Four Skipjacks score to help end four-game skid
Dajani leads way with goal, two assists as Chesapeake improves to 3-4

WYE MILLS – Heading into Wednesday’s men’s soccer game against visiting CCBC-Catonsville, Mohamad Dajani had scored eight of Chesapeake College’s 14 goals this season. Dajani scored another goal against Catonsville, but the Skipjacks showcased a more diversified offense with four different scorers in a 4-1 victory.

"We spread it around a bit on offense," said Chesapeake head coach Mike Moulton, whose Skipjacks (3-4 overall and Maryland JuCo) snapped a four-game losing streak. "We worked in practice on getting more shots and that paid off – we had a 28-11 shots advantage."

Catonsville took a 1-0 lead, but Chesapeake’s Ryan Wheat scored off a Dajani assist to help the Skipjacks create a 1-1 halftime tie. Chesapeake then dominated the second half as Dajani scored the go-ahead goal unassisted and set up a Mike Turner goal. Jake Williams also had an unassisted second-half goal for the Skipjacks.

"I wasn’t very happy at halftime because we missed some good opportunities in the first half," said Moulton, who made some halftime position adjustments that created additional offensive chances.

Dajani, hampered for several games by a right hamstring injury, was "at about 80 or 85 percent" of his old self, according to Moulton.

Chesapeake goalie Jordan Durner made six saves to earn the victory.

The Skipjacks play Friday at Harford Community College.
