GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Omar Solis scored one goal and assisted on the game-winning tally in Guilford College's 3-2 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) men's soccer win over Shenandoah University Saturday night.
The Quakers garnered their first win of the year and are now 1-9 (1-0 ODAC). The Hornets dropped to 2-6 (0-1 ODAC) with their fifth straight setback.
Guilford's Jason Aguilar opened the game's scoring in the 18th minute. From 15 yards out, he volleyed home a cross from Enrique Gudino on the scoring play. The game remained 1-0 at halftime.
Shenandoah countered with a score by Ben Chisum at the 53:40 mark. Chisum launched a free kick from 29 yards that got past Quakers' goalkeeper Zach Van Kampen. Less than a minute later, a miscue by the Guilford defense resulted in an own goal and a 2-1 Hornets' lead.
Guilford, however, responded with a score by Solis in the 56th minute. He chipped a shot from 20 yards out that skirted through goalie Sam Fischer's hands after the rookie initially caught the ball while falling backward into the goal.
Brayden Currin recorded the game-winner in the 66th minute. On the play, Currin shot in a rebound in front of the net after Fischer stopped a free kick by Aguilar.
Shenandoah led in shots (11-8) and corner kicks (6-2).
