Men's Soccer Downs Patrick Henry 3-1

By Dylan Kleintop, Student Reporter

On a rainy Saturday afternoon in Virginia, the Knights secured a 3-1 win against Patrick Henry. This was the first away game for the men, but even with the long road trip, they found themselves victorious again.

The Knights got the scoring started through Kyle Stauffer (right), when he was found wide open in the box after a pass from Taylor Martin. Shortly after the opening goal, Max Thorpe scoredr his first goal of the season, with Dylan Kleintop picking up the assist. The first half ended with the Knights up 2-0.

When the second half started, the conditions worsened. It became harder for the players to keep their footing, sliding all over the place. Late in the second half, Patrick Henry was awarded a penalty kick, and converted the goal from the spot, making it 2-1, with just under 15 minutes to play.

Like they have all season, the Knights did not let the game get away from them. The men fought back to take a 3-1 lead on a goal by Martin, after an exquisite through ball from Ted Kreitz.

After the game, captain Zach Morrill was quick to state “in every game we played against Patrick Henry, the only way they score is on penalty kicks.”

The Knights look to improve to 4-0-1 when they play at Penn State Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Sept. 11.
