Late goal lifts Roanoke past Maryville 1-0

The Roanoke College Maroons remained undefeated on the season with a 1-0 victory over the Maryville College men's soccer program on Sunday evening.

The squads battled to a scoreless tie at the half with Roanoke outshooting the Scots 5-2 at the break.

The host Maroons lit up the scoreboard just before the 62nd minute when Dylan Berk created an assist to Alec Taitague for the eventual game-winning goal.

Roanoke's defense limited MC to seven total shots, only three on Maroon keeper Zach Behe who earned the shutout and win in net. The Maroons finished with 11 shots, five on goal for the day.

Maryville (2-2) will now prepare for a weekend road trip next week to Mary Baldwin College and Averett University.
