Hampden-Sydney Soccer didn't need overtime on Wednesday as they defeated the William Peace University Pacers 2-1. The win extended their undefeated streak to three games.

THE BASICS

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • H-SC dominated time of possession for much of the first half, and the Tigers got on the scoreboard at 16:56 when Hunter Weiland's shot from inside the left of the 18-yard box deflected off a defender and into the goal
  • Each team would muster a few more promising possessions the rest of the half but neither team was able to convert
  • The Pacers tied the game in the 49th minute as Chris Deleon converted off a Jose Garcia-Ramirez pass
  • Josh McCormack netted what would prove to be the game-winning goal at 75:15 when he scored up the middle of the 18-yard box.

COACH DINUZZO'S COMMENTS

  • "It's probably fair to say that tonight wasn't our best performance. William Peace played well, and we were fortunate to get a result. Having said that, once again we showed our resilience, and a number of guys really stepped up off the bench and gave us a lift, which was ultimately the difference in the game."
