Monks and Huskies Duel to 1-1 Stalemate in Season Opener

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph's College (0-0-1) opened the 2015 season with a 1-1 deadlock versus University of Southern Maine (0-0-1) at Westerlea Way Field on Tuesday evening. Freshman forward Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) netted his first collegiate goal, off an Austin Bell (Gorham, Maine) pass, in the 62nd minute to tie the game, which ended nearly 60 minutes later in a 1-1 tie.

The Huskies struck first, as freshman forward Jonathan Bobe (Portland, Maine) redirected a corner kick with a header past Monks' senior keeper Scott Benner (Post Falls, Idaho) with 4:28 left in the first half. Senior midfielder Adam Simpson (Scarborough, Maine), who sent the ball in the box on the right corner, was credited with an assist on the play.

After a lackluster first half, the Monks kicked off the second stanza with much improved pace and sustained the effort for the remainder of the contest. Junior midfielder Johnny Thomas (Boston, Mass.) led the performance with multiple scoring chances over the first 15 minutes of the latter half, including a wide-angle shot that clanged off the left post in the 52nd minute.

Saint Joseph's finally hit pay dirt in the 62nd minute when Bell sent a free kick into the box, finding Mattos, who finished the play with a rocket past USM freshman keeper Simon Hulbert (Bar Harbor, Maine).

The Monks continued to apply pressure, particularly late in the second frame as the hosts tallied eight shots in the final 10 minutes of regulation, including a near miss by Bell as time expired.

With daylight waning, the pair of overtime periods featured few scoring chances for either side, with Hulbert turning away the Monks' prime scoring chance with a stop on a Thomas bid in the 107th minute.

Hulbert made four stops in the tie for USM while Benner recorded a pair of saves on the evening.

Both teams resume action Friday, when Saint Joseph's plays at University of New England at 7:00 PM and USM hosts Westfield State in a 4:00 PM kick-off.


BEYOND THE BOX SCORE

Benner, making the 50th appearance of his collegiate career, made a pair of saves in the stalemate and is now 21-24-4 through three-plus seasons. The senior captain now ranks third all-time in goalkeeper games, behind Jeff Yaeger '04 (70) and Michael Bolanz '00 (64).
Although he did not find the scoresheet, Thomas dazzled in his SJC debut with a game-high eight shots while constantly applying pressure on the USM defense.
A total of 10 new players debuted for the Monks tonight.
A pair of returners - senior Ralph Houanche (Port-au-Prince, Haiti) and junior Sean Baker (Medfield, Mass.) - began the season with impressive individual efforts.
Saint Joseph's is now 9-13-4 (.409) all-time in season-openers and 3-5-4 (.375) when starting the season at home.
Today's result is the second 1-1 opening day score in the program's 26-year history, as the Monks tied the Hawks of Becker College by the same tally on September 6th, 2004.
Southern Maine owns a slight edge over St. Joe's in the history of the series with a 12-10-4 mark versus their in-state rival. The Monks' 1-0 overtime loss at USM last season (9/10) snapped a five-game-winning streak against the Huskies as the Royal Blue have lost to Southern Maine just once in the last six years.
The Monks and Huskies played to a 1-1 stalemate on September 18th, 2005 – the only other time the teams matched tonight's score in the history of the series.
Tonight's tie is a career-first for second-year Head Coach Adrian Dubois and the first for the Monks since the Royal Blue dueled Salve Regina to the same 1-1 score exactly two years ago. In fact, St. Joe's has recorded just five ties in the last 88 games – a span of nearly four-and-a-half seasons.
For the Monks, tonight's shot total is the most recorded in a game since the team rattled off 42 in a win over Maine-Presque Isle on September 7th, 2013. Last season's high-water mark for shots: 26 versus Maine-Farmington on September 23rd.
UP NEXT

The Monks are 2-7-2 all-time versus University of New England and suffered a 2-0 setback at the hands of the Nor'easters in Biddeford last fall. UNE also opened the 2015 campaign tonight and defeated Maine Maritime, 2-1, on the road. Last season, the Nor'easters went 9-7-2 overall with a 3-5-1 mark in Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) play.

Monks Tip Nor'easters 1-0, Ramirez Nets Winner with 18 Seconds Remaining

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- First-year Jesse Ramirez (Dumont, N.J.) scored with 18 seconds remaining to provide the Saint Joseph's College Monks with a 1-0 win over the University of New England in a non-conference men's soccer match played Friday evening (Sept. 4) under the lights at Barbara J. Hazard Field.

