DOVER, Del. - Wesley College picked up its fourth tie in Capital Athletic Conference play with a 1-1 draw against Frostburg State.

The Wolverines (5-3-5, 1-0-4 CAC) struck first on Pat Slinka's (Sicklerville, N.J./St. Joseph's Prep) first goal of the year.  Dan Featherer (Columbia, Md./Long Reach) sent a corner kick from the left corner to the far right where the defenseman knocked it home for a 1-0 lead in the 41st minute.

The Bobcats (6-1-4, 1-1-2 CAC) tied things at 1-1 when the Wolverines scored an own goal less than a minute into the second half.
