- The Lead: Behind a four-goal performance from freshman Salah Oumorou (West Haven, Conn.), the Albertus Magnus College men's soccer team defeated Anna Maria College, 4-0, on Saturday afternoon in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) clash at Celentano Field.
How It Happened:
Oumorou opened the scoring in the 40th minute of play as he found the back of the net off a clean pass from senior Justyn Broderick (Orange, Conn.) giving the hosts the 1-0 lead heading into halftime.
Albertus Magnus continued to dominate on offense as the Falcons outshot the AMCATS 12-7 in the second half. Oumorou would strike again in the 55th and 56th minute of play to net his third hat trick of the season. Freshman Jonathan Beaucejour (Wallingford, Conn.) would record his first collegiate assist on Oumorou's goal at the 55th minute.
Four minutes later, Broderick would fake out the AMCATS defender and find Oumorou who would score his fourth goal of the game to insure the home win for the Falcons.
Inside the Numbers:
-Albertus Magnus outshot Anna Maria, 21-14, including a 9-3 edge in shots on goal.
-Falcons keeper Joe Russo (North Haven, Conn.) stopped all three shots he faced to preserve the shut out win.
-The AMCATS held the advantage in corner kicks, 6-4.
The AMCATS play their next three games at home, beginning Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. against Suffolk University in a GNAC encounter. Albertus Magnus travels to Emmanuel College on Wednesday in a 7:00 PM GNAC affair.
