Box Score

BOSTON, MA - Sophomore forward Cam Blair (Keene, NH) netted the afternoon's only goal to give the Keene State College men's soccer team a 1-0 victory over host University of Massachusetts Boston in a Little East Conference match this afternoon at the Clark Athletic Center Field on the campus of UMass Boston. The Beacons fall to 4-7-1 overall and 1-3-0 in LEC play, while the Owls improve to 8-6-0 and 4-1-0.

Freshman midfielder Aaron Mesham (Old Lyme, CT) sent a cross from outside the 18-yard box to Blair, who trapped the ball, turned and scored on a low shot that found the left side of the back of the net for his second tally of the season at the 37:47 mark of the first half for a 1-0 Keene State lead.

UMass Boston held the Owls scoreless for the remainder of the match, including the last 47 minutes, despite being a man down, but was unable to even the score.

Senior goalie Domenick Persuitte (West Barnstable, MA) stopped six shots on the day for the Beacons, while senior keeper Peter Kersker (Ipswich, MA) made four saves to earn his third shutout of the season for Keene State.

UMass Boston will be in action again on Wednesday, October 21 when it hosts Emerson College at the Clark Athletic Center Field for a 3:30 p.m. match, while the Owls return to action tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. with a home match vs. Western New England College.
