Cardinals pull away from men's soccer for league win

WATERVILLE, Maine -- The Colby College men's soccer team went into the final 15 minutes tied at 1-1, but Wesleyan University's Adam Cowie-Haskell scored two goals in a span of 56 seconds to power the Cardinals to a 3-1 victory in NESCAC men's soccer Saturday.

The two teams traded goals in the opening half and then combined for 23 shots in the final 45 minutes. 
Cowie-Haskell scored the game-winning goal at 75:47 off a centering pass from Mike Gallo. He used his foot on that play and then used his head when he tallied off a header from a corner kick by Griffin Godsick at 76:43.
The Cardinals (5-4-1 overall, 2-4-0 NESCAC) scored at 8:48 when Charlie Gruner knocked in a shot off a scramble in front of the net.
The Mules (3-5-2, 1-3-2 NESCAC) tied the game at 1-1 on Jansen Aoyama's (pictured) second goal of the season at 24:45.
Wesleyan had a 22-17 shot advantage and a 6-5 margin in corner kicks. Eric Jasinski stopped seven shots for the Cardinals, while Avery Gibson made nine saves for the Mules.
