Keydet Men’s Soccer Welcomes Regent Tuesday
LEXINGTON, Va. – The VMI men’s soccer team hosts Regent University Tuesday at 4 p.m. in non-conference action from Patchin Field. The Keydets will not play another home game for two weeks.
Howard defeated VMI 4-2 on Saturday in a game that was called with 10:30 left in the contest due to adverse weather in the area and after nearly an hour delay. The Bison took a 2-0 lead on a pair of penalty kicks. VMI would rally, as Fabian Munoz-Velasquez scored on an assist from Michael Ogenyi at 71:52. Duncan Dunkwu netted back-to-back goals to put the Bison ahead 4-1 at the 76:51 mark, but Nathan Lam found the back of the net off of a rebound from an Ogenyi shot with 10:30 on the game clock. The game was then delayed and later called due to lightning strikes in the area after Lam's tally.
Regent University, from Virginia Beach, is a member of the National Christian College Athletic Association. The Royals (2-6) lost to Barton College on Wednesday in Wilson, N.C. 2-1 Xzavier Funderburk had Regent’s goal and Emmett Hammersley made seven saves.
