Nov. 9, 2005

The St. Lawrence men's soccer team beat Medaille College 4-0 in the first round of the NCAA Men's Soccer tournament Wednesday afternoon at Sandy MacAllaster Field. The Saints move to 10-7-2 on the year; the Mavericks finish with a record of 18-2-2.

Playing in the NCAA Tournament for their eighth consecutive season, the Saints made an early statement with a goal at 2:21. Senior Nick Mangee booted a corner into the box where senior co-captain Steve Watson headed it to teammate Sean Charles who was waiting by the left post. Charles drilled it into the top right corner for his first goal of the year.

The Saints kept the pressure up throughout the first half, finishing with 9 shots to Medaille's 3. SLU also held the advantage on corner kicks at 4 to 0. Maverick goalie Craig Yanni kept his team in the game with 3 important saves.

Although Medaille tried to establish momentum to begin the second half, the Saints were too strong offensively taking another 16 shots in the second half. Senior co-captain Jason Koshi tallied his second goal of the year when co-captain Elliot Savtiz shot was saved but the rebound landed on Koshi's right foot. Koshi was then able to push it into the open net to make it 2-0 Saints.

A minute and twenty six seconds later, at 55:56, junior Axel Galeano iced the game with his third goal in two games off of a great touch pass from senior co- captain Gil Schaper to give the Saints a 3-0 lead. With less than seven minutes remaining, Chris Harrison finished the scoring when he took a pass from Chris Lonegan and created beat the keeper on a one-on-one situation for his first goal of the year.

For the day, the Saints out shot the Mavericks 25-6, and held the advantage in corners at 9 to 0. Freshman Emilio Coletta made 4 saves in the net for SLU for his fifth shutout of the year. Yanni had 9 saves for Medaille.

With the win, the Saints will travel to Rochester to take on the Yellowjackets this Saturday at 6:00pm to continue their quest for a National Championship.
