-The Lead: Saint Joseph's College toppled Anna Maria College, 4-0, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) men's soccer contest at the SJC Athletics Complex on Wednesday night. Four first-half goals from four different players lifted the Monks to their seventh victory of the season.
How It Happened:
-Senior Trevor Lopes (Cumberland, R.I.) netted what proved to be the game-winner in the 17th minute, when he received a pass from Cody Elliott (Gorham, Maine) and launched a tough angle shot from the right to the upper left 90.
-Sophomore Mitchell Duncan (Sanford, Maine) scored on a Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) feed in the 30th minute and assisted on a Keenan Welzel (Brunswick, Maine) marker three minutes later.
-Sophomore Ryan Buonaiuto (Scituate, R.I.) capped the scoring with his second goal of the year, off a Noah Elmore (Berlin, Vt.) pass, in the 44th minute.
-The Monks split time in net, with junior Blake Mullen (Manchester, Conn.) making a pair of stops in the first half and third-year Coleman Reifke (Loudon, N.H.) posting one save in the second stanza.
-Anna Maria freshman netminder Jeffre Donahue (Rockland, Mass.) tallied 16 saves.
Inside the Numbers:
-Saint Joseph's held commanding leads in shots (41-6), shots on goal (20-3), and corner kicks (8-0) on the evening.
-Saint Joseph's remains undefeated (7-0) in the history of the series with Anna Maria College and has now defeated the AMCATS by a 4-0 score in each of the last three meetings.
