Enmark scores in impressive tie for Hokies
October 21, 2001

The Virginia Tech men's soccer team battled the St. John's Red Storm to a 1-1 draw Sunday afternoon in Blacksburg, Va. St. John's is currently fourth in the nation by the NSCAA/adidas Poll released on Oct. 15.

The Hokies struck first in the match when Ty Enmark (Sterling Heights, Mich.) scored at the 38:33 mark. There was a scramble in front of the St. John's goal and Bobby O'Brien (Williamsburg, Va.) took a shot that deflected off of the Red Storm keeper. Enmark saw the loose ball and chipped it in to give Tech the advantage. The goal was Enmark's second of the year and there was no assist on the goal.

St. John's would tie the match at one goal apiece when Angel Rodriguez scored at the 69:37 mark. Rodriguez was open outside of the box and Alberto Duenas sent him a pass. Rodriguez took the ball and floated a shot over the head of Hokie goalkeeper Colin Kibler (Virginia Beach, Va.) Duenas was credited with an assist.

Tech and the Red Storm would go on to play over fifty-minutes of scoreless soccer that was very physical at times. Both teams had several opportunities to end the game but neither could capitalize.

Kibler was instrumental in the Hokies' tie. He played the entire match in goal, collecting 10 saves on 26 St. John's shots. Guy Hertz also played the entire match for the Red Storm, producing one save on 13 Hokie shots.

With the tie, Tech is now 7-5-1 overall and 1-4-1 in the BIG EAST. St. John's now has an overall record of 8-0-3 and is 4-0-3 in the conference. The Hokies are back in action Wednesday when they travel to Morgantown, W.V. to take on the Mountaineers. The match is set to begin at 7 p.m.