With the win, the Monks remain unbeaten (1-0-1) on the young season, while the Nor'easters dip to the .500 mark at 1-1-0.

Just when it appeared as if the match might head to overtime, Ramirez notched his first collegiate goal to send the visitors home triumphant. Senior captain Nate Fox (South Portland, Maine) found Ramirez open at the top of the box, and the rookie forward took one touch after receiving the feed and drove a low shot that grazed off the left post and over the goal line.

The Nor'easters had their best scoring opportunity of the game in the 65th minute, but St. Joe's senior goalkeeper Scott Benner (Post Falls, Idaho) came up with consecutive stops to keep the contest scoreless. UNE junior Ryan Stephens' (Stow, Mass.) initial shot from point blank range was denied by Benner, and a follow-up header by Stephens was also turned aside.

Benner finished with eight saves for the Monks, who led 16-12 in shots.

UNE senior goalkeeper Nate Diffin (York, Maine) had four saves, including a nice stop in the 83rd minute to keep the game scoreless.

Saint Joseph's will look to keep its record unblemished when its hosts UMaine Fort Kent on Monday (4 p.m.). The Nor'easters entertain non-conference foe Bowdoin College the following evening (7:30 p.m.).

Maine-Fort Kent Tops Saint Joseph’s, 3-2

STANDISH, Maine – University of Maine-Fort Kent (6-0-0) edged Saint Joseph's College (1-1-1), 3-2, in a non-conference men's soccer contest at Westerlea Way Field on a muggy Monday afternoon. Monks goalkeepers Scott Benner (Post Falls, Idaho) and Blake Mullen (Manchester, Conn.) split the match in net and combined to make 11 saves in the loss.

Fort Kent wasted no time getting on the board, as the visitors scored twice in the first three minutes of the game. Senior Ross Downie (Edinburgh, Scotland) scored on the Bengals' first shot of the match just 17 seconds into play and senior Daniel Blackwood (Black Rives, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica) placed a shot past Benner at the 2:38 mark to make it a 2-0 game before fans had a chance to settle in their seats. Kalusha Kotes (Montego Bay, Jamaica) was credited with an assist on the latter tally.

To the Monks' credit, the early deficit did little to affect their efforts as the hosts quickly bounced back and applied pressure in the offensive end. After nearly 25 minutes of solid play by both sides, the hosts got on the board when freshman Jesse Ramirez (Dumont, N.J.) placed an odd-angle shot low into the left corner off the net. Senior Ralph Houanche (Port-au-Prince, Haiti) set up the play with a nice tap pass from the top-middle of the box.

Houanche set up the tying goal as well, as the senior launched a direct kick - after a foul which resulted in a yellow card – taken from the edge of the box on the left directly to the head of junior Sean Baker (Medfield, Mass.), who finished with a header into the left corner for the first goal of his collegiate career.

The 2-2 deadlock carried into intermission and beyond, although Fort Kent applied plenty of offensive pressure early in the second stanza but could not convert, as Mullen – making his NCAA debut – made several diving stops and freshman Dalton Gaumer (Riverside, Calif.) led the defense with a handful of heady plays.

The Bengals took advantage of a defensive breakdown to net the eventual winner at the 66:46 mark. Facing an odd-man rush after failing to clear out of their end, the Monks were out of position on the back line and Mullen left his post to challenge, but Fort Kent freshman Rodney Witter (St. Elizabeth, Jamaica) side-stepped the keeper and tapped the ball into an empty net.

St. Joe's had few chances to knot the game once more as Fort Kent maintained possession for the lion's share of the remaining minutes.

Benner made four stops in the first half while Mullen, who took the loss, notched seven saves in the closing 45 minutes. UMFK keeper Butch Forbes (Miami, Fla.) recorded a pair of saves on the afternoon.

Saint Joseph's travels to Green Mountain College for a 4:00 PM non-conference contest on Thursday. Fort Kent plays at Maine-Machias on Wednesday at 4:00 PM.


