October 9, 1998

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – American’s Jamie Dulin one-touched a sliding pass from Scott Weber into the net, giving the American Eagles a 2-0 lead over the Cavaliers with just over 20 minutes to play, and that goal stood up for the game-winner as the Eagles upset the previously unbeaten Cavaliers tonight 2-1 in the opening round of the 1998 Coca-Cola Classic.

The loss snaps the nation’s longest unbeaten streak at 10 games as Virginia falls to 8-1-2 while American improves to 3-6-1.

After a scoreless first half, the Eagles gained the advantage as an Eagle shot was misdirected into the cage by a Cavalier defender just 10 minutes into the second period. Angel Lanchas’ shot was misplayed by a Virginia player and redirected into the net past a sprawling Brock Yetso. Fourteen minutes later the Eagles went up by two on Dulin’s goal.

The Cavaliers answered eight minutes later as Chris Albright (Philadelphia, Pa./William Penn Charter) , the Cavaliers’ leading scorer, took a long ball from Ryan Trout (Media, Pa./Strath Haven) and sent it past the American keeper Jeff Angelucci, who had come out to play him. Virginia kept the pressure on, but the Cavaliers were unable to put the ball in the net.

In the night’s first game, Marshall defeated Adelphi 1-0 in overtime. The Coca-Cola Classic continues on Sunday, October 11 as Marshall faces American at 12:00 and Virginia takes on Adelphi at 2:30.
