Appalachian concluded their preseason slate with a home win over VMI on Monday afternoon. The weather was great for the 1pm kickoff and so was the Mountaineer defense. Although VMI was able to get nine shots off, only one attempt was on frame. Appalachian was also solid in the midfield with decent possession and the passing was crisp. Appalachian totaled fifteen shots with nine on goal, resulting in four finding the back of the net. David Dodge was the man of the match, scoring goals on his only two shots and adding an assist. Appalachian put three goals in the net in a fifteen minute stretch in the second half and cruised with solid defense in the final twenty minutes. Appalachian hosts East Tennessee State Friday, August 24th with kickoff slated for 7pm.
