"This was a fantastic team effort for us today," Connecticut College Head Men's Soccer Coach Kenny Murphy said. "The backline was great. Lucas Corrubia was outstanding. Colin Patch played midfield and shut down their All American."
In an evenly played game with the Camels holding a slim 13-11 edge in total shots, Hawkey proved to be the difference as his diving header from right in front of the net off a centering pass by freshman Matthew Bitchell beat Wesleyan senior keeper Adam Purdy (six saves), who had just saved an initial shot by Hawkey from the left side. The rebound found its way to the right side of the Wesleyan zone, and Bitchell sent a low centering pass that Hawkey put his head on to break the tie. Hawkey had generated the Camels best scoring chance in the first half but his shot from 15 yards out on the right side trickled just wide of the far post with five minutes left in the period.
