William & Mary Slips Past Men's Soccer At ODU Classic

Sept. 17, 2006

Box Score

Norfolk, Va. - A second-half tally by William & Mary's Brock Jones broke a 1-1 halftime tie and gave the Tribe a 2-1 victory over Loyola's men's soccer team at the Old Dominion Classic on Sunday afternoon in Norfolk, Va.

The Greyhounds, who fell to host Old Dominion on Friday night, found themselves trailing early when Doug Ernst took a pass from Andrew Howie and scored the game's first goal in the 16th minute of play.

Loyola responded nicely in 27th when senior Julian Cantillo sent a cross to the middle, where teammate Camilo Correa was waiting. Correa's shot beat Tribe keeper Brennan Wergley and the match was knotted at 1-1.

The game remained tied at the half with Loyola holding a slight edge in shots (5-4) and a 3-0 advantage in corner kick opportunities.

That halftime momentum, however, was short lived. William & Mary was able to score the go-ahead goal only one minute into the second half. The Loyola defense, led by a stellar performance from senior goalkeeper Justin Chelland, kept the Tribe off the scoreboard for the remaining 44 minutes. The offense, however, was unable to get the equalizer, dropping the `Hounds to 0-6-1 on the season.

Chelland finished the game with six saves, five of which came in the second half. He, along with freshman defender Tennant McVea, were named to the all-tournament team while William & Mary took home the team crown based on a goal-differential tie-breaker.

Correa's goal was his first of the season and third of his career. Cantillo, with the assist, now has three points for the year.

Loyola will play its fourth consecutive road game this Saturday at Richmond. The Greyhounds have won all three previous meetings with the Spiders, most recently a 1-0 win in 2001. Saturday's game is slated for a 7 p.m. kick-off.
