NASHVILLE – Former White House soccer goal keeper Isaac Layman earned a 1-0 shutout victory in his first career college start on Thursday against Cedarville for the Trevecca Trojans men’s soccer program.
The Trojans defeated No. 19-ranked Cedarville and handed them their first loss of the year.
Layman is a freshman and a 2020 graduate of White House High School. See the full story below from Trevecca Nazarene University’s official athletics site.
There are three Blue Devils on the team with juniors Donovan Dixon and Brady Briley also from WHHS.
NASHVILLE– The Trevecca Nazarene University men’s soccer team (3-4, 2-3 Great Midwest) knocked off the No. 19 Cedarville Yellow Jackets (3-1, 3-1 Great Midwest) 1-0 on Thursday, handing the Yellow Jackets their first loss of the season.
That makes back-to-back wins for the Trojans over top 25 opponents, after defeating the No. 25 Lake Erie Storm 1-0 last Saturday.
It was just the second all-time win for Trevecca over Cedarville in the 17th ever meeting, and the Torjans now trail the all-time series with two wins, 12 losses, and three draws.
Cedarville had the early pressure, with three corner kicks in the first 20 minutes of play. The Trojans took the lead in the 23rdminute, with an outstanding individual effort by Bryce-Austin Wahy. On a layoff from Michael Martey, Wahy took a pass from outside of the box with a one-time shot that curled into the top right corner, giving the Trojans a 1-0 lead.
The match evened out throughout the course of the first half, although Cedarville had the majority of shots on goal. Trevecca had a 1-0 lead at the break. The Trojans settled into the second half, never allowing Cedarville to get comfortable in the Trevecca half. Freshman goalkeeper Isaac Layman – making his first career start – made a heroic save on a short-range shot by Cedarville’s Pedro Alvares, and came up with another massive stop in the 89th minute to preserve the clean sheet. The Trojans were able to hang on for the 1-0 victory.
Wahy’s goal marked his first of the season, and the fourth of his Trevecca career. Martey provided the assist. Cedarville outshot Trevecca 16-5, but the Trojans were much more efficient with their targets, as both teams put four shots on goal.
Freshman goalie Isaac Layman made three saves in his starting debut in place of the injured Tyler Delgado and picked up his first 90-minute clean sheet. Layman kept a clean sheet in over 70 minutes of play after entering for Delgado in win over Lake Erie on March 27.
Trevecca will remain at home to host Ohio Dominican on Saturday, before embarking on another road trip to Malone on April 8, and then to Walsh on April 10.
The Trojans will wrap up the regular season and celebrate Senior Day on April 15, in a game against No. 9 Ohio Valley.
