MEN, Christopher Newport 2, Wesley 1: The Wolverines were on the receiving end of a bad hop that proved to be the difference.

On a ball played into the Wolverines’ box, a Wesley defender made an attempt to clear the ball, but it skidded off the wet pitch and took an uncharacteristic hop into the defender’s arm. A handball was called, granting CNU a penalty kick. The Captains scored on the kick to take an early 2-0 lead, and their fortunate tally proved to be the difference in the game as Wesley fell 2-1.

Tanner Yaw made nine saves in his first career start in goal for the Wolverines. Matt Dina scored for the Wolverines, marking his first career goal. Will Mileski earned the assist on the play.

WOMEN, Christopher Newport 9, Wesley 1: Katie Ford finished with the Wolverines’ tally on the night while Sam Brannigan made a career-high 17 saves. Amanda Deputy made a save as well over the final 10 minutes of play.

The Wolverines were held without a shot on goal in the first half as the Captains dictated the pace of play and placed 13 shots on goal in the first frame.
