UAH Dominant Early And Late In Win Over Tennessee Wesleyan

Two goals from freshman Tony Stock paced the Chargers as they cruised to a 3-0 victory over non-conference Tennessee Wesleyan at Charger Field Wednesday afternoon.

UAH dominated possession throughout the first half, but looked destined to head into the interval at 0-0. But with two minutes left in the half, substitute midfielder Ori Ben Shalom slipped a fine ball into Tony Stock in the TNW box which Stock fired high into the right corner of Miguel Valadez’ goal. 1-0 to UAH at the half.

The second half started out a bit scrappier, and just 5 minutes in, UAH ‘keeper ‘Tyler Earley was fortunate to escape a penalty call as he appeared to foul TNW forward Mitchell Slawson in the box. The visitors continued to look dangerous, nearly capitalizing on a UAH giveaway in their own box, but Earley made the save on Slawson’s right-sided effort. With 27 minutes to go in the half, Slawson slipped behind the entire UAH team with the ball at his when hustling Brian Hadley sprinted 40 yards and helped disrupt the freshman striker’s shot, which passed wide of Tyler Earley’s left post.

With 18 minutes left in the match, Tony Stock was awarded a penalty kick after being brought down in the TNW box. He calmly converted the penalty himself for a 2-0 UAH lead. Two minutes later, Charger defender Devin Schlief added a third, as his well-struck free kick deflected off the TNW wall and into the net. Final score UAH 3, Tennessee Wesleyan 0. Next up for the chargers is a critical Gulf South Conference showdown with W. Florida at Charger field October 16. Both teams are 2-0 in conference play.
