Beavers Fall to Saint Joe's 3-1 Behind a Pair of Missed PK's

STANDISH, Maine – A pair of missed penalty kicks turned out to be the difference maker for the University of Maine at Farmington (3-3-0, 1-0-0) men's soccer team in Tuesday's 3-1 non-conference loss at Saint Joseph's College (5-3-1, 1-0-0).

Saint Joseph's College scored the first goal of the contest when Johnny Thomas found the back of the net just shy of the 5th minute. With a scramble in front of the net, Thomas was able to find a hole in the defense for the score.

The Beavers kept clawing away and evened the game at 14:00 in the first half. UMF marched down the field and Ibrahim Achekh (Aboudeia, Chad/Lewiston) booted home the tying score with the assist from Austin Dooley (Buckfield, Maine/Buckfield).

After the Monks grabbed a pair of goals in the second half, the Beavers were presented with two penalty kicks to tie the game. Henry Ametti (Skowhegan, Maine/Skowhegan) lined up with fifteen minutes remaining in the game, but his kick was saved by Saint Joe's keeper Scott Brenner. Approaching the five minute mark, Uriah Forest-Bulley (Turner Falls, Mass./Turner Falls) set up to draw UMF closer, but his attempt resulted with the same outcome, a save by Brenner.

Matt Wilson (Hamden, Conn./Hamden) saved three shots between the pipes for UMF.

UMaine-Farmington returns to the heart of its conference schedule on Saturday with Maine Maritime coming to town at 1:00 p.m.

Mattos Brace Helps Push Monks Past Owls, 4-1

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine – Freshman forward Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) scored a pair of goals and sophomore forward Austin Bell (Gorham, Maine) chipped in with a pair of assists to help Saint Joseph's College (5-3-0) defeat University of Maine-Presque Isle (1-8-0) on Friday afternoon.

Mattos kicked off the game scoring in the eighth minute, with Bell claiming the assist, but the host-Owls responded just over eight minutes later when Sean Borbosa scored off a Derek Healy feed. Freshman midfielder Jeremy Caruso (Pembroke, N.H.) netted the eventual game-winner at the 39:07 mark and Bell was credited with an assist on the clincher.

With 52 seconds left in the first half, Mattos added his second marker of the day off a Caruso dish and first-year forward Tyler St. Pierre (Gray, Maine) potted his first collegiate goal, an unassisted tally, at the 52:36 mark, capping the scoring ledger with the Monks firmly in the lead, 4-1.

In goal, freshman Zack Moody (Steep Falls, Maine) collected his first NCAA win after making three saves in his first career start. UMPI keepers Caleb Bragg-Grady (73:40) and Matthew Manter (16:20) shared time in goal and combined to make 13 saves in the losing effort.

Overall, Saint Joseph's held decided advantages in both shots (28-14) and corner kicks (12-2) in the triumph.

Saint Joseph's returns to action tomorrow with a 12:00 PM conference contest at home versus Anna Maria College.


BEYOND THE BOX:

With the victory, Saint Joseph's improves to 14-10-1 all-time versus Presque Isle and has now defeated the Owls in five-consecutive meetings
Today's triumph is the Monks' third-straight win and counts as the first time the SJC men's side has won three in a row since the 2013 team won seven straight
St. Pierre is the 13th different SJC player to net a goal this fall – only one St. Joe's team (2008, 15) has had more players find the back of the net in the same season
Eight different players scored for the Royal Blue last year
With the win over Presque-Isle, the Monks match last season's win total
UP NEXT:

Saint Joseph's is 4-0 in the history of the matchup with Anna Maria College and defeated the AMCATS, 1-0, in Paxton, Massachusetts last fall
Anna Maria enters tomorrow's contest with an 0-5-1 record, including an 0-2 mark in GNAC play
The AMCATS fell to Mass.-Maritime, 2-0, in their last game, which was played on their home turf on Wednesday

Monks Blank Falcons, 3-0

STANDISH, Maine – Freshman forward Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) scored twice to help launch Saint Joseph's College (6-3-1, 2-1-0 GNAC) past Albertus Magnus College (6-4-0, 2-2-0 GNAC), 3-0, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) men's soccer contest at Westerlea Way Field on Saturday afternoon. With the win, the Monks extend their win streak to four games.

