Men’s Soccer: College falls at home to first place UNCW, 4-0
After faltering on a late first-half penalty kick, the College of William and Mary (7-5-2, 3-4 CAA) could not gain any momentum and suffered a 4-0 loss against the University of North Carolina-Wilmington (8-7, 5-2 CAA) Wednesday night at Albert-Daly Field. The Tribe outshot the Seahawks 16-7, yet the tremendous play of UNCW keeper Brock Duckworth kept the game out of reach.
With the Tribe down 2-0, junior back Roger Bothe attempted a penalty kick late in the first half which was halted by a diving Duckworth. The College continued to apply pressure, registering 11 second-half shots to UNCW’s 3, but two late long balls over the Tribe’s back line led to easy breakaway goals for UNCW, icing the game for a UNCW squad that now sits in first place in the CAA.
