Wildcats Men's Soccer Falls to Dayton

DAVIDSON, N.C. – Thor Helgason’s team-leading fifth goal of the season lifted Dayton over Davidson, 2-1, in both team’s Atlantic 10 Conference opener Saturday evening at Alumni Stadium.

The game-winner came in 72nd minute off an Alvaro Navarro corner kick.

Dayton (4-5-2, 1-0-0 A-10) wasted little time grabbing the early advantage as Rok Taneski finished a Jonas Fjeldberg centering pass 4:11 into the contest.

The Wildcats celebrate the goal from John Dale.

Not long after, the Wildcats’ John Dale provided the equalizer with his first career goal, when he tracked down a Ned Morrissett blocked shot.

Despite the setback, Sam Bissett finished with five saves for Davidson, which fell to 5-3-1 (0-1-0 A-10) on the season.

Members of the 1992 Final Four team were honored this weekend as Davidson College celebrates the 25th Anniversary of their storybook season.

Up Next
Davidson will play its next two on the road beginning with a 7 p.m. game at VCU Wednesday, before traveling to Olean, N.Y. for a Saturday afternoon contest with St. Bonaventure.
