Williamsburg, Va. -- In the much-anticipated rematch of the 2016 Colonial Athletic Association Championship, the University of Delaware men’s soccer team battled William & Mary to a 1-1 draw Sunday afternoon at Martin Family Stadium. The Blue Hens (5-2-2, 2-1-1 CAA) struck first in Sunday’s defensive battle when John Schroeder scored his first goal of the season in the 61st minute.

Delaware enjoyed the slim 1-0 lead until the 83rd minute when the Tribe (4-4-3, 0-2-2 CAA) found the equalizer. The Hens and Tribe battled the remainder of the second half and both 10 minute overtime periods, but neither squad was able to find the winner.

Todd Morton made a pair of saves Sunday, including a diving stop on an Antonio Bustamante, shot from about 25-yards out deep into the second overtime.

Head Coach Ian Hennessy

"I’m very happy and pleased to come away with a point tonight against a very competitive William and Mary team. They have played a very tough schedule this year playing against ACC and Big Ten teams, and we knew they would be a difficult team to beat at their place. They had us on the back foot for periods and our lads dealt with that extremely well. Overall, we were disappointed to give up such a late equalizer, but at days end they deserved to pull level. The CAA is showing yet again just how competitive it is top to bottom, so we are delighted to be in second place at the moment heading back home to Grant Stadium for a game against Penn.”
