Dayton Earns 2-0 Win Over No. 19 Davidson

October 4, 2014

DAYTON, Ohio – The University of Dayton men’s soccer team opened Atlantic 10 action with a 2-0 win over No. 19 Davidson.

The Flyers handed the nationally ranked Wildcats their first loss of the season, a big feat considering Davidson entered the game as the No. 3 team in the country according to the RPI rankings.

Both teams had trouble finding an offensive rhythm early in very cold temperatures. The first 20 minutes of the first half resulted in two shots for Davidson and one shot for UD, with neither team recording a shot on goal.

Finally, all of the Flyers hard work paid off when senior Greg Enstone’s header on the cross from freshman Dillon Nino found the back of the net with 36:18 remaining in the contest.

With 33:25 remaining in the contest, senior Ryan Peterson’s pass to grad student Daniel Spencer set up a clear pass to junior Kissima Bojang, who drilled the ball in the left lower corner to make the score 2-0 in favor of the home team.

Those goals would be all Dayton would need to send Davidson home with the 2-0 loss.

The Flyers recorded their first win over a ranked opponent this season and earned their first Atlantic 10 victory in the conference opener.

Bojang recorded his first goal of his career while Enstone picked up his second this season. Nino, Spencer, and Peterson all recorded their first assists in 2014.

Goalkeeper Chris Froschauer totaled four saves and earned his sixth shutout of the campaign.

The Flyers (5-3-2) will next host George Mason Friday, Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.
