Wolverines Stifled by St. Mary's

Wolverines Stifled by St. Mary's

DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College Men's Soccer team took a 4-0 loss at the hands of Capital Athletic Conference rival St. Mary's College on Saturday afternoon at Drass Field. 

Tanner Yaw made five saves, but the opportunistic Seahawks still found a way to score as they handed Wesley the loss. St. Mary's keeper Zack Haussler was called into action three times, but was up to task on each occasion to earn the goalkeeping win.

Wesley nearly took the lead in the 39th minute. After earning a free kick on a foul at midfield the Wolverines played a ball from the back into the attacking area. Danny Garza collected it and ripped an off-balance attempt that went begging just past the near post. 

Minutes later St. Mary's cracked the scoreboard with their first goal on a breakaway, and followed it shortly thereafter with their second breakthrough to take a 2-0 lead into the halftime break. 

In the second half, the Seahawks continued to apply pressure, outshooting the Wolverines 9-6 in the frame. The visitors' second half goals came on through balls that found their way between Wesley defenders that the Seahawk attackers finished off. The Wolverines conceded a pair of second half goals to take a 4-0 loss.

Wesley moves to 3-8-2 on the season with a 1-5 mark in conference play. The team will travel to York on October 19 to take on the Spartans in a conference bout.
