This season for the Assumption College men’s soccer team hasn’t gotten off on the right foot, as the Greyhounds dropped their first four games to start the season, all by the small margin of just one goal.
With a spark in their eyes, the Hounds took on The University of New Haven on Saturday, September 26 at 7 p.m. They marched to their first victory of the season, and improved to 1-6-1.
It was a closely contested match but the Greyhounds dug their cleats into the turf and settled in for a long game.
The Greyhounds had an electrifying first half of play, pouring on the attack with an astonishing twelve shots, six of which were on goal.
“Ball movement created many passing lanes for our midfielders to easily pass through the channels and behind the opponent’s center backs, ” said junior midfielder Sarandon Dias. Dias accounted for two shots, with one on goal.
