Men Top Guilford in Season Opener

Men Top Guilford in Season Opener

The men's soccer team kicked their season off in fine fashion on Saturday evening by topping Guilford College in Demorest, Ga., 2-1. The Petrels got the game-winning goal from Aaron Walker off a free kick in the 67th minute to lift Oglethorpe to victory.

The Petrels drew first blood in the 61st minute on a strike from Ben Robertson that was assisted by Jakub Madej. The Quakers quickly equalized before Walker finished them off with the devastating free kick.

At 1-0 on the young season, Oglethorpe will be back on the pitch tomorrow when they face Berry College in the finale of the Piedmont Invitational at 5:00 p.m.
