RALEIGH, N.C. - Behind junior Alan Sanchez's two goals, the NC State men's soccer team defeated visiting VMI, 3-1, Tuesday night at the first ever night game at the NC State Soccer Stadium. The Pack (1-3-1) tallied 21 shots for the game against the Keydets (0-4) and picked up the first win of the season.
The Wolfpack would get on the scoreboard first at the 9:00 mark in the first half. Tyler Lassiter won the ball around midfield and found Ronnie Bouemboue on the left flank. Bouemboue dribbled towards goal and let a shot go from about 25 yards out through traffic and into the VMI net.
LYNCHBURG, Va. - Freshman forward Alex Dixon scored two goals, including the game-winner late in the first half, to pace No. 8 North Carolina to a 4-1 win over Liberty Tuesday at Liberty Soccer Field. In addition to Dixon's first two career scores, forwards Eddie Ababio and Brian Shriver each found the back of the net for the Tar Heels (5-0-1).
Dixon tallied the game-winner in the 45th minute and he closed the scoring with an unassisted goal in the 88th minute for the final three-goal margin and Carolina's best start since 2005.
DURHAM, N.C.—Three rookies tallied at least one point to lead the No. 21/25 Duke University men’s soccer team to a 2-0 non-conference victory over visiting Davidson College this evening at Koskinen Stadium. Freshmen Kyle Bethel and Joseph Pak were the goal scorers for Duke.
“The good part about this game is that we can not play well and still come out with a victory, and obviously any coach is happy with a shutout,” said head coach John Kerr. “Davidson made life difficult. They came out to play and didn’t just sit behind the ball and they did well and caused us to work harder than we wanted to.”
CLEMSON, SC - Kevin Munz scored the game's only goal in leading Stetson to a 1-0 victory over Clemson in a men's intercollegiate soccer match at Clemson, SC Tuesday night.
With the win, Stetson improves to 3-2 on the year, while Clemson falls to 1-4-1 this season.
