CHAMBERSBURG (SEPT. 29, 2019) — The Wilson College men’s soccer team was in action WEDNESDAY as they played host to the Saints of Marymount University. The Phoenix (2-5, 0-0) defeated the Saints (4-4, 0-0) by a final score of 2-1.
How It Happened:
Wilson was first to strike as freshman Garrick Hill (Chambersburg, PA., Chambersburg) got set for a corner kick. Hill would find freshman Victor Ortiz (Caguas, Puerto Rico, Ana G. Mendez University System) who would bury a header into the back of the net, tipping the score to 1-0 in favor of the Phoenix. The Wilson defense would come up big for the rest of the half as they were able to ward off the Marymount offense. The Phoenix would enter the half leading, 1-0.
Picking up in the second half, the Saints would strike back. In the forty-ninth minute of play, Marymount would march down the field and launch a strike from beyond the 18-yard line that tied the match up at one apiece. Wilson would not be denied, they would answer back shortly after. Hill got set to take another corner and would find Aaron Harrison (Archbald, PA., Valley View) on the cross who headed the back past the keeper to push the Phoenix out in front, 2-1.
Both teams would continue to fight for another scoring opportunity but neither team could capitalize as Wilson would march to a 2-1 victory.
