No. 2 Franklin Pierce beats SCSU
Roundup: No. 3 Simon Fraser adds another win to season
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Senior midfielder Diego Tabares scored a pair of goals to lift No. 2 Franklin Pierce to a satisfying 3-1 road win against Southern Connecticut State. The win ran the Ravens’ record to 10-0 overall and 6-0 in the Northeast-10, while SCSU dipped to 4-5 and 3-3 in league play.
Tabares has been on a hot streak, offensively, over the past three matches as he has scored four goals and assisted on another for nine points. He isn’t the only Raven to be on an offensive roll over the past three matches as classmate Victor Goncalves has put his name on the score sheet frequently with two goals and two assists for six points during that span. Both players were at it again Wednesday night in helping to guide the Ravens to victory.
Goncalves got the scoring started in the 21st minute when he dribbled deep into the box and slipped a shot low side underneath the Owls goalkeeper for a 1-0 Franklin Pierce lead. It was Goncalves’ fifth goal of the season, which also gave him 13 points for the campaign.
