Men’s Soccer Extends Unbeaten Streak, Edges Cobleskill 3-1

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – Powered by two goals from freshman Hunter Sowersby (Sidney, N.Y.), the Wells College men's soccer team posted a 3-1 victory over the Fighting Tigers of SUNY Cobleskill Saturday afternoon. With the victory, the Express remain unbeaten on the season (4-0-1, 1-0-1 NEAC) and remain in the midst of their best start in program history. The Fighting Tigers (0-3, 0-2 NEAC) remain winless on the year following the North Eastern Athletic Conference tilt.

Sowersby opened the scoring on the afternoon, forcing home a feed from classmate J. Tyler Adams (Eastampton, N.J.) in the game's 26th minute to place Wells on the board first. Sophomore Max Cherry (Ridgewood, N.J.) scored the second goal of the game for Wells with only 47 seconds remaining in the first half, scoring weakside off of a deflected shot.

The Fighting Tigers scored only 5:21 into the second half of play, using an unassisted J.C. Barrientos strike to halve the Express advantage. Wells, however, quickly countered with a goal only 1:25 later from Sowersby to conclude the game's scoring. With his second goal of the game, converted off of a pass from senior Adam Sullivan (Ithaca, N.Y.), Sowersby became the first freshman men's soccer player at Wells since Delroy Roberts '12 to score two goals in one game as a rookie – Roberts accomplished that feat against D'Youville College on Oct. 25, 2008.

Express goalkeeper C.J. Bayly (Waymart, Pa.) picks up the 21st victory of his playing career after making eight saves in the complete game victory. Tucker Lewis made 13 saves for Cobleskill in the loss, allowing three goals on 16 shots faced. Wells out-shot the hosts by a 21-to-13 margin and had a 5-to-3 edge on corner kicks in the tilt.

Wells returns to action Tuesday, Sept. 17 as they face-off against the Saxons of Alfred University on the road in a 7:00 p.m. game.
