Last minute goal sinks men’s soccer against Cabrini

DOVER, Del. – A last second goal by Cabrini downs the Wesley College men's soccer team, 3-2 in their Atlantic East Conference (AEC) opener on Wednesday.

Wesley got out the gates quick when Darius-David Robinson played a through ball in the second minute of the game from the midfield to Chimaobi Ikwuagwu. Ikwuagwu used his left foot to curl the ball far post past the Cabrini goalkeeper.

Cabrini responded to Wesley's opening goal with two unanswered goals. The Cavaliers were able to tie the game in the 11th minute of the game when Kostas Slikas got a rebound off the post and put the second chance away. Twenty minutes later, Ben Cahill would net an unassisted goal to put Cabrini up 2-1 heading into the halftime break.

In the 76th minute, Jordan Angel was able to put away rebound with a header to nod the game up at two.

The game was looking to go into overtime, but Cabrini had a free kick that found Andre Justin's head in the 90th minute to give Cabrini the win.

Wesley held the 20-14 advantage in shots, including 14-5 in the second half. Kyle Springsteen made three saves in net in the loss.

Wesley (8-3, 0-1 AEC) continues their Atlantic East Conference opening homestand on Saturday when they host the Neumann Knights at Drass Field. The match is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start.
