(NORTH CANTON, Ohio) – A pair of Myles Cornwall goals helped Walsh go past Lake Erie by a 3-1 count in G-MAC play on Tuesday evening. The Cavaliers evened up to 3-3-1 overall and 2-2 in the conference, while the Storm dropped to 1-5 overall and 0-4 in the G-MAC. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Cavs.
Cornwall got the scoring started early as found the back of the net just 123 seconds into the game. He was able to steal the ball on a miscue by Storm keeper Tom John and take it to the right side of the net for the quick lead.
After Lake Erie tied the game nine minutes into the second half, Cornwall finished a beautiful feed from Tim Kohman who crossed the ball from the right side of the box. The pass sailed to the far end of the 8-yard box where Cornwall crashed up the middle for the finish in the 75th minute.
Kohman wasn't done on the night as he found himself along with Simon Miller in a 2-on-1 opportunity with John. Kohman belted a shot from the right side that was saved by John, but the ricochet bounced back to the middle of the box where Miller put it in for an insurance goal with 4:20 left in regulation.
Cornwall now leads the team with four goals. His one assist gives him a tie with Jean Paul Ajala-Alexis for the team-high with nine points.
Walsh outshot the Storm 12-7 thanks to a heavy offensive attack in the first, but were outshot 6-5 by the visitors in the second. The Cavs also held a 5-3 advantage on corner kicks as well.
The Cavs will return to action Thursday when they host Trevecca Nazarene University for a doubleheader with the women. The men are scheduled for a 7:30 kickoff.
