Wohl Boots Undefeated Jeffs Past Roger Williams, 3-0

September 12, 2004

AMHERST, MA - Sophomore forward Mike Wohl (Northampton, MA) scored his third goal in two days and assisted on another to lead the undefeated Amherst College men’s soccer team to a one-sided 3-0 victory over visiting non-league foe Roger Williams University on Sunday. Junior goalie Greg Lockwood (Vancouver, WA) needed just two saves to preserve his 10th career shutout, as the Jeffs outshot the visiting Hawks 14-7 and dominated the game defensively.

Wohl helped break the ice 6:27 into the opening half when he stutter-stepped a Roger Williams defender down the right sideline and fed senior forward Joaquin Walker (Denver, CO) for a wide-open chip shot from point-blank range. Wohl then gave the Jeffs a commanding 2-0 cushion at 32:28, taking a long pass from fellow sophomore Rob Madden (New Haven, CT) and slithering past a trio of defenders en route to a deft touch-shot into the bottom left corner of the net.

Amherst maintained its two-goal lead until the 86th minute and finally set the final score at 3-0 on junior Joe Gannon’s (Hanson, MA) first-goal of the season. Junior forward Adrien de Bontin (Kenilworth, IL) set up the insurance tally, winning the ball in the midfield and lofting a picturesque pass down the right sideline to rookie Ryan O’Donnell (Belchertown, MA), who notched his first career assist with a slick pass to Gannon.

Coming off a scintillating double-overtime win over conference rival Trinity College, the Jeffs seemed none the worse for wear against Roger Williams, especially Wohl, who scored a pair of goals, including the game-tying tally in Saturday’s season-opener. Now 2-0 on the season, Amherst returns to action Wednesday at 4:30 p.m., hosting non-league foe Rivier College.
