Virginia Tech Nips William & Mary, 1-0, In Men's Soccer Opener
Enmark nets only goal in Hokies' victory
September 2, 2000

Williamsburg, Va. - Virginia Tech's Ty Enmark's first half goal proved to be the difference as the Hokies outlasted William & Mary, 1-0, in the opening match of the season for both teams. The start of the game was delayed by an hour and 45 minutes due to lightning in the area. It is the second straight season that Tech has defeated the Tribe.

William & Mary (0-1) dominated the game, outshooting the Hokies 21-3, but it was Tech's first shot that made the difference in the contest. Fred Silva found Enmark with a pass that he took and eluded the Tribe defenders until he got off a shot from 15 yards out that beat W&M goalkeeper Billy Platz at the 19:25 mark.

William & Mary had numerous scoring opportunities, but Tech's goalkeeper, Colin Kibler, kept coming up with the big saves to preserve the Tech lead. He totaled 10 saves on the night to pick up the shutout.

The Tribe was particularly dominant in the second half, holding Tech without a shot, but none of the 12 W&M attempts could find the back of the net.
