generate a score off of a set piece either.
Wesley moves to 2-3-2 on the season and will open their conference schedule with a trip to western Maryland on Saturday when they face Frostburg State University in both teams' Capital Athletic Conference opener.
