Men's Soccer Defeats Host Randolph-Macon

WASHINGTON- The Catholic University of America's men's soccer team soundly defeated tournament host Randolph-Macon in a non-conference game Saturday afternoon. The match up was CUA's season opener, and the first game in the four-team tournament.

The game was a back-and-forth struggle between two evenly matched teams. Cardinals midfielder Adrian Davis (Towson, Md./Calvert Hall), unassisted, recorded the team's first goal at the 13 minute mark. Defensively, CUA held their opponent to just three shot attempts and one corner kick.

 Randolph-Macon tied up the match within the first few minutes of the second half. The Cards continued to look for scoring opportunities while limiting their opponents. Finally with 30 minutes remaining, Matt Brady (Woodbridge, Va./Potomac) netted what would be the game-winning goal off an assist from teammate Kevin Duffy (Marlton, N.J./Bishop Eustace). Randolph-Macon could not answer back, and the Cards won the game by a score of 2-1.

The team recorded nine shot attempts throughout the match. In the net, goaltender Quinn Daly tallied two saves on the night, as the team notched their first win of the season. The Cards look to improve their record further in the final game of the Randolph-Macon tournament. The team will take the field on Sunday at 12 p.m., against Randolph.
