Oct. 9, 2010
WILMINGTON, NC - Freshman Alex Vaughan's second goal of the season lifted Old Dominion to a 1-0 win over UNCW as the Monarchs snapped the Seahawks 14-game Colonial Athletic Association unbeaten streak on Saturday at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.
The Monarchs improved to 6-3-2 overall and 2-1-2 in conference play. The Seahawks, meanwhile, dropped to 7-4 and 3-1.
ODU jumped out the gate early rattling off the first five shots of the game with Vaughan scoring on a tough angle shot in the 13th minute. The play started with him taking a corner kick and playing a short pass that was deflected back to him. Vaughan then cut past his defender towards the end line where he penetrated the defense and snuck his shut inside the near post.
In the 34th minute, UNCW nearly tied the match when senior Allen Lomax sent a low-lining cross into the box that skipped past ODU goalkeeper Evan Newton, but senior Devon Carroll's shot sailed wide right. Newton and the Monarchs
ODU and UNCW both had 10 shots each, and the Monarchs had three shots on goal to the Seahawks two. Evan Newton had two saves for ODU in the net while UNCW's Brock Duckworth also had two saves.
The Monarchs are off for a week until next Saturday when they host Towson at 7 p.m.
