HEMPSTEAD, New York - Brett Carrington's goal with less than three minutes remaining in regulation lifted Hofstra to a 2-1 win over visiting UNCW in Colonial Athletic Association men's soccer action on Saturday at the Hofstra Soccer Stadium.

UNCW dropped to 2-6 with its third consecutive setback and 0-2 in the league. The Pride, meanwhile, evened its record at 3-3 overall and 1-0 in the CAA.

"We're disheartened by this loss," said UNCW head coach Aidan Heaney. "Once again we were able to create opportunities, but couldn't capitalize. Credit Hofstra, they played well and were able to create and score late for the win. We need to regroup and get focused for a pair of tough games this week at Coastal Carolina and home against Drexel."

On the winning goal, Carrington carried the ball down the left flank and made a cut back into the penalty area where he beat UNCW senior goalkeeper Brandon Miller for the game winner at the 87:36 mark.

The Seahawks only goal of the evening drew them level as Hofstra was credited with an own goal when A.J. Laza headed a back pass over HU keeper Roberto Pellegrinni.

Tyler Botte opened the games scoring, his first of the season, off assists from Shaun Foster and Carrington following a corner kick.

UNCW outshot the Pride, 16-10, but managed just five on frame.

The Seahawks close out their three-game road stretch on Sept. 28 with a 7 p.m. kickoff at nationally-ranked Coastal Carolina.