THE LEAD

Mattos netted his sixth goal of the season at the 15:18 mark of the first half, as the rookie standout scored off an Austin Bell (Gorham, Maine) feed to put the hosts up 1-0. With an open lane, Bell delivered a through pass into the box that appeared to be cut off by Falcons sophomore Griffin Volta (Orange, Conn.), but the ball squirted free and Mattos was in position to tap it into a wide open goal.

As it played out, the Mattos marker – his second game-clincher of the season - proved to be all the offense Saint Joseph's would require. The Monks tacked on a pair of goals in the second stanza, with junior Sean Baker (Medfield, Mass.) and Mattos scoring off Johnny Thomas (Boston, Mass.) and Kartikeya Swarup (Delhi, India) passes in the 53rd and 75th minutes, respectively.

NOTABLES

SJC: Mattos leads the Monks with seven goals and 15 total points through 10 matches – he is the first freshman to net at least seven tallies since Jack LaFreniere '13 totaled the same amount over 18 matches in 2009
SJC: Bell, who ranked fourth in NCAA DIII Men's Soccer in assists per game (0.88) as of September 27th, now has eight helpers this fall – the third-highest single-season total in team history (10, Paul Robins, 2008) is the record
AMC: Junior forward Alexis Garcia-Romero (West Haven, Conn.) led the Falcons with five shots in the loss and clanged a shot off the crossbar in the 17th minute
THE KEEPERS

Saint Joseph's senior goalkeeper Scott Benner (Post Falls, Idaho) stopped all four shots he faced, including a terrific save on a Garcia-Romero bid in the 37th minute, to notch his second shutout of the year and 12th of his collegiate career.

Volta made a trio of saves for Albertus.

TEAM TOTALS

Both teams recorded 13 shots in the conference contest while the Monks owned a 6-1 corner kicks advantage on the afternoon. Fouls were also fairly even, with the Falcons being called for 13 infractions opposed to the Monks' 11.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING

With the victory, Saint Joseph's improves to 4-7-0 all-time against Albertus Magnus College, a team that had defeated the Monks by identical 1-0 scores in each of the last two meetings entering today's contest. St. Joe's has now posted a pair of shutouts versus the Falcons, with the last goose-egg effort coming during the 2009 campaign.

NEXT!

Saint Joseph's travels to Boston next Saturday for a 4:00 PM match versus GNAC-rival Suffolk University (0-9-1, 0-3-1 GNAC). Albertus Magnus hosts Coast Guard in a non-conference game at 3:30 PM on Tuesday.

Monks Defeat Rams in OT, 1-0

EAST BOSTON, Mass. – Junior Sean Baker (Medfield, Mass.) scored in the 97th minute to propel Saint Joseph's College (7-3-1, 3-1-0 GNAC) past Suffolk University (0-11-1, 0-4-1 GNAC), 1-0, in a GNAC men's soccer contest on Saturday afternoon.

The Monks maintained offensive control for the majority of the contest as they outshot Suffolk by a 25-4 margin in registering their fifth-consecutive victory. For the Rams, the overtime loss was the team's second extra play setback this week.

Suffolk squandered a golden opportunity to come away with their first victory of the season just four minutes into overtime as freshman Jordan Casey (East Hampton, Conn.) found a wide-open Hamada Hazzoum (Wareham, Mass.) in front of the Monks' goal. Hazzoum launched a shot that sailed over the goalpost to keep the game going.

Sophomore Austin Bell (Gorham, Maine) led the Monks offensively as he posted five shots in the game. Freshman keeper Blake Mullen (Manchester, Conn.) was untested in posting the first shutout of his NCAA career.

Senior Nicholas Chamma (Rio de Janero, Brazil) was solid in goal for Suffolk as he made 11 saves in the losing effort.

