Bates men's soccer edged by Trinity

LEWISTON, Maine - The Bates Bobcats men's soccer team (5-2-1, 2-2-1) and Trinity College (3-4-2, 1-4-1) combined to score all their goals in the first half Saturday afternoon as Trinity edged Bates by a final score of 2-1.

The loss is the Bobcats' first home defeat of the season.

Trinity got on the board first in just the second minute of action as Dan O'Neil kicked in a deflection in front of the net past Bates keeper Sam Polito to put Trinity up 1-0.

Bates responded in the 34th minute as Max Watson headed in a cross from Noah Riskind to even the match at one. It's Watson's first goal of the season after he scored four last year.

But Trinity took the lead for good late in the first half in the 43rd minute as Tobias Gimand took advantage of some chaos in front of the net to put Trinity up 2-1.

Neither team scored in the second half. Trinity keeper Domenic Quade made six saves on the day.

The Bobcats will look to get back in the win column Tuesday night as they take on Maine Maritime at 8:00 p.m. at Garcelon Field.

Men's soccer tops Maine Maritime on Munoz goal, 1-0

LEWISTON, Maine -- Drew Munoz scored his first collegiate goal in the 77th minute to break a scoreless draw, delivering a 1-0 victory to the Bates College men's soccer team over Maine Maritime Academy on Tuesday night at Garcelon Field.

The Bobcats (6-2-1) notched their sixth victory of the season, the first time they have met that mark since 2008. The Mariners dipped to 3-7-1 on the season.

Bates controlled the game from start to finish, outshooting Maine Maritime by a 23-6 margin, including a 10-0 difference in shots on goal. But the Bobcats couldn't take the lead until 13:10 remained in regulation.

Sophomore forward Nate Merchant (Los Angeles, Calif.) earned the assist, his second of the season, carrying the ball toward the right goal-line before threading a cross through the penalty area, which found its way to Munoz on the left corner of the box. From 20 yards out, the first-year defender powered the ball on one touch into the middle of the goal, just under the crossbar.

The goal came three minutes after Bates' previous best scoring opportunity, when sophomore Justin Yacovino's (North Bergen, N.J.) shot from the top of the box rang off the crossbar. That opportunity followed a pair of close calls from off the foot of senior Luis Pereira (Curitiba, Brazil), both of which buzzed just wide of the goal.

Maine Maritime goalkeeper Marshall Spear had nine saves in back of a stout defense that kept the Mariners in the game. Bates goalie Sam Polito (Far Hills, N.J.) did not register a save but notched his third shutout of the season.

Bates next plays at NESCAC rival Connecticut College on Saturday at 2pm. Maine Maritime hosts NAC foe Husson on Saturday at 3:30pm.

Men's Soccer falls in defensive struggle to Connecticut

NEW LONDON, Conn. - The Bates men's soccer team (6-3-1, 2-3-1) went toe-to-toe with Connecticut College (8-2-1, 4-2-1) on Saturday but fell by a score of 1-0.

The defensive battle saw Connecticut only manage five shots on goal while the Bobcats only tallied two shots on goal. The lone goal in the match came in the 18th minute as Mark Leon snuck one past Bates keeper Sam Polito unassisted to put Connecticut up 1-0.

Polito finished with four saves in the match while his counterpart Austin Dacunha tallied two saves.

Bates got shots on goal from Sean Moyo and Max Watson. Besides that, it was slow going for the offense as they managed just three shots overall. Connecticut on the otherhand tallied 15 shots.

Men's soccer visits Curry on Wednesday with the match starting at 7:00 p.m.

Men's soccer tips Curry, 2-1, on late goal by Lyons

MILTON, Mass. -- Making his first career start, Ben Lyons scored in the 84th minute on an assist by fellow first-year Drew Parsons to send the Bates men's soccer team to a 2-1 non-conference win at Curry College on Wednesday night.

The game was scoreless at halftime, but the Bobcats (7-3-1) took a 1-0 lead on junior Luke McNabb's (Glastonbury, Conn.) first goal of the season, which came on senior Luis Pereira's (Curitiba, Brazil) sixth assist of the year.

Curry (10-5) had managed to keep the score at 0-0 with a couple of big defensive plays. The Colonels' goalkeeper made a great save to deny Pereira in the third minute. That was followed by a goal-line clearance by Curry back Giancarlo Orsini, which prevented a goal by Parsons (Farmington, Maine).

Curry evened the score at 1-1 with about 15 minutes remaining in regulation. Matt Cotnoir's shot was deflected, but Roy Butlin scored off the rebound.

With 83:23 left in the game, Parsons found Lyons (San Rafael, Calif.) cutting in off the left wing, and Lyons drilled in the game-winner on a one-touch shot from 15 yards out.

Bates, which has reached the seven-victory mark for the first time since 2008, will host Tufts on Saturday at 2pm, followed on Sunday by a home match against another NESCAC rival, Amherst, at 3pm.

