PSU Men’s Soccer falls short at WestConn

Panthers remain winless in Little East 

            DANBURY, Conn. – Sophomore Seungwoo Lee (Bethel, Conn.) scored a goal and assisted on another Saturday afternoon to provide a spark in the Western Connecticut State University men's soccer team 2-0 victory over Plymouth State University at The WAC on Saturday afternoon.

            Lee, along with Daniel Sanchez (Canaan, Conn) and Matthew Hoffman (Bridgeport, Conn) entered the game together at the 27:32 mark of the first half. Exactly two minutes later, all three were in on the Colonials first goal in over six games. Lee was on the receiving end of two quick passes from Sanchez and Hoffman and deposited his first career goal past the diving PSU keeper Bjorn Ohlsson (Halmstad, Sweden).

            With just over 15 minutes before intermission, Lee set up WestConn's insurance goal when he initiated the corner kick tha Taras Zyma (Bristol, CT) deposited into the onion bag. It was Zyma's first career goal as well.

            The Colonials' victory lifts them to 2-5-1 overall and 1-2 in the Little East Conference. The Panthers, 2-6-1 overall and winless in the league at 0-3, finished with a slim advantage in shots, 12-11, but the WestConn defense allowed just three quality shots on the afternoon.

            Jack Holub (Sherman, CT) registered his second shutout of the season while making three stops for the winners. Ohlsson made six saves for Plymouth State.

            The Colonials host Worcester State University on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.  PSU continues a three-game road swing Tuesday at Tufts (7:00 p.m.)
