Wooster, Wabash Tie in Final NCAC Game

Senior Ousmane Sy scored his first goal as a Scot in his final game on Saturday.

WOOSTER, Ohio – The College of Wooster men's soccer team and Wabash College traded goals within a two-minute span, and that was the only offense either team could convert in a 1-1 tie on Saturday.

The Scots' lone goal came via a penalty kick scored by senior Ousmane Sy in the 38th minute. Will Yakubik was fouled in the box to give Sy the opportunity to put Wooster on the board.

Sy went left for the goal, and it was the senior defender's first collegiate goal.

Unfortunately for the Scots, Wabash marched down the opposite side of the field and tied it 1:18 later. David Riggs rebounded a blocked shot and scored his third of the year.

Playing in the cold and rain, neither team could get much going. Wooster outshot Wabash 14-9 and led in corner kicks 6-4.

Will Collis played the entire 110 minutes and collected three saves.

It was both teams' final NCAC game of the season. Wooster finished at 8-6-3 overall and 4-3-2 in the NCAC, while the Little Giants ended at 12-3-3 overall and 5-2-2 in the conference.

The tie gave Wabash a spot in the upcoming conference tournament.

Wooster needed a Denison loss to Ohio Wesleyan on Saturday to make the tournament. However, Denison defeated the Battling Bishops 2-1 late Saturday to take the final spot in the NCAC Tournament.

Yet, it was a solid season for head coach Andy Zidron and his squad. Wooster won eight games for the first time since 2006 and also had their first winning record since 2006. They tied for fifth place in the NCAC, which again was their highest finish since 2006.
