Dajani’s 11th goal gives Skipjacks a sudden win
Chesapeake reaches .500, extends unbeaten streak to three games

CUMBERLAND – Suddenly – very suddenly – the Skipjacks are back at .500.

Mohamad Dajani scored his 11th goal of the season seven minutes into sudden-death overtime Wednesday afternoon to lift Chesapeake College to a 2-1 men’s soccer victory over Allegany College of Maryland. Daniel MacFarland’s throw-in set up Dajani, who took one touch, turned and fired home the winning goal as the Skipjacks (4-4-1 overall and Maryland JuCo) extended their unbeaten streak to three games.

"That was probably our best game of the season," said Chesapeake head coach Mike Moulton after the Skipjacks rallied from a 1-0 deficit by out-shooting the Trojans, 20-11. "I’m real proud of the boys – they hung in there. We’re going to savor this one for a day and then get ready for (first-place) Howard."

Chesapeake hosts undefeated Howard Community College (10-0-2, 8-0) Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. before finishing the regular season with league games against Cecil College (1-9, 1-8) and Montgomery College/Rockville (7-6-1, 3-3) and a non-conference contest against Delaware Tech/Terry Campus (9-4). A split of the four remaining games would allow the Skipjacks to finish the regular season at .500 – a far cry from last year’s 0-12 record.

"Back at .500 – that’s the goal," said Moulton.

That goal seemed unlikely after Allegany’s Tyler Sechler scored in the game’s opening minutes to give the Trojans a 1-0 lead, but Luis Ortega scored the equalizer unassisted just before halftime.

Chesapeake goalie Jordan Durner finished with six saves.
