Men's Soccer earned a 2-0 victory over the Central Maine Mustangs on Saturday, Oct. 15. Dominick Simpson scored the first goal in the 10th minute of play and Rosyvelt Baessa added the insurance goal in the second half.
College of St. Joseph dominated Central Maine CC for the majority of the match. The Saints took more than double the shots than the Mustangs. They also controlled the pace of the game and made sure it was played at their preferred tempo. The Saints looked to have control of the match from start to finish and the outcome proves that.
Goalkeeper Kyle Milligan also deserves a great deal of credit for the win. He had a perfect day, shutting out the Mustangs and recording four saves throughout the match.
The Saints are now 11-5 overall and 8-2 in conference play. They have won their last five straight games and are 11-1 in their last 12 matches played. Their only loss in the past month came against the No. 1 team in the USCAA, University of Maine at Fort Kent. They have been steamrolling through the competition and are looking at their best going into the postseason.
The Saints have earned the top seed going into the YSCC Tournament and will be playing Southern Maine CC in the semifinal round on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 11:15 a.m. The YSCC Tournament will be hosted by NHTI.