BEYOND THE BOX

With today's setback, the Monks fall to 10-7-0 all-time versus the Bengals – a team Saint Joseph's has not played since October 16th, 2005 when the Royal Blue defeated UMFK by a 2-1 tally on the road
Fort Kent entered today's contest having not allowed a goal in the last three games, defeating opponents Thomas College, Crandall University and Maine Maritime Academy by a 16-0 combined score
Saint Joseph's owns a 1-1-1 record through three matches four the fifth time in program history (2003, 2005, 2009, 2012, 2015)
Freshman Joe Fusaro (Hawthorne, N.J.) made his NCAA debut in today's contest while junior James Barlow (Manchester, England) and sophomore Daniel Fox (South Portland, Maine) made their season debuts this afternoon
UP NEXT

Saint Joseph's is 3-10 all-time versus Green Mountain, a team the Monks have not faced since 2006, when the Royal Blue defeated the Eagles by a 3-2 score on October 14th in Poultney, Vt.
Green Mountain is 0-2 this fall with a pair of losses in the Fourth Annual Cadet Kickoff Classic at Norwich University over the weekend – the Eagles suffered losses to Newbury College (8-2) and tourney-host Norwich (10-0)

Monks Topple Eagles, 11-0

POULTNEY, Vt. – Junior Johnny Thomas (Boston, Mass.) scored a hat trick while sophomore Austin Bell (Gorham, Maine) scored a pair and added two assists as Saint Joseph's College (2-1-1) cruised past Green Mountain College (0-3-0), 11-0, in a non-conference men's soccer contest on Thursday afternoon.

Saint Joseph's (2-1-1) got on the board early in the first half as freshman Jesse Ramirez (Dumont, N.J.) found the back of the net after a nice set up from classmate Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) just 37 seconds into the game.

Bell notched his first of two in the ninth minute of play when Eagles' keeper Samuel Nichols made a nice save on a penalty kick but could not corral the rebound. Bell made no mistake the second time tapping home the carom.

Thomas put home his first of the game in the 14th minute as he converted a pass from teammate Jeremy Caruso (Pembroke, N.H.). Saint Joseph's scored four more times in the span of nine minutes to take a commanding 7-0 lead into the break.

Freshman Erik O'Toole (Oslo, Norway) finished a nice passing play set up by classmate Kartikeya Swarup (Delhi, India) at the 27:06 mark and then Swarup himself swooped in from the wing and beat the Eagles keeper for his own mark just over a minute later. First-year Joe Fusaro (Hawthorne, N.J.) scored a pair before half to end the scoring in the opening stanza.

Bell and Thomas finished their scoring just over ten minutes into the second half while Swarup scored his second of the game in the 71st minute to close out the scoring on a drizzly afternoon.

Green Mountain was outshot 20-6 in the game with Nazar Zhukovskyy accounting for three of those shots for GMC.

Two Monks' players combined for the shutout in net with freshman Blake Mullen (Manchester, Conn.) picking up the win with the start in the first 45 minutes. First-year Zack Moody (Steep Falls, Maine) replaced him in the final 45 minutes to finish out the clean sheet.

Nichols made three saves in net for the Eagles in the loss.

The Eagles will host regional opponent Middlebury College Tuesday, September 15th at home at 4:45 p.m. in its next contest, while Saint Joseph's will open up its conference schedule at Emmanuel (Mass.) this Saturday at 1 p.m.



BEYOND THE BOX

The Monks shattered the program single-game records for goals, assists (8) and total points (30) in today's lopsided victory
The team's previous single-game records for goals (7), assists (6) and points (20) occurred in a win over Rivier University on October 25th, 2008
The hat-trick effort by Thomas is just the fourth in program history and first since current Assistant Coach Kyle Shangraw netted a trio against Emmanuel on October 12th, 2013
Thomas, Fusaro, Swarup and O'Toole netted their first collegiate goals in today's win
O'Toole, Moody, Andrew Pereira (Lowell, Mass.), Robbie Small (Bowdoinham, Maine) and James Stevens (Marshfield, Mass.) all made their debuts for Saint Joseph's this afternoon
Mullen made his first NCAA start and picked up the first win of his career without facing a shot in the first half

UP NEXT

Saint Joseph's is 6-2-1 all-time versus Emmanuel – a team the Monks defeated by a 2-0 score in the side's regular-season finale in Standish last fall
Emmanuel has played two games this season, losing to Curry College, 1-0, on September 3rd and topping Lesley University, 3-1, on September 7th

Monks Topple Raiders, 3-0

STANDISH, Maine – Senior Ralph Houanche (Port-au-Prince, Haiti) netted a goal with an assist to help lift Saint Joseph's College (3-3-1, 1-1-1 GNAC) past Rivier University (1-3-0, 0-2-0 GNAC), 2-0, in a GNAC men's soccer contest at Westerlea Way Field on Saturday afternoon.

