|Seahawks Blank Wolfpack In Harry's Game|
WILMINGTON, North Carolina – The UNCW men’s soccer team raised more money for Cape Fear Soccer’s TopSoccer program and tacked on a 2-0 victory over N.C. State as well in the second annual “Harry’s Game” Saturday night at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.
The game is designed to raise awareness for Down’s syndrome and featured fun activities for children, including a bounce castle, slide and face painting, as well as an appearance by popular mascot Sammy Seahawk. A special auction was also held to raise funds.
The TopSoccer program for kids with special needs benefitted from proceeds from the game, which was named after UNCW Head Coach Aidan Heaney’s son, Harry, who was born two years ago with Down’s syndrome. A large turnout of local soccer supporters watched the friendly between the Seahawks and Wolfpack
Junior striker Jamie Dell got the Seahawks on the board quickly in the fifth minute following an assist from David Sizemore. Jack Ward then delivered an insurance goal with less than six minutes remaining in the contest after collecting a nifty pass from Colin Bonner and drilling the ball into the net.
UNCW, which outshot N.C. State by a 15-9 margin, evened its record at 1-1 in “Harry’s Game” after dropping a 2-1 decision on April 6, 2013.
