The Emory & Henry Men’s soccer team was in action against Saint Elizabeth, and came out with a shutout victory over the Eagles by a score of 5-0.
Getting these going for the Wasps was junior Tyequis Stallins who placed a free kick right into the head of junior Joel Tidman, who put it in for the first score of the game.
Freshman Will Rimer then took over by scoring back to back goals to push the score to 3-0.
The Wasps would then score again right out of the break, after a corner kick by junior Colin Foley with just over a minute and a half into the second period.
The Wasps would then score their final goal thanks to their senior leader Jordan Couch, who scored an unassisted goal at the 52:00 minute mark.
When asked about the game, sophomore Peyton Williams was impressed by Saint Elizabeth physicality, but was ultimately happy to walk away with the win.
“We didn`t play that well, but we got the win and that`s all that matters.” Williams continued, “They were very aggressive and physical so it was a scrappy game.”
The Wasps next game would be against rival Ferrum, where the Wasps would lose their first game of the year.
The Wasps would fail to score in the first half, and would only see their first goal of the game came from Stallins for his fourth goal of the year.
For Williams, he believes his team was just outworked rather than losing to a better team.
“We played by far our worst game this season. We just never could get into a rhythm and it showed. We were outworked and outhustled.”
Williams then spoke about what went wrong for his team.
“We struggled all game and gave up too many stupid fouls that led to three of their goals.”
Williams believes his team will bounce ack, and he knows where it starts.
“We have a lot of work to do and I hope we`ll get back on the field and go at it hard at practice this week.”
