In Morgantown, WV, Sporting Carlisle shocked the #19 West Virginia Mountaineers 1-0.  From the opening whistle, Sporting dominated possession, as the ball rarely left the WVU end.  Sporting came close on several occasions, but could not convert.  Nicky Schwab hit the cross bar with a sweet volley, and threatened multiple times.  However, Schwab had the breakthrough, when he took a through ball and slotted home on the breakaway.  WVU was not able to muster a comeback, as the midfield and defense of Sporting came up big.  The backline of Matt Liponis, Clay Hevey, Imran Hasan, and Chris Wolf was strong throughout, while defensive midfielder Al Licata broke up any dangerous attack.  Sporting will take some real momentum with this victory.

Under the lights, Friday night at Shippensburg, Sporting Carlisle opened the spring season with a disappointing 3-3 tie.  Sporting started out well in the first half by keeping possession and dominating the game.  Goals were scored from Jake Hostetler, Nicky Schwab, and a long range effort from Anders Hilton.  However, the second half was another story, as Shippenburg took advantage of a tired Sporting side to score three straight goals.  Shippenburg nearly won the game at the end on a breakaway, but keeper Andrew DiNardo came up with a huge stop to preserve the tie.  Sporting will feel like they dropped two points, but in fairness at least picked up a road point and extended their unbeaten run to ten games.

Franklin & Marshall Tournament

Posted by parkerr on November 10, 2012 at 7:55 PM Comments comments (0)

At local rival Franklin & Marshall College, Dickinson club soccer had a very solid day of play in their last action of the fall season.  In the first game against the hosts, Dickinson came out fast and Al Licata drew a penalty, which was converted by Brad Boehringer.  However, F&M scored to tie the game.  Brad responded though by scoring yet another goal, and Dickinson followed that up with an own goal scored by F&M on a cross by Kyle Klose to make it 3-1 at the half.  Despite this, F&M pulled back another goal.  It looked like the game was truely over when Nicky Schwab converted another penalty, but F&M would not go away and scored again.  However, the Red Devils held on for a 4-3 victory.    

In the second game of the day, Dickinson found themselves against a fresh and talented Millersville University team.  Millersville were strong in the first half and scored the lone goal of the half.  Dickinson though did not fold, and instead pressed forward for an equalizer from Jake Hostetler, with an assist from Brad.  With eight minuetes remaining, Millersville scored what looked like the winning goal, but the Red Devils would not give up, and Brad broke away for the tying goal, his team high eighth of the season.  An energized Dickinson team actually had a few chances to get the winner but could not convert.  Nonetheless, it felt like a win for the Red Devils.  Of particular note throughout the two games was the continued strong play of defensive midfielder Al and keeper Andrew DiNardo.  The day was a huge success for the whole squad, and will give Dickinson confidence going into the spring season.

In Dickinson men's club soccer's inagural home game, they posted a big 4-1 win over #25 Messiah College.  The beginning of the game was testy, fast, and physical, as each team tried to assert themselves in a congested midfield.  However, Brad Boehringer broke through the defense and put away his chance for the first goal.  Later in the half, Brad cooly finished off another chance to make it 2-0 for the Red Devils heading into the half.  Dickinson took control of the game in the beginning of the second half, with Ben Greene breaking away with a long run, and expertly slotting home.  Jake Hostetler completed the scoring for the Red Devils with a shot that deflected off of a Messiah defender.  Messiah got back a consolation goal towards the end of the game, but couldn't muster anything else.  Andrew DiNardo once again stood tall in goal, with a few terrific saves, while much credit also has to go to the whole defense for an excellent effort .  As well, the crowd constantly encouraged the Red Devils forward, and was a great showing for the first ever home game.  Now, the Red Devils are on a three game winning streak, and will look to continue their momentum going into their next game.
