MEDFORD, Mass. – The Tufts University men's soccer team (9-1-1) shutout the Mount St. Vincent Dolphins (5-5-1) in dominating fashion Tuesday night as they scored the most goals in a game since 2000 in a 10-0 victory at Bello Field.
|Jarod Glover totaled three points tonight as he scored a goal and picked up an assist.|
In the 25th minute Zach Lane added to the Jumbos' lead off of an assist from Kevin Halliday. Alex Ratzan made it 3-0 in the 30th minute when he received a pass just past the midfield line. He took off after the ball and brought it all the way into the box before getting a shot off that found the back of the net. He would add a second goal later in the game.
Not long after that, Ratzan was brought down in the box by a Dolphin defender and earned a penalty kick for the Jumbos. Travis Van Brewer stepped up and nailed the shot into the left side of the net as the St. Vincent goalie guessed incorrectly and fell to the right.
The first half would wind down with Tufts in the lead, 7-0. They would add three more in the second half to total 10 goals, the most the team has scored in a game since a season opening 10-0 win over Newbury in 2000.
In total, seven Jumbos would score a goal. Besides those already mentioned, Jackson Najjar and Jarod Glover would net one a piece, and Dexter Eichhorst added two more. Six players tallied an assist: Kevin Halliday (2), Zachary Trevorrow, Jarod Glover, Conor Coleman, Derek Enge (2), and Joseph Braun.
The defense only allowed two shots all game, both wound up in the hands of a Jumbo goalie. Conner Mieth started the game and had one save, while Will Harned subbed on in the second half and picked up one more.
The Dolphins best scoring chance came in the 69th minute when Andrew Gomez sent in a hard shot on goal from the top left corner of the box that Harned corralled.
Tufts held the advantage in shots 18-2, and corner kicks 4-0.
The Jumbos travel to Bates on Saturday and the Dolphins face Sarah Lawrence College Sunday.
