Men’s Soccer: Pospichal nets game-winner as VMI beats SVU, 2-1
The Keydets were tested from the beginning with junior Broden Schull making some early saves. However, the Knights’ Landon Shelton got on the board first in the ninth minute off a rebound. After alternating shots on goal, sophomore Michael Ogenyi answered with a goal assisted on a freshman Warner Collier cross just before halftime at the 41:06 mark. Both teams had five shots at intermission.
The shots continued for VMI in the tie game late into the second half. Pospichal netted the deciding goal after a through ball from senior Willson Tuck with eight minutes remaining.
A strong second half led to a 12-9 shot advantage for the Keydets and 6-1 edge in corner kicks. Schull ended with five saves and a win in net. The Knights Spencer Young had four saves.
The Keydets (1-1) return home to host Marymount University this Saturday at 3 p.m.
