Thomas goal helps Cards top Chesapeake
Catonsville uses late first-half goal to break 1-1 stalemate
WYE MILLS Jordan Thomas’ tie-breaking goal with just over two minutes left in the first half Tuesday afternoon helped the Cardinals take control of a 5-1 men’s soccer victory over Chesapeake College.
Thomas floated a direct free kick from the sideline over Chesapeake goalie Jeremy Wallace and into the upper far end of the goal to give CCBC-Catonsville a 2-1 halftime lead. Cardinals Kevin Medrano, Denair Mitchell and Cody Koester each scored goals in the first 15 minutes of the second half to seal the victory.
Catonsville (1-6, 1-2) took a 1-0 lead on an "own" goal surrendered by the Chesapeake defense, but Austin Frazier scored off a Luke Kulynycz feed to tie the game with eight minutes left in the first half. Thomas’ goal allowed the Cardinals to regain the momentum.
Catonsville finished with a 7-5 shots advantage and each team had four corners.
"You look at any stat other than the score and we were right there but, unfortunately, the score is what counts," said Chesapeake head coach Mark Dennis. "Catonsville capitalized on our mistakes and defensive breakdowns.
"We will stick together and work to correct things," added Dennis, whose team fell to 1-4 in the league and overall. "This is a very close-knit team that I know is far better than what we showed today."
