Roger Williams Edges Wheaton, 2-1

Hoxsie nets both goals for Hawks

NORTON, Mass. – The Wheaton College men's soccer team had its five-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday evening at Keefe Field as Roger Williams University earned a 2-1 victory over the Lyons in non-conference action.

Hawks' senior forward Trevor Hoxsie (Scarborough, Maine/Scarborough) deposited back-to-back goals early in the first half including the eventual game-winner in the 29th minute for his team-leading ninth and tenth goals, respectively.

Wheaton took an early 1-0 advantage at the 20:06 mark as junior Scott Enman (Brooklyn, N.Y./Packer Collegiate Institute) tipped home a rebound off of a shot by teammate Adam Sholi (Sandwich, Mass./Sandwich) for his second goal of the season.

Hoxsie evened the score 37-seconds later netting a free kick just outside the box into the lower right corner of the net. Nearly eight minutes after his first marker of the game, Hoxsie sniped the game-winning goal into the opposite corner as he worked his possession from the left flank into the box against a one-on-one situation.

The Lyons outshot their guests 27-12 in the contest and held a 5-2 differential in corner kicks. Roger Williams junior goalkeeper Tom Mangels (Garden City, N.Y./Kent School) made a game-high nine saves, while Wheaton sophomore goalkeeper Matt Dickey (Newton, Mass./Northfield Mount Hermon School) recorded three stops.

Wheaton (7-2) travels to WPI on Saturday, September 28 for a New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) matchup at 5 p.m. Roger Williams (8-1) heads to Salve Regina on Saturday for a 3 p.m. start.
