Rufus Adams

Norton, MA --- Jackson Conroy (Reading, MA) scored the lone goal in a 1-0 WPI victory over host Wheaton in a NEWMAC men's soccer match Saturday at Keefe Field.

The Engineers (7-2-3) remain unbeaten in conference play with a 2-0-2 ledger. Wheaton (7-6-1) levels off at 2-2 in NEWMAC contests.

Rufus Adams (Duxbury, MA) went almost the entire contest without having to make a save until a header by JD Souza (Wiscasset, ME) at 87:43. Conroy and Mark Calnan (Winchester, MA) each accounted for a pair of shots with both of the goal scorer's going on net.

Alberto Franceschi (Key Biscayne, FL) took half of Wheaton's eight shots while Souza was next with a pair. Netminder Diego Medina (Yonkers, NY) shouldered the decision for the Lyons.

After 90 minutes, WPI had a slim 9-8 margin in shots and 4-1 on-goal. The Lyons, meanwhile, were awarded six of the game's seven corner kicks.

The Engineers now head to Middlebury Tuesday for a 1:30pm contest. Wheaton heads to Babson on Saturday for a 1pm NEWMAC match.
