Covenant Men’s Soccer Handles Emory & Henry, 2-0, Wednesday Evening

LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, Ga. – The Covenant College Men's Soccer Team (2-5) picked up a 2-0 victory over Emory & Henry College (2-6-1) Wednesday evening at Scotland Yard.

After a scoreless first half, the Scots needed less than eight minutes in the second frame to find the back of the net. Tyler Morrison received a cross from Garrison Dale that he volleyed into the net to make the score 1-0.

Five and a half minutes later (58:33), Matt Hudnut was able to get Covenant's second goal of the match. Hudnut dribbled past the defense and ricocheted a shot off the far post and past the keeper.

The score would remain 2-0 for the rest of the match as neither team was able to find the goal in the final half hour.

Covenant goalkeeper Shuler Polk picked up the shutout as he made three saves on the night. E&H senior Justin Spencer (Statesville, N.C.) made 10 saves despite the loss.

Covenant held a 20-6 advantage on shots, including 12 on goal, and was called offside eight times.

Emory & Henry will return home on Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m. The Wasps will play host to the WildCats of Randolph College in Old Dominion Athletic Conference play. The contest will also serve as Friends and Family Night for E&H.
