Pappas and DiMarco Strike As CUA Soccer Defeats Goucher,
TOWSON, Md.-- CUA men's soccer (11-3-1, 3-1-1 LC) defeated Goucher College (6-9-1, 0-5 LC) on Tuesday evening, 2-1.
CUA took only eight shots in the contest, but stellar defensive play and timely shooting lifted CUA to its 11th win of the season and third in conference play. Brian Pappas converted on a penalty kick in the 4th minute followed by Michael DiMarco sealing the game in the 69th minute with a goal for the Cardinals.
Goucher outshot CUA in the game, but six saves and strong communication by Quinn Daly kept the Gophers in check. The lone exception to that was in the 20th minute as Evan Rosse found Brandon Nicholson darting through the CUA defense. Nicholson sprinted past the defense and beat Daly one-on-one to knot the game at one goal apiece.
The Cardinals will return to action on Oct. 25 as CUA will host Drew University at the CUA Soccer Fields. Kickoff is set for 3:00 p.m.
