The much anticipated home opener for the Men’s UNB Saint John soccer club ended in a 6 – 0 victory versus the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus Rams Saturday evening, as the wolves collected their second win of the season.
UNB Saint John’s Matt Smith wasted no time in scoring his team’s first goal to give them an early lead after only eight minutes of play.
It was only the beginning for the Seawolves as they eventually ended up scoring four more goals before the end of the second half.
Two goals were provided by striker Alex Allison, one by Jean-Marc Mahoro, and the other by Kyle Watson, who proved his wizardly with a jaw-dropping corner kick that curved its way into the back of the net.
Going into the second half, it was quite obvious the wolves focused more on defending the ball.
MacKenzie Tamblyn put the nail in the coffin by sniping his fourth goal of the season on a penalty kick, to give his team a commanding six goal lead over the Rams.
Throughout the entire game, the UNB Saint John Seawolves maintained the majority of possession allowing DAL AC only two shots on goal, which were both saved by goaltender Bruce Savoie.
Seawolves coach David Vincente is happy with his team’s win, but is already thinking about tomorrow’s matchup against Holland College.
“I was really happy with how the boys played, I think we’ve got the firepower to go after (Holland College) and see what they’re all about defensively, because normally teams don’t have that firepower that we have.”
The varsity men play against the undefeated Holland College Hurricanes this Sunday, September 25, at 2pm at the Canada Games Stadium in Saint John.