Both teams will be back in action facing conference foes on the road this upcoming holiday Monday. The Monks will travel to Mount Ida College for a 1:00 PM kick-off while the Rams play at Johnson & Wales University at 1:00 PM.

Monks Buck Mustangs, 2-0

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph's College (8-3-1, 4-1-0 GNAC) blanked Mount Ida College (8-4-1, 4-1-1 GNAC), 2-0, in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) men's soccer action at Westerlea Way Field on Monday afternoon.

THE LEAD
The Monks handed the Mustangs their first conference loss of the season with a pair of first half goals, as freshman Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) scored off a Johnny Thomas (Boston, Mass.) pass in the 23rd minute and junior Sean Baker (Medway, Mass.) potted an insurance goal with 32 seconds left in the opening stanza.

St. Joe's fought an uphill battle for the better part of the second half, as Thomas was slapped with a red card in the 54th minute, which meant the hosts would be forced to play a man down for the remainder of the game. The Monks' defense rose to the occasion and allowed just two shots – both off target – over the final 36 minutes.

Perhaps the play of the game was recorded at the 58:02 mark, when a foul in the SJC box resulted in a penalty kick attempt for Mustangs' freshman forward Jordain Williams (Colchester, Vt.), but first-year keeper Blake Mullen (Manchester, Conn.) dove to his right to make the save and eliminate the visitors' chance to gain momentum.

GOAL HISTORY
1. 22:16 SJMMS15 Brett Mattos Johnny Thomas

St. Joe's got on the board in the 23rd minute, when Thomas found a seam up the middle and hit Mattos with a bounding through ball. Mattos collected the feed with his chest down and played the ball to his foot, just as Mount Ida sophomore keeper Riley Ford (Guilderland, N.Y.) came out to challenge, before tucking a shot into the bottom right corner of the goal.

2. 44:28 SJMMS15 Sean Baker (unassisted)
The Monks doubled their advantage just before intermission, as Baker collected a rebound off a Nicholas Borowski (Webster, Mass.) shot and tapped the ball into the heart of the net. Senior Ralph Houanche (Port-au-Prince, Haiti) set up the score with a well-placed free kick from about 35 yards out near the right sideline.

NOTABLE
The Monks have now won six straight, the longest win streak since the 2013 team posted a seven-gamer
Saint Joseph's has not allowed a goal since September 25th when the Royal Blue topped Maine-Presque Isle, 4-1 – a shutout span of over 351 minutes
The Mustangs entered today's contest having won seven of the last eight matches by a combined 26-8 score
THE KEEPERS
For the Monks, Mullen recorded three saves to post the second shutout of his collegiate career.

Ford and sophomore William Planey (Dallas, Texas) split time in goal for the Mustangs, with the former posting four saves in in the first half and the former registering one stop in the second stanza.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING
With today's triumph, Saint Joseph's improves to 5-4-0 all-time against Mount Ida College, a team that has defeated the Monks in each of the past two seasons. This afternoon's shutout effort is the Monks' third versus the Mustangs and first since a 2-0 win on October 17th, 2009.

NEXT!
Saint Joseph's returns to action on Thursday when the Monks play host to Anna Maria College (2-8-1, 1-4-0 GNAC) in a 7:45 PM start at Deering Memorial Stadium in Portland. The game was originally scheduled for September 26th but was rescheduled due to travel issues.

Mount Ida is off until next Saturday when the Mustangs travel to Emmanuel College (5-8-0, 4-2-0 GNAC) for a 3:00 PM kick-off.

Saint Joseph’s Topples Anna Maria, 4-0

PORTLAND, Maine – Saint Joseph's College (9-3-1, 5-1 GNAC) blanked Anna Maria College (2-9-1, 1-5-0 GNAC), 4-0, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) men's soccer match at Deering Memorial Stadium on Thursday night.

THE LEAD

A pair of freshmen produced all of the Monks' offense in the one-sided triumph, as rookie forward Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) netted his ninth and 10th tallies of the season in the opening half and first-year forward Ryan Guidaboni (Nashua, N.H.) scored the first two goals of his collegiate career in the second stanza to account for the 4-0 final.

