FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The Salisbury University men's soccer team extended its win streak to five with a 2-0 victory over University of Mary Washington in a rainy conference tilt Wednesday afternoon.
With less than six minutes remaining in the match, Sharpe sealed the deal with a one-on-one goal against Eagles' goalkeeper Ian Waltz. Perry collected his second assist for the contest as he played a seamless pass outside of the 18-yard box for Sharpe to take on Waltz.
The backline continued to play unbreakable defense, collecting its fifth-straight shutout triumph, extending Salisbury's scoreless streak to 450 consecutive minutes. For the contest, the defense held the Eagles to just seven attempts, two on goal. The Sea Gulls still remain the only team in the conference to not give up a goal.
Sophomore goalkeeper Drew Staedeli tallied two saves for the match and his 10th win of the season. He now sports a 0.44 goals-against average, only allowing five goals through 12 games. The Eagles' Waltz pulled in four saves in 90 minutes of play.
The Sea Gulls head to Buena Vista, Va., on Saturday, October 12, for their next contest, to face the Knights of Southern Virginia University. The game is set to begin at 12 p.m.
