PAXTON, Mass. - #6/15 Saint Joseph's College (12-0-0, 8-0-0 GNAC) defeated Anna Maria College (2-9-1, 0-6-1 GNAC), 4-0, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) men's soccer game on Saturday night.
Junior Noah Robinson (Wappingers Falls, N.Y.) scored a pair of goals and senior Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) was credited with two assists in a victory that extended the Monks' undefeated streak to 33 games, the longest current undefeated stretch in NCAA DIII Men's Soccer.
THE REST OF THE STORY
Saint Joseph's claimed a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute when Robinson scored off a Mattos feed and doubled the cushion when junior Mitchell Duncan (Sanford, Maine) netted his fourth tally of the season, also off a Mattos pass, at the 52:19 mark.
The Monks' final two goals, scored exactly six minutes apart, came on penalty kick attempts, as Robinson struck at the 67:08 mark and senior Dalton Gaumer (Corona, Calif.) hit pay dirt in the 74th minute to account for the 4-0 final.
SJC sophomore David Walbridge (Hampden, Mass.) earned the shutout in his first career start after making one save while Anna Maria goalie Jeffre Donahue kept the score respectable by making 19 saves in the loss.
Saint Joseph's held sizeable advantages in shots (45-2), shots on goal (23-1), and corner kicks (11-2) in the victory. The Monks set a new team record in shots, breaking the former mark (43) set in a 4-0 win over Rivier University on October 8th, 2011.
Saint Joseph's is now 8-0 all-time versus Anna Maria College and has outscored the AMCATS by a 24-1 margin in the eight meetings collectively.
The Monks return to action Wednesday when they travel to Northfield, Vermont for a clash with GNAC-rival Norwich University. Kick-off between the two undefeated teams is set for 7:00 PM.