GOAL HISTORY

1. 3:28 Brett Mattos (unassisted)

The Monks struck early, as senior Ralph Houanche (Port-au-Prince, Haiti) served a corner kick into the box, where junior Nicholas Borowski (Webster, Mass.) steered a pair of shots on frame before Mattos collected the rebound and slipped the ball into the back of the net.

2. 16:57 Brett Mattos (Ralph Houanche)

Saint Joseph's doubled the cushion just over 13 minutes later on a similar play, as Houanche delivered a corner kick in front of the net, where Mattos settled the ball and buried a shot into the left panel of the goal.

3. 63:40 Ryan Guidaboni (Dalton Gaumer)

A pair of first-year contributors connected for the third SJC goal, as freshman Dalton Gaumer (Riverside, Calif.) threaded the needle with a through ball, sending Guidaboni on a breakaway and the rookie striker beat Anna Maria senior keeper Elliot Kuzma (East Haven, Conn.) with a shot to the left side.

4. 70:53 Ryan Guidaboni (unassisted)

Guidaboni struck again barely seven minutes later, as the freshman notched his second goal of the night after being sprung free on a Joe Fusaro (Hawthorne, N.J.) through ball. He finished the play with a kick to the bottom left corner.

NOTABLE

Tonight's victory is the Monks' seventh-consecutive triumph and ties the program record for longest win streak. The 2013 team also won seven straight.

THE KEEPERS

Freshmen Blake Mullen (Manchester, Conn.) and Zack Moody (Steep Falls, Maine) split time in goal for the Monks, with the former making two stops in 72:32 and the latter posting two saves in 17:28 of work.

For the AMCATS, Kuzma made four saves in the losing effort.

TEAM STATS

The Monks held advantages in shots (15-6) while the AMCATS owned a 4-3 edge in corner kicks on the evening. Anna Maria was flagged for 12 fouls and Saint Joseph's was slapped with 10 infractions in the GNAC match.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING

Saint Joseph's is now 5-0 in the history of the series with Anna Maria College. Four of the five triumphs have been of the shutout variety.

NEXT!

Saint Joseph's faces a tough test on Saturday when the Monks travel to Providence to face reigning GNAC Champion Johnson & Wales University (10-4-0, 5-1-0 GNAC) in a 1:30 PM start.

Anna Maria also travels for a conference contest on Saturday, as the AMCATS play at Lasell College at 2:30 PM.

Late Rally Falls Short, Monks Fall to Wildcats, 3-2

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Saint Joseph's College (9-4-1, 5-2-0 GNAC) fell to reigning conference champion Johnson & Wales University (11-4-0, 6-1-0 GNAC), 3-2, in a GNAC men's soccer match on Saturday afternoon. The loss brings the Monks' seven-game winning streak to a close.

THE LEAD

Saint Joseph's fell victim to a pair of own goals in the first half, as Johnson & Wales took advantage of some miscommunication on the Monks' defensive end to stake a 2-0 lead heading into intermission. Freshman Rory Twomey (South Windsor, Conn.) cut the Monks' lead in half with his third goal of the season at the 53:29 mark, but the Wildcats resumed the two-goal cushion just over a minute later. Freshman forward Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) made it a 3-2 game when he potted his 11th marker of the year in the 65th minute, but JWU withstood a furious closing-minutes rally by the Monks to claim the conference win.

BEYOND THE BOX:

The Monks were excruciatingly close to tying the match on several occasions in the closing minutes.

The series of close calls began when sophomore Austin Bell (Gorham, Maine) appeared to have netted the tying tally in the 86th minute, but the score was negated on a questionable offside call. Three minutes later, St. Joe's was awarded a corner kick, with the play resulting in a shot by junior midfielder Johnny Thomas (Boston, Mass.), but his attempt to the top right corner was headed out of the net by a JWU defender. Lastly, freshman Mitchell Cyr (Rochester, N.H.) clanged a shot off the crossbar near the 89-minute mark.

