SALISBURY, Md. – The No. 18 Salisbury University men's soccer team picked up its third-consecutive win with Wednesday's 2-0 victory over Johns Hopkins University.
The first half of the game was evenly matched and featured an abundance of midfield play. Only three total shots were taken in the half; one of them was by Sea Gull junior midfielder Jimmy Mundy which was blocked. The teams went into the half tied at zero.
Salisbury (7-2-1) grabbed control of the game in the second half with a goal less than 10 minutes into the period by sophomore forward Trevor Sharpe. Sharpe took a leading pass from senior midfielder Morgan Hunt, dribbled past a Blue Jay defender and put the ball in the back of the net.
The Gulls later padded their lead with an insurance goal in the 84th minute of the contest. From just outside the 18-yard box, freshman forward Matt Greene flicked a pass over a defender to Sharpe who ripped a shot for his second goal of the game. With the two-goal day, Sharpe is now the team leader in the category with five goals.
The Sea Gull defense, led by juniors Kyle Simmons and Nate Woods, stifled the Blue Jays' (5-3-3) offense. They allowed only 10 shots on senior goalkeeper Brandon Mumby during the game. Mumby finished the game with five saves for his third win and second shutout of the season.
Salisbury will be in action again as The College of New Jersey comes to the SU Soccer Complex on Saturday to take on the Gulls. The game is set to start at 2 p.m.
