Bates men's soccer blanks Trinity 2-0 for best start since 2005

More news about: Bates men's team

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates men's soccer team is off to its best start through 10 matches since 2005 after a 2-0 victory Sunday afternoon over the visiting Trinity College Bantams at Russell Street Field.

Bates (7-2-1, 3-2-1 NESCAC) turned in a dominant performance against the Bantams (1-9, 0-6 NESCAC), tallying 18 shots to Trinity's four on the afternoon. 

"Trinity is a much better team than their record reflects and they gave us fits with their aggressive pressure and quality players on the ball," Bates head coach Tyler Sheikh said. "For us, we got better as the game went on, but I was really proud that we got our two goals playing four different formations in the first half."

In the 33rd minute, sophomore Frederick Hohmann (Bonn, Germany) delivered a beautiful feed from midfield into the box that found the foot of sophomore Alec Szwarcewicz (Newton, Mass.), who beat the keeper for his first collegiate goal. 

The Bobcats didn't waste much time adding to the lead. 

In the 36th minute, first-year Max McKersie (Arlington, Mass.) drove down the near side and crossed the ball into the box. The ball made its way to the foot of sophomore Charlie Cronin (South Portland, Maine) and he fired a shot that got blocked by a Trinity defender. Luckily for the Bobcats, senior Beaufils Kimpolo-Pene (Bronx, N.Y.) one-timed the loose ball into the bottom-right corner of the net for his second goal of the season. 

Junior captain goalkeeper David Goodstein (Bethesda, Md.) recorded his second consecutive shutout, making a pair of saves between the pipes for Bates. The Bobcats forced Trinity keeper Everett Lyons to make seven saves. 

Alex Guglielmo paced Trinity with a pair of shots, one on goal, and Szwarcewicz led Bates with three shots, two on goal. 

The Bobcats recorded four corner kicks and did not surrender a single corner kick to the Bantams. Sunday's match was quite physical, with 25 combined fouls and six yellow cards.

Bates is back in action this Saturday at Wesleyan for a match that gets underway at 2pm. After back-to-back wins this weekend, Bates sits fourth in the NESCAC standings, one point behind third-place Connecticut College.

"We know what happened after a six-point home weekend last season so our guys will continue to fight for every point," said Sheikh.
