Sophomore Adam Cowie-Haskell registered a goal and an assist to lead the Wesleyan University men's soccer team to a 3-0 win over visiting Colby College in a NESCAC tilt Saturday Oct. 10 at Jackson Field. The Cardinals are now 6-2-1 overall and 3-1-1 in conference. They are 5-0-1 in their last six games.
Cowie-Haskell got the scoring started just 5:31 into the game when he ripped a shot into the lower left corner of the goal from five yards out after a centering pass by senior Max Jones (Chicago, IL). It was Cowie-Haskell's sixth goal of the season.
Senior Hans Erickson made it 2-0 at 26:56 ripped a shot from the top left corner of the box past Colby freshman goalie Tyler Mulberry. Cowie-Haskell was credited with the assist, his first of the season.
Wesleyan outshot the Mules 11-2 in the half, and Colby managed just one shot on goal.
The Cardinals closed the scoring just 2:53 into the second half on a goal by Chris Kafina, his team-leading seventh of the season. The goal was thanks to a great individual effort by freshman defender Teddy Lyons (East Hartwick, VT). He took the ball up the right sideline from just inside midfield, cut to the middle all the way into the box and chipped a shot on goal from about 20 yards out. Kafina redirected the shot past Mulberry for the score.
Colby's best chance to score came with nine minutes left in the contest on a free kick from 25 yards. Senior Dan Vogel ripped a blast right to the middle of the goal that relief goalie Brian Harnett (Montclair, NJ) cradled for the save.
The Cardinals outshot Mules 20-11, 12-5 on goal.
Colby is now 2-6-2 overall and 1-4-1 in conference play.
