Webb Scores Two Goals to Lead Tartans in 2-1 Victory Over NYU

(New York, N.Y.) - Junior Connor Webb (Dallas, Texas/J.J. Pearce) scored two goals to lead the Carnegie Mellon University men's soccer team (8-4-1, 2-1-1) to a win over New York University (11-3, 2-2) in an University Athletic Association (UAA) contest played Sunday afternoon.

The Tartans scored for an early 1-0 lead in the ninth minute of play.  Webb sent a ball to the corner of the goal, it hit off the goalkeepers hand, but went in favor of Carnegie Mellon as it found the back of the net. 

Despite earlier shot attempts from sophomore Tristan Lockwood (Victor, N.Y./Victor) and junior Stefan Dasbach (Philadelphia, Pa./Wissahickon), the Tartans ended the first half of the game one goal ahead of the Violets.

The Violets were able to tie the game at 1-1 ten minutes into the second half as Reece Barton dribbled through the Tartans defense at the top of the box and scored towards the upper right of the goal.

In the 62nd minute of play, Webb scored his second goal of the game and his 10th of the season after he took a penalty kick that was saved by keeper Lucas Doucette but not secured, giving him another chance at the goal that put the Tartans up 2-1, which would hold until the end of the game.

The next competition for the Tartans, another UAA matchup against Case Western Reserve University, will be held at Carnegie Mellon on Friday, October 31 at 5:00 p.m.
