The Colonials just nip the Panthers by one

            Danbury, Conn. – The Plymouth State University men's soccer team fell to the Colonials of Western Connecticut State University, in an exciting down to the wire match between these LEC rivals.  Plymouth struck first on a surgical strike in close, by Nick Rutherford (Sydney, AUS) scoring his Panther leading eighth goal of the season.  Colonial Chauncey Allers came back quickly to tie it up at one each closing out the scoring in the first half.  Both teams came out charging after the break, and the Panthers would take the lead in the 62nd minute.  After a Panther injury time out at 73:02, following the 3-3 tying goal by WConn's Spencer Ranno, Chauncey Allers would net the final of the game, sealing the win for the Colonials.
