Salisbury earns win in four-goal effort at Wesley

DOVER, Del. – The Salisbury University men's soccer team picked up another Capital Athletic Conference victory on Wednesday night in a 4-0 win over Wesley College.

The Sea Gulls benefitted from four different goal scorers and a stout defense that forced senior goalkeeper John Vnenchak to only have to make one save on the way to the win.

The game was scoreless for the majority of the first half, but in the 39th minute, senior forward Phil Bucheimer broke the game open with the Gulls' first goal.

Salisbury took the 1-0 lead into halftime while outshooting the Wolverines, 5-4, and leading the corner kicks, 3-1.

Forwards, senior Adrian Tombini and sophomore Matt Greene, both scored in the second half to remain tied for the team lead with six goals each and put the game away for the Sea Gulls.

Tombini's goal came in the 59th minute when he headed a rebound past the keeper.

Sophomore midfielder Stephen Poorman gave the Gulls a 3-0 lead in the 71st minute on a free kick, ripping a shot into the top right corner.

Greene capped the game with a score on his only shot of the game, late in regulation.  Greene and Bucheimer capitalized on the two-on-one breakaway with Bucheimer leading Greene past the defense to assist on the goal.

Bucheimer led the Sea Gulls with three points.

The Sea Gull defense only allowed 11 shots and one shot on goal in the game, allowing Vnenchak to pick up his eighth win of the season.

Salisbury will return to the SU Soccer Complex for its next game as the Gulls welcome St. Mary's College of Maryland for their final CAC regular-season game; kickoff is set for 2 p.m.
