Men's Soccer Earns Draw at Boston U

Defense is able to turn away late flurry in regulation to earn a point

BOSTON – The Lafayette College men's soccer team earned its second Patriot League draw of the season, playing Boston University to a scoreless tie on Saturday afternoon.

After a very quiet opening 45 minutes between Lafayette (4-4-3, 0-2-2 PL) and Boston (3-6-3, 2-1-1 PL), freshman goalkeeper Alex Sutton was tested twice in the first five minutes of the second half, turning away both tries.

The Leopard defense was able to turn away a flurry of Boston scoring opportunities in the final 10 minutes of regulation as the Terriers had three shots on four corners.

Lafayette was outshot, 18-6 and 6-2 in shots on goal. Sutton tallied six saves total in the shutout and the backline of senior Joe DeStefano, juniors Christian Williams and Diego Gomera-Tavarez, and sophomore Andrew Venezia played all 110 minutes.

Freshman forward Nick Hazel also went the distance, recording 110 minutes on the afternoon.

Sophomore Martin Ssessanga was charged with his second yellow card of the afternoon in the 105th minute and Lafayette was forced to play the rest of the match a man down.

The Maroon and White will take a well-deserved week off and return home to Oaks Stadium on Oct. 13, playing host to archrival Lehigh at noon.
