GREENSBORO, N.C. – Senior forward James Pymm (Smithtown, N.Y./St. Anthony's) recorded his second goal of the season, but it was not enough as the Washington and Lee men's soccer team fell to Guilford College, 3-1, on Saturday evening at the Armfield Athletic Center.
Pymm put the Generals (2-4-2, 1-3 ODAC) on the board in the 27th minute with an unassisted marker to give W&L a 1-0 advantage. Guilford (6-3-2, 2-1-1 ODAC) responded in the 39th minute with a tally from sophomore forward Amir Moore to knot the game at 1-1 going into the half.
Guilford added two goals in the second half to secure the 3-1 victory, with senior forward Jordan Alexander recording a goal in the 72nd minute and sophomore midfielder Freddy Gomez finding the net in the 81st minute.
Junior keeper Alex Lambert (Massapequa Park, N.Y./Chaminade) played all 90:00 for the Generals, stopping two shots. Guilford's Michael MacVane also played the duration, recording two saves.
