Eagles Doubled Up by Cobleskill

POULTNEY, Vt. – Emile Vwaza notched a pair of goals as SUNY Cobleskill earned a 4-2 non-league victory over Green Mountain College on Tuesday afternoon at Eagles Game Field.

Cobleskill (5-5-2) broke the game open in the 4th minute as Khadim Diba linked up with David Vosatka for the game's first goal with a pass across the goal mouth from the right side.

Vwaza extended the lead to 2-0 in the 7th minute when he lasered a direct kick home with a shot from the right side just outside of the 18-yard box which beat the GMC keeper to the near post.

Diba struck for a goal of his own to pad the visitor's lead to 3-0 when he collected a ball misplayed by the Eagles' defense and deposited a shot in the back of the net.

Green Mountain (0-9-0) got on the scoreboard late in the first half when Cameron Book (Poultney, Vt.) took a ball deflected off a defender and hit a shot that beat the Cobleskill keeper high, just under the crossbar to send the teams into the half.

The Eagles cut the deficit to one to 3-2 in the 55th minute when Ryan Crozier (Olmsted Township, Ohio) lunged into a shot that ricocheted off a player into the path of a charging Griffin Shelor (Cedar Park, Texas) who dove to push it past the endline before the goalie got there.

Vwaza gave the Fighting Tigers some breathing room converting a penalty kick awarded after a handball was called in the box on an Eagles player which rounded out the scoring at 4-2.

Picking up the win in net for the visitors was Dan Burger who made two stops. Green Mountain was back stopped by Sawyer Levy (Bethel, Vt.) who turned aside five shots in defeat.

The Eagles will host a pair of Maine teams this weekend as Thomas and UMaine-Farmington visit for a two conference tilts.
