The Lead: Adam Cowie-Haskell's '18 two second half goals helped propel the Wesleyan University men's soccer team to a 3-1 road victory over the Colby College Mules on Saturday afternoon. 

HOW IT HAPPENED:

  • Charlie Gruner '17 got the Cardinals on the board early in the game as his goal at 8:48 gave Wesleyan the 1-0 lead. 
  • The Mules responded at the 24:45 mark as Jansen Aoyama scored to tie the game at 1-1. 
  • Cowie-Haskell would break the tie, scoring two goals in less than a minute in the second half. His first goal of the half came at 75:47 as he took a pass from Mike Gallo '20, and put it past Colby goaltender Avery Gibson for the 2-1 lead.
  • Griffin Godsick '20 would set up Cowie-Haskell for the insurance goal at 76:43, and the Cardinals would go onto claim the 3-1 victory.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:

  • Cowie-Haskell's two goals now bring his season total to seven, which is second in the NESCAC. His 16 points this year are also good enough for second in the conference.
  • The Cardinals outshot the Mules 22-17 and put 12 shots on goal to Colby's eight.
  • Wesleyan also held the edge in corner kicks at 6-5.
  • Eric Jasinski '17 earned his first win on the year, making seven saves in the contest.
  • Cowie-Haskell and Godsick led the Cardinals with three shots on goal each.
