Men's Soccer Drops Tight Road Contest To Wilson

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Marymount University men's soccer team continued on the road Wednesday afternoon, as they traveled to Wilson College and dropped a close bout, 2-1. 

To start the game, there was continual back and forth with both teams finding opportunities, all of which were denied by the keepers. Freshman goalkeeper Eduardo Cardonne made back-to-back saves in the 10th and 11th minute to keep the match scoreless. 

After a corner-kick scramble in the 24th minute, the Phoenix collected the ball and found the back of the net to break the scoring silence to take the first-half advantage into the break, as one one show was allowed for the remainder of the first half.

The Saints got on the board just three minutes after the second half whistel when junior Ridwaan Robinson found freshman Derek Rivera for his first goal of the season. 

Six minutes later, the Phoenix found themselves with another corner kick, capitalizing again on the set piece to take the 2-1 lead with 36 minutes left in regulation. 

Robinson had a healthy chance on goal in the 70th minute to tie the game, but was denied by Wilson goalkeeper Dan Perry. 

Cardonne finished the match with two saves, moving his total on the year to 16 in five appearances. 

Marymount continues its road trip this Saturday, September 21, traveling to Hampden Sydney, Virginia to take on the Hampden-Sydney Tigers. First touch is set for 6 p.m.
