The Basics:

-Score: Curry College 5, Anna Maria College 1

-Records: Anna Maria College (1-6), Curry (5-3-1)

-Location: Milton, Mass. (Walter M. Katz Field)

- The Lead: The Curry College men's soccer Team picked up a 5-1 non-conference victory over visiting Anna Maria College Sunday afternoon at Walter M. Katz Field. Senior Giancarlo Orsini (Watertown, Conn.) had a game-high five points on two goals and one assist for the Colonels.

 

How It Happened:

-Curry was first to get on the board just 5:26 into the contest.  Senior Giancarlo Orsini (Watertown, Conn.) sent sophomore Brandon Rinaldi (Watertown, Conn.) a through pass who one-timed it past the glove of Anna Maria's junior keeper Mark Robinshaw (Ashford, Conn.).

-The Amcats answered back three minutes later to even the match at 1-1. The score came off the foot of freshman Nick Lawrence (Attleboro, Mass.).

-Before the end of the half the Colonels would net the eventual game-winner.  Orsini tallied his first of two in the match off a feed from senior Dave Stapleton (North Easton, Mass.).

-Curry dominated the second half with three more goals.  Orsini struck again with help from senior Ben Silvia (Dartmouth, Mass.).  Freshman Alejandro Winsor (Wakefield, Mass.) netted his first collegiate goal after he collected a pass from Rinaldi and sent it to the back of the top right corner of the net.  The Colonels tacked on one more when junior Christian Mancini (Woodbury, Conn.) received a pass from freshman Kuda Mulauri (Harare, Zimbabwe) and put the shot past Robinshaw.

 

Inside the Numbers:

-Curry led in shots, 19-9 while also holding the edge in corners, 1-0. 

-The Colonels freshman keeper Dylan Griffin (Hornell, N.Y.) recorded the victory in the net, making four saves in 72:48 minutes before giving way to senior Adam DiBrina (Sudbury, Ontario) who finished the game in net without facing a shot.

-Robinshaw was credited with the loss while making six saves in 90 minutes.
