Men’s Soccer stays perfect with back to back shut-outs to start the season


By: Jim Testani ‘15

Last Thursday, Le Moyne cruised to a 6-0 non-conference victory over Nyack College to start off the 2014 season. Freshman goalkeeper Ben Beaury started his first game with a shutout, all thanks in part to the Dolphin’s defense which only allowed five total shots the entire game. Beaury’s only real test during the game came after a Nyack shot at the 31st minute which the freshman easily saved.

It took the Le Moyne offense 41 minutes to finally get going with a goal by Gino Corasaniti, his first goal as a Dolphin. Once the Dolphins finally clicked they didn’t let up in the second half. Scoring right out of the gate was the freshman from Sweden, Jacob Borssen, who scored courtesy of an assist by senior midfielder Jamie Carolissen. Borssen fired a shot right past the opposing goalkeeper for the quick score making it 2-0 early in the second half. With two more quick goals in the 51st and 57th minutes by seniors Zach MacNabb and Keleenna Onyeaka, the Dolphins began to run away with the game.

It wasn’t just the offense that propelled Le Moyne into victory, the ‘Phins energy and swarming defense kept Nyack away from the goal and the ball for most of the game. The Dolphin squad played with an energy and passion that couldn’t be matched by a flat Nyack team. It was in the 72nd minute that Borssen recorded his second goal of the game with an assist by freshman midfielder Adam Resetarits. Shortly after, in the 75th it was Resetarits who earned his second goal of the game with a goal from the top of the penalty box, effectively wrapping up the victory for the Dolphins.

With a solid mix of new and old faces this year’s Le Moyne squad played with an energy that carried over to their second game of the season against Lock Haven on Saturday, Sept 6. On a rainy Saturday, the Bald Eagles came to town in what proved to be a defensive struggle. With Le Moyne only giving up ten shots all game and Lock Haven giving up seven, goals were a rare commodity during this game. The game’s only goal came 26 minutes into the contest and was scored by Le Moyne’s Borssen, his third goal on the season. Junior back Nick Rauscher fed the ball to Borssen who sent a missile into the upper left corner of the goal giving the Dolphins the lead.

Shortly after it appeared that Lock Haven had sent a ball past Beaury and into the net, effectively tying the score, but an offsides penalty was immediately called, thus negating the goal. This proved to be Lock Haven’s best chance to score until the final minute of the game when they fired a shot on goal which was easily deflected by Beaury to secure the Dolphin victory. The freshman goalkeeper recorded his second straight shutout of the season to help secure back to back victories for the Dolphins.

The Le Moyne men’s squad will continue their quest to stay perfect in their next game when they host Daemen College on Wednesday, Sept 10.
