AURORA, N.Y. – Sophomore Marshall Kaplan (Trumbull, Conn.) headed home a cross from classmate Jesse Constantino (Cincinnatus, N.Y.) in the game's 56th minute, elevating the Wells College men's soccer team to a 1-0 victory against Bryn Athyn College on Saturday. With the win, Wells moves to 8-4-1 overall on the year to tie the program's single-season record for overall victories. Within North Eastern Athletic Conference play, Wells improves to 4-2 overall. Bryn Athyn (4-8, 1-6 NEAC) drops their eighth contest of the year.
With the score locked at zero through the first 45 minutes, the Express were able to capitalize only 11:38 into the second half as Kaplan's first goal of the season came at an opportune time. On the afternoon, Wells outshot Bryn Athyn by a whopping 24-to-6 margin but placed only five of the total shots on Lions keeper Ryan Weinkopff. Additionally, Wells held the decisive advantage in corner kicks (11-to-2).
Wells goalkeeper Michael Sciotti (North Syracuse, N.Y.) made only one save in the game while Weinkopff allowed one goal on five total shots on net.
The Express return to action Sunday, Oct. 12 as they host Penn St.-Abington in a 2 p.m. contest at the South Athletic Field.
