NCAA Round-Two Win.
In the 40th minute, on their third corner kick in a row, [Kevin Ruck] put a sketchy header into the net as it slipped through the hands of Fairfield keeper, Jon Paul Francini.
In the second half, a cross from the right hit [Pat Healy's] feet as he delivered a rocket to the chest of Jon Paul Francini; the ball ricocheted off his chest and to the head of diving Nino Mangione who drove the goal home.
Just when I thought the game was sealed, a penalty kick was issued for Fairfield. [Billy Chiles]made one of his biggest saves of season blocking it and then recovering his own rebound. The Tigers sealed the victory with that save.
The Tigers now 7-0-1 at home face Wake Forest in the third round of the NCAA tournament.