Men's soccer holds off defending NCAA champ Tufts in 0-0 draw

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College men's soccer team and defending NCAA champion Tufts entered their NESCAC game Saturday with identical overall records, and left the pitch still even after 110 scoreless minutes on Russell Street Field.

The Jumbos (7-3-2, 4-2-2 NESCAC) were credited with 29 shots to eight for Bates, including a 21-4 difference through 90 minutes. But a stout Bobcat defense held off the visitors behind 14 saves from senior goalie Sam Polito (Far Hills, N.J.).

Tufts goalkeeper Scott Greenwood made four saves.

Bates (7-3-2, 2-3-2 NESCAC) came away with a point against Tufts for the first time since 2009, when the teams also tied 0-0. Tufts had won the rivals' previous three matchups by a cumulative score of 10-0.

Kevin Halliday and Nathan Majumder both attempted a team-high seven shots for Tufts, each putting four on goal. For Bates, sophomore Nate Merchant (Los Angeles, Calif.) put both of his two shots on goal.

The Bobcats are tied with Bowdoin for seventh place in the NESCAC standings, with eight points apiece. Tufts stands in third place with 14.

Bates will host Amherst tomorrow at 3pm; Tufts will next play a non-conference game at Keene State on Tuesday at 6pm.

Men's soccer drops decision to second-ranked Amherst

LEWISTON, Maine -- Amherst's Nico Pascual-Leone scored all three of his team's goals on Sunday in a 3-0 loss for the Bates men's soccer team.

The Bobcats (7-4-1, 2-4-1) didn't match up well against the bigger and faster second-ranked and undefeated Lord Leffs (12-0-0, 7-0-0).

Pascual-Leone scored his first goal when another shot deflected off the gloves of Bates keeper Sam Polito. The ball found the foot of Pascual-Leone and he drilled it into the back of the net in the 22nd minute to give Amherst a 1-0 lead.

Playing without leading scorer Peabo Knoth, Bates struggled offensively, tallying eight shots but only three shots on goal.

Polito made eight saves between the pipes for the Bobcats. But Pascual-Leone scored twice in the second half to give Amherst some breathing room.

Jackson Lehnhart assisted Pascual-Leone on both his second half goals, one in the 50th minute and a cross in the 71st minute of action that led to a spectacular finish into the upper-right of the net.

Drew Munoz, Luis Pereira and David Dick all tallied shots on goal for the Bobcats.

The men's soccer team welcomes Middlebury to town on Saturday for the final home regular season match of the season. The match gets started at 2:00.

Big second half pushes Middlebury by men's soccer

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates men's soccer team held the lead at halftime but visiting Middlebury scored four goals in the second half to defeat the Bobcats by a final score of 4-1 on Saturday at Russell Street Field.

Bates (7-5-2, 2-5-2) struggled offensively as they only tallied three shots in the match. But in just the third minute of action senior Noah Riskind found the back of the net on a header for the first goal of his career on an assist from David Murphy.

The Panthers (11-2-1, 6-2-1) had a clear height advantage over the Bobcats entering the match but Bates held them scoreless on nine shots in the first half. In the second half that height advantage began to take hold as Greg Conrad scored in the 60th minute to even the match at one on an assist by Adam Glaser. Less than a minute after the game-tying goal, Tim Ogle scored unassisted to put the Panthers up 2-1.

Conrad scored again in the 78th minute on a beautiful cross from Glaser and Daniel O'Grady capped the scoring with an unassisted goal in the 85th minute.

Bates keeper Sam Polito made six saves in the match while Greg Sydor did not make any saves as the only Bates shot on goal in the match was Riskind's goal in the first half.

The Bobcats conclude their 2015 regular season on Wednesday as they visit Colby at 8:00.

Men's soccer season culminates in 0-0 tie at Colby

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Needing to win in order to reach postseason play, the Bates men's soccer team played to its third scoreless draw of the season Wednesday night at Colby.

The tie ends the Bobcats' exciting season with a 7-5-3 record, including a 2-5-3 mark in conference play, in ninth place and a point behind eighth-place Wesleyan (3-6-1 NESCAC). Bates' seven victories are the most by the program since the 9-6 2008 team. Their five losses are the team's fewest since the 9-4-2 squad from 2005.

Senior goalkeeper Sam Polito (Far Hills, N.J.) submitted an outstanding performance in his final collegiate game, registering four saves and breaking up several other scoring opportunities for the Mules. Seniors Sean Moyo (Bulawayo, Zimbabwe), Luis Pereira (Curitiba, Brazil) and captain Noah Riskind (Bethesda, Md.) also played in the final games of their outstanding careers.

Colby had a 7-2 edge in corner kicks and a 13-10 margin in shots.

The best scoring chance in overtime was in the final minute of the second extra period. Bates first-year forward Ben Lyons (San Rafael, Calif.) ripped a shot from the left side that barely went over the crossbar.

With 3:49 left in the second overtime period, the lights went out at Seaverns Field, leaving the chill, wet pitch in darkness with Colby in the middle of an attack. The game was delayed about 10 minutes before the stadium was again illuminated.
