The Wells College men's soccer team faced an explosive offense and spent most of the day on defense as the SUNY Cobleskill men's soccer team defeated the Express 4-0 Saturday at Wells. Express goalie Mike Birklin(Cicero, NY) finished with 14 saves. The Fighting Tigers were led by Kwame Sarpong, with two goals, and Aaron Gallusser with one goal and two assist.
The Fighting Tigers started the scoring on an incredible pass across the box from Gallusser that found a streaking Carlton Wildman Jr. to give the Fighting Tigers a 1-0 lead just five minutes into the game. Cobleskill finished the first half with an unassisted goal by Gallusser, with less than two minutes left in the first half, to extend the lead to 2-0.
Sarpong would add two late goals in the second half to give the Fighting Tigers a 4-0 lead.
With the loss the Express fall to 3-6-2 while the Fighting Tigers improve to 5-4-2.
The Express will be back in action at home against Medaille College on Tuesday, October 14, at 4:00 pm
