Men’s Soccer goes 3-1 over Four-Game Stand


By Jim Testani ‘15



Coming off of a two game skid, the Le Moyne Dolphins won a close one against New Haven. On Wednesday Oct. 8 New Haven came to town in a classic NE-10 matchup.

Dominating in all aspects of the game, the Dolphins won a 1–0 game that was more of a one-sided affair than the score suggested. It was 20 minutes into the game that Le Moyne netted the game winner with grad student forward Gino Corasaniti scoring his second goal of the season. Sophomore forward Ethan Gunty carried the ball down the right side of the field and fed it to Corasaniti who took the ball to the left side of the field and fired a shot through the goalkeeper’s legs for the score. Le Moyne finished the game with 11 shots on goal and 15 shots total. The Dolphins didn’t just dominate on offense; they kept the New Haven offense at bay on defense as well, holding New Haven to just six shots all game with freshman goalkeeper Ben Beaury registering three more saves. Flying high after a good win, the Dolphins took on #17 ranked Merrimack College in an overtime thriller. Saturday Oct. 11 Merrimack came to Ted Grant Field with high hopes of beating Le Moyne on their home turf.

In a largely defensive game, the ‘Phins won in double overtime on a header coming from senior back Trevor Creedon. The Dolphin’s defense held Merrimack to 12 total shots all game with only two on goal. Both shots on goal however were saved by Beaury who registered his sixth shutout of the season. Beaury is now tied with Matthew Silva (’14) for most shutouts in a season by a freshman for the program’s history. With help from the defense, Beaury kept the ball out of the net and brought the 17th ranked Merrimack into overtime. With nobody finding the mark in the first overtime, the game went into another. At the 107th minute Creedon ended the game with a header coming off of a corner kick by freshman Jacob Borssen. Creedon sent the ball flying into the center of the goal effectively winning the game for the Dolphins 1–0.

On Tuesday, Oct. 14 Le Moyne took on American International College in another tough defensive game. The Dolphins lost a heartbreaker, 1 – 0, after failing to find the goal this game. Firing 12 shots the entire game, the ‘Phins offense just couldn’t find the net to edge out the win. The only goal of the game came in the final seconds of the first half when American International snuck a shot past Beaury for what would be the game winner.   The Dolphin’s best chance to tie up the game came with 1:18 left in the contest, but was easily deflected by the American International goalkeeper. The last of a three game home stand, Felician College came to town on Sunday Oct. 19.

On a cold Sunday afternoon, the Dolphins put on a dominating performance, blowing out Felician 3–0. Outshooting Felician 17–2, the ‘Phins put on an offensive clinic, completely dominating the game. The game’s first goal came 28 minutes into the contest when junior midfielder Anthony Scaravillo got the rebound off of a shot by senior midfielder Alex Lautner. Le Moyne’s offense didn’t let up there, firing five of their 17 shots in the first half. 65 minutes into the game the Dolphin’s second goal came from graduate student forward Fabien Egger. Egger was fed the ball off of a cross from junior midfielder Mark Gentile who then took the ball down the left sideline then fired a shot that cruised past the Felician goalkeeper to make the game 2–0.

It wasn’t all offense for the Dolphins, the defense kept the ball away from their home net for the majority of the game, allowing only two total shots. The final score of the game came in the form of a penalty shot. The foul was committed on senior midfielder Jamie Carolissen who was taking the ball up field towards the goal. The shot was taken by senior midfielder Taylor Spear, his first goal of the season, making the game 3–0 and effectively putting the game away for the Dolphins. With this win the ‘Phins improve to 9-4 on the season and 6-4 in the NE-10. The Dolphins next game comes Wednesday Oct. 22 when they travel to Massachusetts to take on Assumption College.
