Hartford, Conn. – The Trinity College men’s soccer team suffered its third NESCAC loss of the season, falling to Williams at home on Saturday, 2-0. The Bantams (1-5) had a handful of opportunities to score in each half, but couldn’t find the back of the net in the setback.
It took Williams less than ten minutes to open the scoring. Sophomore Will Felitto (Winnetka, Ill.) took a feed off a corner from senior Liam Bardong (Manhasset, N.Y.); inside the box, he was able to pop a one-time shot into the left side of the net to give the Ephs a 1-0 lead.
After holding the Ephs scoreless through the remainder of the first half, Williams replicated its start to the game in the second half. Less than ten minutes into the second half, senior Demien Gass (Houston, Tex.) found the back of the net for the fifth time this season. During a Williams counter, Felitto moved just outside the 18-yard box on the left side and slid a pass through the box; Gass hit it with his right foot, sneaking it across the outstretched dive of sophomore relief goalkeeper Anes Gadun (Clinton, Conn.) to double the score.
The Bantams mustered just one shot on net in the contest, and was outshot in total by the visitors 9-3. Junior goalkeeper Andrew Clark (Short Hills, N.Y.) finished the first half with one save, while Gadun earned a game-high two saves in the second half.
Trinity returns to action Wednesday, September 25, traveling to Western New England. Kick-off is slated for 4 p.m.
