W&L Men's Soccer Defeats Stevenson, 2-1, in Overtime

LEXINGTON, Va. – The Washington and Lee men's soccer team increased its winning streak to three games with a 2-1 overtime win against Stevenson on Saturday afternoon at Watt Field.

With just 13 seconds left in the first overtime, sophomore forward Zach Colby (Prairie Village, Kan./Shawnee Mission East) used a corner kick by junior midfielder Zach Clarke (Beaumont, Texas/Monsignor Kelly) to head in the game-winning goal for the Generals. With the win, W&L is now 3-0 on the season and Stevenson dropped its first game to hold a 3-1 overall record.

After a scoreless first half, SU senior forward Kevin Rama (Upper Marlboro, Md./DeMatha) notched the first goal of the game in the 58th minute to put the score at 1-0 in the Mustangs favor. Clarke answered late in the second stanza with an unassisted tally at the 85:53 mark to tie the score at 1-1, sending the contest into overtime and allowing the Generals to set up the game-deciding play.

Keeping the ball on W&L's side of the pitch much of the game, the Blue and White outshot SU by a margin of 16-9.

Sophomore Albert Civitarese (Bridgeville, Pa./Sewickley Academy) was in net for the Generals, collecting two saves and one goal-against while playing the entire 99:47.

Splitting time in goal for the Mustangs were sophomore Pat Carey (Brooklyn Park, Md./North County) and first-year Danny Krotz (Crofton, Md./Mount Saint Joseph). Carey spent 64:35 protecting the net and tallied four saves, while Krotz recorded two goals-against and one save in the remaining 35:12.

W&L returns to the field Sunday, when they host Dickinson for a 2:00 pm contest.
