After losing Richey last week for the season with a broken leg, the Huskies continued their strong play, scoring three first half goals including two just before halftime. The Dawgs didn’t let up in the second half, pouring in two more goals and holding on for the 5-0 shutout.
Thirty minutes later, the Dawgs added a second goal, as Michael Harris drilled in a corner kick after Ingham had punched it out.
The Dawgs could smell blood. After the restart, talented true freshman Cristian Roldan scored his first collegiate goal, stealing a pass and dribbling past three defenders before unleashing a blast that found the far post netting, giving the Huskies a commanding 3-0 halftime lead.
The Dawgs put the game away in the second half, with goals by Darwin Jones and a second by Harris.
“They gave us the ball in places we could be dangerous,” Huskies head coach Jamie Clark said. “But at the same time, we did defend quite a bit, but we were happy to and I think good teams are happy to defend.”
The Huskies return to the pitch on Sunday when they host Georgia State.
