W&J Men's Soccer Snaps Losing Streak With 3-0 Triumph
WASHINGTON, Pa. -- Junior forward Brian Hanna (Allison Park, Pa./Shaler Area) scored 43 seconds in and Washington & Jefferson tacked on a pair of late goals during a 3-0 men's soccer shutout at Franciscan on Wednesday evening.
The Presidents (4-4), who stopped a three-game losing skid, jumped on the Barons (2-5) early after Hanna's second goal of the year.
The score remained that way for 77 minutes until sophomore Adam Suter (Butler, Pa./Butler) scored his team-leading third goal. Just 30 seconds later, junior midfielder James Calvert (Charlotte, N.C./Ardrey Kell) netted his second goal of the fall for a three-goal cushion.
W&J outshot Franciscan by a 28-11 margin, including a barrage of 17 shots during the second half. Chris McNamara totaled 11 saves for the Barons, while junior Jon Best (North Huntingdon, Pa./Norwin) played 85 minutes in goal and grabbed three stops.
Junior defender Roman Vukmanovich (Pittsburgh, Pa./Seton LaSalle) assisted on Suter's insurance goal.
The Presidents will host Muskingum on Saturday (1:00 pm) on Homecoming Day at W&J College.
