BATES WINS HOME OPENER, 4-0, OVER ST. JOSEPH'S
LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College men's soccer team (1-1) got all the scoring it would need just 39 seconds into the game on a corner pass from junior Josh Myer (Los Angeles, Cal.) to senior Drew Weymouth (Holden, Mass.) as the Bobcats defeated the St. Joseph's College Monks (3-1), 4-0, in their home opener.
The Bobcats added a second goal nearly five minutes later when Weymouth put a ball on the head of sophomore Anthony Silva (Salem, Mass.), who knocked it past St. Joe's starting goalkeeper Nick Wallace (St. Alban's , Maine). The assist was Weymouth's ninth of his career. Bates added another goal early in the second half when Silva assisted the 13th career goal of junior Brian Luoma (Virginia Beach, Va.). Rookie forward Terence O'Connell (Greenwich, Conn.) juked past SJC back-up goal Jeff Yaeger (Westfield, Mass.) for the final goal of the game.
Bates goalies Dan Spector (Framingham, Mass.) and Chris Mansfield (Lincoln, Mass.) made six saves for the shutout. Wallace and Yaeger combined for 12 stops for the Monks.
