WWU men bounce back with 1-0 win over Notre Dame de Namur

Forward Tye Hastings scored the lone goal and Keegan Rogers made five saves to earn the shutout as Western Washington University defeated Notre Dame de Namur University, 1-0, on Monday night in a non-conference men’s soccer contest at Harrington Field on the WWU campus.

The Vikings improved to 2-2-0 overall while playing the second of five consecutive home contests. They lost the opener 2-1 in overtime to Cal State East Bay.

NDNU fell to 1-3-0 despite having a 14-8 advantage in shot attempts.

Hastings scored the game-winner in the 73rd minute. Gabriele Zaccagnini appeared trapped deep in the right corner, but found room to drive a cross into the penalty area, and Hastings converted it with a right-footed volley from seven yards out.
