Sept. 1, 2004
NORFOLK, VA -The #9 Old Dominion University men's soccer team won their home opener Wednesday night, defeating the Campbell Fighting Camels 1-0 at the ODU Soccer Stadium. Kevon Harris (Kingston, Jamaica) scored the winning goal late in the first half, off a free kick. The Monarchs improve to 1-0 for the season, while Campbell falls to 0-1.
Toward the end of a very physical first half, where three yellow cards were handed out, Kevon Harris was able to connect on a free kick near the Campbell goal, at the 42:10 mark, for the game's only goal. The Monarchs held a 14-5 shots edge over Campbell for the game, and also had a 11-5 corner kicks advantage. John Connelly (Rockville, MD) picked up the shutout for the Monarchs, making three saves for the evening.
ODU is now undefeated in their last 17 home games, including NCAA Tournament contests. The Monarchs return to action Saturday, September 4, when they host Davidson at the ODU Soccer Stadium. Game time is at 7:00 PM.
