Mileski Overtime Winner Pushes Wesley Past Marymount

ARLINGTON, Va. - Wesley College Men's Soccer senior Will Mileski picked a big moment to score his conference first goal of the season. 

The Wolverines' top returning scorer from a year ago netted his first goal of the season in CAC play in the 93rd minute of Wednesday night's match, breaking a 2-2 tie and propelling the Navy and White to a 3-2 victory over Capital Athletic Conference foe Marymount University. 

In the overtime period Matt Waldron beat a defender and took off down the left flank. He centered the ball to a seemingly empty box until Mileski streaked in from the backside and directed the ball to the side netting for the game-winner. The ensuing celebration earned Mileski a yellow card, but it mattered little to the Wolverines as they dogpiled their senior at the corner flag.

In the moments leading up to the overtime period it appeared as if the Wolverines had lost all momentum. Leading 2-0 after the first half, Wesley conceded a pair of goals in the second half, including an equalizer with just three seconds remaining on the clock. After their last-second letdown, it appeared as if the Wolverines were down and out. The Navy and White turned momentum and earned the win in one fell swoop, improving to 3-5-2 on the season and 1-2-0 in conference play. 

Sean Bucior and Avery Brice netted the Wolverines' first half goals while Patrick Schlosser and Christopher McPoyle each picked up assists for the squad. Tanner Yaw earned his first collegiate victory by making three saves on the evening. 

The Wolverines will look to build on their win in another conference match on Saturday afternoon. The squad hosts Southern Virginia University as part of Homecoming Weekend with kickoff scheduled for 5:00 p.m.
