Alan Ashenfelter '09 Nets Deciding Goal in 76th Minute to Propel Cards Past Coast Guard, 2-1
Alan Ashenfelter '09 (#12, photo courtesy of SteveMcLaughlinPhotograpy.com) tracked down a failed Coast Guard clear just outside the box, dribbled toward the middle and sent a bounding shot inside the near post for the game-winning goal vs. the Bears Wed., Sept. 26 in Middletown. That tally came in the 76th minute, breaking a 1-1 deadlock, giving the Cards their ninth win over Coast Guard in the last 11 meetings between the teams. Ozzie Parente '09 had spotted Wesleyan a 1-0 lead earlier in the 2nd half, taking a smart pass from Austin Woolridge '11 and depositing the ball into the net from close range. Coast Guard responded seven minutes later with the tying goal. Wesleyan faces its second straight New London opponent when the squad travels to Conn. College Sat., Sept. 29 for its next start.
