Men’s Soccer Picks Up a Key Road Win Over Bucknell, 2-1
Another multi-goal effort powered the Army West Point Men’s Soccer Team past the Bucknell Bison by a score of 2-1. Colman Kim and Andrew Guerra scored the goals for the Black Knights, whose defensive effort proved to be too much for the Bison, as Army moves to 2-0 in Patriot League play. Firstie captain Jacob Suppiah put together another great performance between the posts, recording three saves off 14 Bucknell shots to lead Army to the win.
In their first road matchup of Patriot League play, Army went out and set the tone early at Emmitt Field, recording the first seven shots of the contest and forcing the Bison keeper to make several difficult saves early on. The Black Knights attacking line of John Poncy, Justin McStay and Andrew Guerra created several scoring chances early. Atef Sikazwe and Sean Lee both entered the game midway through the half to put more pressure on the Bison.
Suppiah and the Army backline of Suppiah, Luke Doyle, Jack Eaton, Nick Atkinson and D'Anthony Brown were able to hold the Bucknell attack at bay to head into the break deadlocked at zero. Army didn't take their foot off the gas pedal, creating a scoring opportunity just three minutes into the second half. It was Andrew Guerra who was able to break the tie after taking the feed from Jack Eaton and bending a shot around the Bison keeper to lift Army to a 1-0 lead. The goal was Guerra's third of the season. Read more.