GOAL HISTORY

1. 6:33 JWUMS Tucker MacPherson (unassisted) own goal

MacPherson earned credit for the game's first goal after a clearing attempt by Cyr caromed off the back of junior Sean Baker (Medway, Mass.) and into the SJC goal.

2. 40:10 JWUMS Chris Schmid (unassisted) own goal

Schmid made it a 2-0 game when his crossing pass attempt ricocheted off Baker into the back of the net.

3. 53:29 SJMMS15 Rory Twomey (Brett Mattos)

The Monks finally got on the board with the help of Mattos, who won a 50-50 ball and needled it through traffic to Twomey, who one-timed a kick from the corner of the six to the back post.

4. 54:50 JWUMS Byron Arboleda (Doug Kase)

Arboleda scored his sixth of the season on a header after Kase launched a ball into the box.

5. 64:51 SJMMS15 Brett Mattos (Dalton Gaumer)

Freshman defender Dalton Gaumer (Riverside, Calif.) set up a beautiful goal by Mattos, as the first-year standout launched a kick from near midfield to the top of the box, where Mattos jumped over a defender and flicked a header into the left corner.

THE KEEPERS

SJC freshman netminder Blake Mullen (Manchester, Conn.) made three saves in the loss while JWU keeper Nick Tolman recorded one stop for the hosts.

TEAM STATS

Johnson & Wales owned a 12-7 lead in shots and a 7-6 edge in corner kicks on the afternoon. JWU was slapped with seven fouls while SJC committed six infractions in the conference contest.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING

With the setback, Saint Joseph's falls to 7-7 all-time against Johnson & Wales University, a team that has now defeated the Monks in five-consecutive meetings dating back to the 2012 season.

NEXT!

Saint Joseph's will travel to Lyndon State College tomorrow for a 2:00 PM non-conference contest.

Saint Joseph’s Falls Short at Lasell, 2-0

NEWTON, Mass. – Lasell men's soccer senior Conor Fitzgerald (Marshfield, Mass.) scored two second-half goals to stun the Monks of Saint Joseph's (Maine) 2-0 in a crucial Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) matchup on Wednesday afternoon at Taylor Field. The Lasers improve to 3-10 overall and 3-5 in the GNAC, while the Monks drop to 10-5-1 this season and 5-3 in conference play.

After both teams played to a scoreless first half, the Lasers applied immediate pressure on the Monks' defensive line. Senior Nick Liquori (Westfield, Mass.) sprinted up the right flank and took a touch inside, where he found Fitzgerald on the pass. Fitzgerald then took a one-time shot to the lower left corner of the net to put the home team up 1-0 in the 54th minute.

Liquori continued to have an offensive presence in St. Joe's defensive end, as he wound up for a long shot that was stopped by Monks' freshman keeper Blake Mullen (Manchester, Conn.). The Lasers would strike again in the 61st minute, as Fitzgerald fended off a Monks' defender and volleyed goal number two into the left netting for the 2-0 bump.

Immediately following the goal, the Monks' midfield pressed forward and sent a promising ball into the box. Freshman Jesse Ramirez (Dumont, N.J.) got the end of it and fired off a shot that was stopped by a sprawling senior keeper Miguel Colmenares (Caracas,

Venezuela). Colmenares stood tall on his line in the 84th minute, as the Monks drew a foul in the Lasers' defensive territory. Freshman Mitchell Cyr (Rochester, N.H.) released a shot on the play, however, Colmenares secured the 2-0 victory for the Lasers with a diving save.

The shot count for both teams was locked even at 10 apiece, while Saint Joseph's held a slim 7-4 advantage in corner kicks.

Colmenares earns his third shutout of the season with five saves in the game, and improves his record to 3-10. Mullen drops to 5-3 this season, and recorded five saves in the effort for the Monks.

Both teams will resume the pitch on Saturday, October 24 for a critical conference matchup. The Lasers will head to crosstown rival Mount Ida College for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff, while the Monks welcome Norwich University at 12:00 p.m.

