Early Goal Fails to Hold as Men's Soccer Falls to Salisbury

ST. MARY'S CITY, Md. – The Virginia Wesleyan University men's soccer team fell, 3-1, to Salisbury University Sunday afternoon on the road. With the loss, the Marlins move to 0-5 on the year while Salisbury improves to 4-1.

The Marlins got things going fast, scoring the first goal just 2:25 into the first half. VWU earned a free kick from approximately 25 yards out that Evan Kastetter set up to take. The freshman bent it into the near post where Andrew Freeman headed it in to give the Marlins an early lead.

Salisbury answered back though just over five minutes later, tying It at 1-1 and then take the lead with another goal in the 31st minute. The second half would fail to see the Marlins come back as the Seagulls added an insurance goal in the 68th. Virginia Wesleyan tested the Salisbury keeper at the end of regulation with a pair of shots, but both were stopped.

Griffin Potter was tagged with the loss between the pipes, despite turning aside four Salisbury shots.

Men's soccer will return to action at 7 p.m. on Wednesday as the squad hosts Regent College at the Trinder Center.
