The Lead: R/V Roanoke College topped home standing Randolph-Macon 1-0 in Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Men's Soccer action on Saturday.
How it Happened:
- The first 45 minutes proved to be scoreless with Randolph-Macon holding a 7-4 edge in shots, with neither goalkeeper forced to make a save.
- Roanoke got the lone goal of the match when in the 55th minute Anthony Zarlenga collected a loose ball in the box and connected for his second goal of the season that would give RC a 1-0 advantage.
- The Maroon defense would make the goal hold up allowing just three Yellow Jacket shots in the final 35 minutes, none of which made it on net.
- Zach Behe did not have to make a save to earn the shutout. Anthony Ivanov made two stops for R-MC.
- RC held a 14-11 edge in shots for the match and a slim 4-3 edge in corner kicks.
- The Maroons, who are receiving votes in this week's United Soccer Coaches Top-25 Poll, improve to a 7-0-0 on the road this season.
Up Next: Roanoke returns to action on Wednesday when it travels to Ferrum for a 4:00 p.m. ODAC match.
