HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – The fourth-seeded Hofstra University men’s Soccer team fell to fifth-seeded William & Mary College, 4-1, in a Colonial Athletic Association quarterfinal at Hofstra Soccer Stadium Saturday night.
The Pride ended its season at 6-6-6 with a 3-1-3 record on home turf. The Tribe improved to 9-4-5 and advanced to play top-seeded James Madison in the CAA semifinals next weekend.
CAA leading scorer Antonio Bustamante, who scored all four of William & Mary’s goals, opening the scoring in the sixth minute. The Pride knotted the score at 1-1 in the 27th minute, with sophomore Oscar Ramsay netting his team-leading fourth goal on a back-heel off a Jon Fraser corner kick.
Bustmante made it 2-1 with just under 10 minutes remaining in the first half before scoring his third early in the second half.
Tribe goalkeeper Phil Breno made a diving save on a Sean Nealis header midway through the second half to prevent Hofstra from closing the gap, and Bustamante sealed the win with his fourth goal moments later.
