Aston, Pa.-Neumann College came back from a 3-1 deficit in the second half to tie the score at 3-3 but Wesley was too much to handle as the Wolverines went on to score two more goals late in the second half earning a 5-3 victory over the Knights. Neumann's Jesse Urquhart had two goals for the Knights in the loss.
The Knights went up on top early on when Jesse Urquhart sent a low cross and a Wesley defender scored into his own net giving the Knights an early 1-0 lead. Wesley came back minutes later when Peter Hulem headed home a corner tying the score at 1-1. Right before halftime, goalkeeper Brett Fenimore made a great save denying the go ahead goal.
After the break, Wesley came out and opened up the scoring. Justin Lambert slammed home a rebound to take the 2-1 lead. Minutes later, Dom Citino slotted a cross past the goal keeper to the head of Brain McCann to go up 3-1.
The Knights did not back down as Barry Harvey made a great run from the back field to find Jesse Urquhart who put in a superb shot from the top of the box trimming the lead, 3-2. Urquhart did it again when he made a great individual play slipping the ball past the keeper and through two defensemen to tie the game at 3-3.
That would be it for the Knights as Wesley stepped up to the challenge. Off a set piece, Justin Lambert found the back of the net off a header, as Wesley regained the lead. Then Brain McCann scored on a last minute penalty kick giving the away side the victory.
