Second Half Goal Lifts Panthers Over Hampden-Sydney

HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, Va. – The Birmingham-Southern men's soccer team made the most of its shot opportunities Sunday en route to a 2-1 win over Hampden-Sydney College.  Josh Wild (Brentwood, Tenn./Brentwood HS) scored the game winner in the 60th minute.  The Panthers finished second in the Tiger/Wildcat Classic and had four named to the all-tournament team.

 

BSC opened scoring in the third minute.  Wild passed the ball to Dallas Coyne (Vestavia Hills, Ala./Vestavia Hills HS) who lofted it over the advancing goalie.  The 1-0 lead lasted until the 41st minute when Hampden-Sydney scored the equalizer just before the break.  Wild's game winner was assisted by Tylan Jones (Peachtree City, Ga./College of Charleston).

 

The Panthers improved to 5-1 overall with the win.  They return home on Saturday, Sept. 24 to open Southern Athletic Association play against Hendrix.  Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m.
