Hamel nets game-winner in victory over first place Willamette

TACOMA, Washington –The Puget Sound men's soccer team took down first place Willamette, 1-0, on East Field Sunday afternoon.

The Loggers outshot the Bearcats, 4-1, in the first 45 minutes, but both teams entered halftime scoreless.

The first and only goal of the match came from Puget Sound in the 85th minute. Freshmen Sean Hamel netted a picture-perfect cross from Sam Gonzalez, defeating the Willamette defense and sealing the Loggers 1-0 win.

The Bearcats recorded a corner kick and a shot after Hamel's goal, but failed to find the equalizer. 

Goalkeeper Wren Norwood secured the Loggers win with three saves.