First Half Outbreak Propels Monks Past Cadets, 3-1

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph's College (11-5-1, 6-3-0 GNAC) defeated Norwich University (10-6-1, 6-3-0 GNAC), 3-1, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) men's soccer contest at Westerlea Way Field on Saturday afternoon.

THE LEAD

Looking to solidify their position in the GNAC standings, the Monks came out firing with three goals while outshooting the Cadets by a 14-2 margin in the first half. In the second stanza, Norwich countered with a stronger attack and made it a 3-1 game midway through the latter frame, but would get no closer as the SJC defense stood tall for the remainder of play.

Junior Nicholas Borowski (Webster, Mass.), sophomore Austin Bell (Gorham, Maine) and junior Sean Baker (Medfield, Mass.) scored a goal apiece in the opening frame for the Monks while junior forward Alex Brigante (Litchfield, N.H.) netted the lone marker for the Cadets.

Today's contest wraps up the conference portion of the 2015 schedule for both programs as the GNAC Tournament begins with a quarterfinal round next Sunday. Both teams are in line to host in the first round and the conference office will likely release a complete tournament schedule later this evening.

GOAL HISTORY

1. 26:58 SJMMS15 Nicholas Borowski Jesse Ramirez

Saint Joseph's had plenty of scoring chances in the early going and finally hit pay dirt when Borowski, roaming in the middle of the box, took a pass from freshman Jesse Ramirez (Dumont, N.J.) and slipped a grounder between Norwich keeper freshman goalie Stefan Skoff (San Jose, Calif.) and the right post.

2. 32:41 SJMMS15 Austin Bell Dalton Gaumer

Bell doubled the Monks' cushion less than six minutes later when the second-year standout received a well-placed lead pass from freshman defender Dalton Gaumer (Riverside, Calif.) and managed to take two shots, the first being stopped by Skoff and the second landing in the wide-open goal.

3. 42:40 SJMMS15 Sean Baker Mitchell Cyr

The Monks' third tally of the afternoon was of the highlight-reel variety. Freshman defender Mitchell Cyr (Rochester, N.H.) took a corner kick from the right and placed a perfect pass to Baker, who came streaking around the corner in the box towards the right post and one-timed a header into the top right corner.

4. 66:00 NOR Alec Brigante (unassisted)

The Cadets' goal came during a scrum in close proximity to the SJC goalmouth, as Benner made a save on an attempt by sophomore Chase Hainey (Fryeburg, Maine), but was unable to control the rebound, as the ball was collected – in traffic – by Brigante, who tapped the sphere into an empty goal.

THE KEEPERS

For the Monks, Benner made a pair of saves to pick up his fifth victory of the season and 26th of his career – a total that puts him in a tie with former SJC standout (and current assistant coach) Will Pike '10.

The Cadets split the match in net, as Skoff made five stops in the first half and senior Eddie Ramirez (Portland, Ore.) tallied three saves in a scoreless second stanza.

SENIOR MOMENT

Prior to the start of today's GNAC match, the SJC men's soccer program held a brief Senior Day Ceremony in honor of the team's three seniors: Benner, Nate Fox (South Portland, Maine) and Ralph Houanche (Port-au-Prince, Haiti). The men's soccer Class of 2016 has helped the Monks post a 36-35-4 (.507) overall record with a 21-15-1 (.583) mark in GNAC play over the past four seasons.

TEAM STATS

Saint Joseph's held advantages in shots (20-9) and corner kicks (7-2) in the victory. Norwich committed seven fouls while the Monks were hit with six infractions on the afternoon.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING

With the victory, Saint Joseph's improves to 7-4-1 all-time versus Norwich University and avenges a setback by the same score at the hands of the Cadets last fall.

NEXT!

Saint Joseph's will cap the regular-season schedule on Tuesday with a home contest versus non-conference foe New England College. Kick-off is slated for 3:00 PM.

Norwich completes the 2015 docket with a non-conference contest in a 3:30 PM start at Pine Manor College on Monday.
