EMORY, Va. – The Maryville (Tenn.) College Men's Soccer Team (1-0) scored four goals in the opening 45 minutes en route to a 7-0 win over Emory & Henry College (0-1) Tuesday night at Fred Selfe Stadium.
E&H had the first chance of the game as junior midfielder Zach Quest (Charlotte, N.C.) put up a strong shot early in the fourth minute. Freshman midfielder Trey Tumblin (Moneta, Va.) also put a shot on frame late in the first half but it was turned away.
The Scots got on the board early in the 13th minute when Cody VanKerschaever one-timed a pass from Hayden Puryear from the top of the box past the goalkeeper. Maryville made it 2-0 just under five minutes later as Puryear headed in a corner kick from Thomas Whiting.
Two more goals came for Maryville later in the half as it took a 4-0 advantage into the break. The Scots added three second half goals including a left-to-right cross from George Davies to Bret Thomas which he slotted to the back post late with just over 12 minutes to play.
Quest added a pair of shots on goal in the second half, but the Scots' goalkeepers kept them out while sophomore defender Chandler Copeland (Newport News, Va.) had a chance in the final eight minutes of the game on a long free kick.
Junior Didier Grillet (Matthews, N.C.) and sophomore Daniel Scharisch (Newport News, Va.) combined for seven saves in the game, while Maryville's Jon Taylor and Luke Wheat had five combined stops in the shutout victory.
Emory & Henry will travel to Indiana to play in the Raven-Quaker Classic this weekend. The Wasps will face the Anderson University Ravens on Friday at 4:30 p.m.
