Skipjacks’ three-goal second half beats Allegany
Thompson scores game-winner; Reese notches goal and assist
WYE MILLS Conor Thompson’s goal off a John Pellerin crossing pass midway through the second half broke a 1-1 tie Saturday afternoon as Chesapeake College erupted for a 4-1 men’s soccer victory over visiting Allegany College of Maryland.
Jeremy Stewart scored off a Cody Reese assist three minutes after Thompson’s goal and defender Austin Patchett followed with an unassisted goal as the Skipjacks (2-7 overall, 2-5 league) pulled away. Chesapeake head coach Mark Dennis said the three-goal, second-half explosion was at least partially the result of the Skipjacks’ offensive persistence.
"We kept getting shots but missing and I began to wonder if we were ever going to find the net," said Dennis, "but our guys played with great intensity on offense and kept at it until we were able to score."
Allegany (2-8-1, 2-7-1) jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a Bradley Tyler penalty kick in the game’s third minute after Chesapeake was called for a trip in the box. Chesapeake goalie Lucas Hayman (five saves) then shut out the Trojans for the game’s final 87 minutes.
Reese (goal, assist) tied the game with 17 minutes remaining in the first half, scoring off a Jake Williams feed. It stayed tied until Thompson’s goal opened the floodgates for the Skipjacks.
Allegany goalie Corey Yatz finished with four saves.
"Lucas Hayman had a strong game in goal," said Dennis. "Dominic Ramos, Dan Martinsson and Jake Williams were the strength defensively for us in the middle of the field setting up our play. We have worked really hard in practice the last couple of weeks on our positioning and shape and we reaped the fruits of that labor against Allegany. "
Chesapeake’s next game is at Howard Community College Tuesday at 3 p.m.
