Wolverines Outdone by Eagles in Conference Duel

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. - The Wesley College Men's Soccer team traveled to Virginia to take on Capital Athletic Conference rival Mary Washington, but fell 5-1 at the hands of the Eagles on Saturday afternoon.

Tanner Yaw made four saves for the Wolverines in net. Sean Bucior earned an assist while Will Mileski netted the team's only goal of the game. Mileski and Bucior each registered on shot on goal, but those were the only opportunities Wesley was afforded by the stingy Eagles' defense.

The Wolverines played evenly with the Eagles for the first 27 minutes, but fell on bad luck in the 28th as they were whistled for a foul in the box. The home team buried their penalty to go ahead 1-0. The Eagles added another score in the first half to take a 2-0 lead into the break. 

In the second half, Mary Washington added a pair of quick goals to extend their lead. The Eagles struck in the 47th minute, and again 3:08 later to take their lead to 4-0. In the 58th minute of the game, the Wolverines broke their scoreless streak when Sean Bucior found Will Mileski for a score. The forwards worked together to manufacture an opportunity and Mileski buried the chance, making it 4-1. UMW added another goal late in the game to make the final score 5-1.

Mileski's tally marked the 23rd of his career moving him into seventh in Wolverine history in goals scored and fifth in Wesley program history in total points (69). 

Wesley moves to 3-10-2 on the season with a 1-7 mark in conference play. The team will host Salisbury University in their regular season finale and honor their seniors.