After a scoreless first half, Houanche put the Monks on top with an unassisted tally at the 56:15 mark and was credited with the assist on a goal by junior Nicholas Borowski (Webster, Mass.) marker just over 13 minutes later.

Freshman Jeremy Caruso (Pembroke, N.H.) connected off a Ryan Guidaboni (Nashua, N.H.) feed in the 72nd minute to put the match well out of reach.

Freshman keepers Blake Mullen (Manchester, Conn.) and Zack Moody (Steep Falls, Maine) combined to make three saves in what was the Monks' third shutout effort of the young season. Mullen, making his second collegiate start, made a pair of saves in 86:04 of play while Moody registered a stop on the only shot he faced in 3:56 between the pipes.

For Rivier, Anthony Capozzi (Windham, N.H.) made five saves in 86:26 of play while Tyler Moore went untested in 3:34 of mop-up duty.

St. Joe's held a 19-6 shots advantage with a 5-3 lead in corner kicks in the victory.

Saint Joseph's returns to action on Tuesday with a 4:00 PM home game versus University of Maine-Farmington. Rivier, losers of three straight, looks to get back on track with a non-conference match at New England College at 6:00 PM on Wednesday.

Newcomers Lead Monks Past Beavers, 3-1

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph's College (4-3-1, 1-1-0 GNAC) topped University of Maine-Farmington (3-3-0, 1-0-0 NAC), 3-1, in a non-conference men's soccer contest at Westerlea Way Field on Tuesday afternoon. Freshman forward Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) scored what proved to be the game winner off a Ralph Houanche (Port-au-Prince, Haiti) pass in the 52nd minute. All three of the Monks' goals were scored by players who are currently in their first year with the SJC program.

Junior midfielder Johnny Thomas (Boston, Mass.) lifted the hosts to an early lead, scoring his fifth goal of the season at the 4:57 mark off a deflection. Maine-Farmington junior midfielder Ibrahim Achekh (Aboudeia, Chad) tapped in a header off an Austin Dooley (Buckfield, Maine) feed nine minutes later, knotting the contest at 1-1.

The eventual game-winner was set up by a well-placed corner kick off the foot of Houanche at the 51:24 mark. Kicking from the right of UMF keeper Matt Wilson (Hamden, Conn.), Houanche launched the ball into the box, eventually finding Mattos who drove a shot into the lower center of the net, making it a 2-1 game with 38:36 remaining.

The Monks tacked on an insurance goal in the 61st minute, as Mattos was fouled in the box setting up a penalty kick for freshman Dalton Gaumer (Riverside, Calif.), who let fly a kick into the right corner for the first goal of his NCAA career. Wilson guessed left and dove in that direction to no avail.

The Beavers had a pair of prime opportunities, both penalty kicks, in the final 15 minutes of play, but SJC senior keeper Scott Benner (Post Falls, Idaho) proved up to the task on both bids. Junior midfielder Henry Ametti (Skowhegan, Maine) was the first to shoot from the dot, but was denied on a diving stop to the right by Benner at the 75:03 mark. Almost exactly nine minutes later, senior Uriah Forest-Bulley (Turner Falls, Mass.) lined up for his chance after a foul in the box, but Benner made another huge save, this time lunging to the left, preserving the 3-1 margin in the process.

Saint Joseph's held meager advantages in both shots (12-10) and corner kicks (4-1) in the victory. Benner made four saves for the Monks while Wilson totaled three stops for the Beavers on the afternoon.

Saint Joseph's travels to University of Maine-Presque Isle for a 2:00 PM non-conference game on Friday. Maine-Farmington hosts conference-rival Maine Maritime Academy on Saturday at 1:00 PM.


BEYOND THE BOX:

With the victory, Saint Joseph's improves to 7-17-4 all-time versus Maine-Farmington and has not lost to the Beavers since 2007, with a 7-0-1 record against them over the last eight years
Today's win marks the second occasion in which the Monks have won consecutive contests under the watch of second-year Head Coach Adrian Dubois
Thomas leads the Monks with five goals through eight games, a total which would have placed him a tie for last season's final leader (Austin Bell, five goals in 19 games)

UP NEXT:

St. Joe's is 13-10-1 in the history of the series with Maine-Presque Isle and defeated the Owls by a 5-0 margin at Westerlea Way Field last fall
The Monks have defeated the Owls in four consecutive meetings with all four wins being of the shutout variety
