Peter Glidden '07

With Peter Glidden '07 (#10, photo) and Sam Griswold '08 both catching the twine twice along with a goal from Matt Nevin '09, the Cardinals coasted (no pun intended) to a 6-0 victory over the Coast Guard Wed., Sept. 27. The game's first goal was an own-goal by the Cadets but Wesleyan had little troiuble tacking on five more before the game was 60 minutes old. Three Wesleyan goalies combined for six saves and the shutout. With the six goals, Wesleyan matched the output of the 2000 squad vs. Albertus Magnus, which won 6-1. The last time a Wesleyan men's soccer team exceeded six goals was in 1972 when the Cardinals downed Trinity, 8-2. Wesleyan, now within two of the team record for most wins to inaugurate a season (eight done by the 1962 squad) will go after win #7 Sat., Sept. 30 at home vs. NESCAC foe Connecticut College. In the latest NSCAA National Division III poll, Wesleyan was just outside the top-25 ranking as one of three teams listed as also receiving votes.
