Senior Night for the Bryan College men’s soccer team was special. On a crisp autumn night, senior Charlie Clarke scored both goals in his final home game of his collegiate career. Clarke scored twice in the 64th minute, giving him and the Lions a special night.

Tennessee Wesleyan entered the match with offensive powerhouse Harry Baggaley, who leads the nation with 23 goals. The Bulldogs had confidence that he would be able to score at least once, but Bryan’s collaborative defense neutralized him. Baggaley did not find the back of the net, which was uncommon for the Bulldogs as they have scored in every match this year, except this one. The Bulldogs did create shots, 10, with 6 on goal. Senior goalkeeper for Bryan, Alex Horton, an EHS major, had 6 saves.

After Clarke scored the first goal in the 64th minute on a corner kick, the Bulldogs lost their composure, which then led to Clarke scoring again 50 seconds later. The Lions stunned the Bulldogs with the 2-0 win on Senior Night. Tennessee Wesleyan falls to 12 wins and 5 losses as Bryan earns its 9th win on the season. They now have 9 wins, 5 losses and 2 ties. The Lions head to St. Andrews on Saturday, October 27 at 3:30 pm for their last game of the regular season.
