UM men’s soccer dominates in win
FROM STAFF REPORTS
The University of Montevallo men’s soccer team traveled to Americus, Ga. on Wednesday to take on Georgia Southwestern. Montevallo controlled the game from start to finish and boarded the bus back home having secured a 4-1 victory.
The Falcons controlled the game early. A free kick by Jackson Tolleson led to Andre Williams getting the ball to senior Ricky Davey, and Davey was able to score the first goal of the contest at 20:06 and put the Falcons up by the score of 1-0.
Before the first 45 minutes came to a close, freshman standout Jeffrey Hessenberger extended the Montevallo lead to 2-0. That was Hessenberger’s fifth goal of the season; he is Montevallo’s leader in both points and goals. The score came at 39:18, and Davey recorded his third point on the game, as he was credited with the assist.
Davey would not be done stuffing the stat sheet, however, as he again put the ball in the back of the net just four minutes into the second half. Davey’s second goal of the game was his third of the year.
Not to be outdone, Hessenberger also scored his second goal of the contest in the second half. The goal was Hessenberger’s sixth of the year.
Georgia Southwestern would eventually put one on the board at 78:22, when Ron Calle scored his fourth goal of the season. However, as the buzzer sounded, Montevallo still had a convincing win of 4-1.
The Falcons dominated all aspects of the contest. They were able to amass 24 shots (14 on goal), while the Hurricanes only had two shots. Montevallo also had 11 corner kicks, and Georgia Southwestern had none.
Montevallo will look to build off their win on Saturday, October 19, when they host USC Aiken on Senior Night at Varsity Field. The game will start at 7:30 p.m.
