BLACKSBURG, Va., Aug.
24, 2012 -- The James Madison men's
soccer team out-shot Richmond 14-5,
but the Spiders converted their first shot of the game and held off the Dukes
for a 1-0 win Friday in the Hokie Invitational.
Timmy Albright scored for the
Spiders just 7:25 into the match, and that was enough to give UR the win.
UR goalkeeper Thomas Hand made five
saves to get the shutout. Hand made one
stop on a shot by sophomore Boyd Reid (Ajax, Ontario/Pickering) in the closing seconds of the game.
Dukes redshirt junior goalkeeper Colin Newcity (Harrisonburg,
Va./Harrisonburg) had one save.
Four of JMU's starting 11 were in the Dukes' starting lineup for the first
time in their college careers.
It was the season-opening game for both teams.
JMU next faces Southern Illinois-Edwardsville in a noon game Sunday in the
final round of the Hokie Invitational.
