SMU advances to Elite Eight beating William & Mary

The fifth seeded SMU mens soccer team advanced to its first NCAA men's soccer regional final since 2005 by edging #12 William & Mary 1-0 on Sunday night.   An early goal from senior Josue Soto proved to be the game's only tally.

SMU scored the game's lone goal in the 11th minute when Robbie Derschang stole the ball from a William & Mary defender in the corner of the field, then fed the ball to Ian Kalis at the top of the circle. Kalis found Soto, who powered the ball into the net for his seventh goal of the season.

Kekoa Osorio nearly doubled SMU's lead in the 13th minute when his long shot was bobbled twice by William & Mary keeper Andrew McAdams and the ball only inches outside the goal line.  The Mustangs team leader in goals, Juan Castillo, twice broke past the William & Mary defense to force a one-on-one against the keeper and just missed doubling SMU's lead each time, as the keeper parried the shot on his first break and as the shot skimmed wide on his second break.

William & Mary's Nathaniel Baako had a goal disallowed with 25 seconds remaining in the contest, as the Tribe sent players forward in attempt to tie the score. Baako was ruled offside on his potential tying header, to allow SMU to survive the final scare.

William & Mary's best chance came in the 81st minute when James Lofton hit the crossbar from the left side of the six yard box. Craig Hill recorded three saves on the night to earn the clean sheet.  The Mustangs face #4 North Carolina in Chapel Hil next weekend for a trip to the 2010 NCAA College Cup.
