Men's Soccer Opens Season With 1-0 Win

Men's Soccer Opens Season With 1-0 Win

QUINCY, Mass.- Lesley University Mens Soccer Team opened up the 2017 campaign with a 1-0 win at Eastern Nazarene College.  The Lynx scored the match's lone goal in the 42nd minute as Anthony Vitta netted his first tally of the fall off of a free kick delivery by Tiago Pacheco.  The Lynx led the shots 7-3 in the first half, which proved enough for the contest. 

The Lynx held an 8-3 advantage in second-half shots and a 5-0 gap in corner kicks earned in the second stanza en route to clinching the 1-0 victory.  The home team finished with six shots while the visitors recorded 15 on the night.  Junior Joao Costa paced the Lions with three shots in the match, including a pair on goal.  Rookie Tim Eddings stopped four shots in his collegiate debut between the posts. James Webb saved both shots he faced in goal for Lesley.

Lesley next travels to Mount Ida College Sunday September 3rd for a non-conference match with a 12pm kick off.
