Keuka College 1 vs. Wells College 0

The first half was evenly played between the Wolves and the Express with possession being battled for in the middle third for most of the 45 minutes. Wells had a couple of early attempts as did the Wolves. Keuka was able to get in behind the back line of the Express, but a shot attempt went just wide. In the 40th minute off of a corner, the ball found Claude Tuyishimire in the left side of the box. The sophomore volleyed the ball past the keeper and the ball crossed the line just before a Wells defender was able to clear the ball to give Keuka College a 1-0. The Wolves carried that lead into halftime.

Keuka College played tough defense in the second half. The Wolves held the Express to just two shots in the half and Keuka College didn't not allow Wells to build any offense off of their two corner kicks. The Green and Gold would preserve the shutout as they defeated Wells College 1-0 on Wednesday.

KC Notes:

  • Keuka College improves to 8-3-2 all-time against the Express
  • The Wolves snapped a two-match unbeaten streak for Wells
  • Claude Tuyishimire scored his first goal of the season on Wednesday
