Hampden-Sydney Soccer scored three goals in the second half to defeat the Knights of Southern Virginia University 4-0 on Saturday night.

THE BASICS

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Hampden-Sydney wasted no time getting on the scoreboard as Spell Carr sent in a crossing pass that found Paul Mahaffy for a header goal just 3:05 into the contest
  • H-SC outshot the visitors 10-0 in the first half and had several strong chances but was not able to finish
  • The floodgates opened in the second half and the relentless offensive pressure drew a foul in the box on Southern Virginia in the 52nd minute, leading to a Hunter Weiland penalty kick score
  • Six minutes later, Weiland found the back of the net again to provide the Tigers a 3-0 lead
  • The final score came in the 77th minute when a Jack Sweney headed in a Jacob Siler corner kick

COACH DINUZZO'S COMMENTS

  • "Good team effort and it was about time we got into the win column. We're pleased with the whole group, especially considering that we still have quite a few injuries. Now it's time to build on this over the next couple games before ODAC play begins."
