MEN’S SOCCER UPENDED BY SOUTHERN CONNECTICUT STATE, 2-0
New Haven, Conn. – Daquan King scored one goal and assisted on another to lead Southern Connecticut State University to a 2-0 win over the Le Moyne College men's soccer team on Wednesday night in Northeast-10 Conference action at Jess Dow Field.
Southern Connecticut State scored the only goal it would need midway through the first half. King broke free from the Le Moyne defense with the ball and when confronted by the goalkeeper he sent a pass to Kevin Joslyn, who scored his third goal of the season into the open net at the 26:31 mark.
The Dolphins had two shots on goal over the next eight minutes, but Southern Connecticut goalkeeper Stephen Sasso turned each away to keep the Owls in the lead.
After Sasso made a pair of saves in the opening 10 minutes of the second half, the Owls doubled their lead in the 71st minute. King, who scored Southern Connecticut's lone goal in last year's 2-1 Le Moyne victory, broke into the penalty box alone and chipped a shot over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net for his first goal of the season.
Senior goalkeeper Matthew Silva (Brampton, Ontario/St. Augustine) recorded two saves in suffering his second straight loss after registering five consecutive victories. Sasso ended the contest with six saves to record his third win between the pipes. The Dolphins registered a 15-9 advantage in shots, while taking eight of the game's 12 corner kicks.
Le Moyne (5-3, 3-2 NE-10), which dropped to 2-7-1 all-time at Southern Connecticut State, returns to action on Saturday against Franklin Pierce University at 12:00 p.m.
