BUZZARDS BAY, Mass. -- Freshman Tim McDonald (Holden, Mass.) made six saves to pick up his first collegiate win in goal as Becker took advantage of a second half own goal to post a 2-1 non-league college men’s soccer victory over Massachusetts Maritime Wednesday evening at Clean Harbors Stadium.
Sophomore Ryan Singh (Elmont, N.Y.) gave the visiting Hawks (1-2) an early 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute when he converted freshman Aldo Karkanjozi’s (Worcester, Mass.) direct kick, but the host Buccaneers (1-1) evened matters just 2:54 later when junior Ryan Fischer (Marshfield, Mass.) converted a penalty kick after a foul inside of the box for a 1-1 draw at the break. Becker took the lead for good in the 59th minute of play on an own goal that came off a deflected pass, and McDonald made that stand up with a pair of saves in the final 30 minutes to give the visitors their triumph.
Sophomore Patrick Slaney (Northbridge, Mass.) made four stops in net in the setback for Massachusetts Maritime, as the Buccaneers outshot the Hawks by a 12-9 margin for the contest.
Massachusetts Maritime heads to Cambridge, Mass. on Saturday afternoon to take on Lesley in a non-league outing that begins at 12:30 p.m., while Becker travels to Lyndonville, Vt. to take on Lyndon State in a non-league match that begins at 3:00 p.m.
