Moyer’s first career goal gives men’s soccer OT win at York, 1-0

YORK, Pa. – Junior midfielder Jeremy Moyer scored his first career goal with 1:26 remaining in the first overtime to lift the No. 21 Salisbury University men's soccer team to a 1-0 win over York (Pa.) College Saturday.

On the game-winning play, junior forward Phil Bucheimer held the ball at the end line before slipping it back to Moyer at the top of the six-yard box for a one-touch strike into the back of the net to give Salisbury (6-2-1, 2-1 CAC) its second straight victory.

The shot was the Sea Gulls' only on goal in the match as the Spartans held advantages in shots, 16-9, and shots on goal, 3-1, on the day. York (3-4-3, 0-1-2) also led in corner kicks by a 9-3 margin and earned the match's final nine corners, including two in the extra session.

The Spartans' best chance came in the 70th minute when Cody Pearson's free kick hit the crossbar. Senior goalkeeper Brandon Mumby and SU escaped danger and earned the game winner in the 99th minute.

Mumby (2-0) made three saves for the win in the net while Ethan Kavanaugh (2-3) took the loss for York without making a save.

Moyer and sophomore back Chase Humphrey led Salisbury with two shots apiece. Pearson and Chris Weaver each had three shots for York.

SU returns to action Wednesday at 4 p.m., hosting Johns Hopkins University at the SU Soccer Complex.
