Men’s Soccer Wins Final Home Game of the Season


By Jim Testani ‘15


On Tuesday, Oct. 28 senior Zach MacNabb and grad student Fabien Egger led their team to a 4–0 victory over rival Saint Rose in the final home game of their careers as Dolphins. On their senior day, the eight seniors and grad students that would play their final game on Ted Grant Field put on a performance for the ages, both dominating Saint Rose on offense and shutting them down on defense. Allowing zero shots on goal and giving up only two shots total, the Dolphin’s defense was the best that it has looked all season against their rivals.

The first score of the game came 18 minutes into the contest when MacNabb was taken down in the penalty box, earning himself a penalty kick. MacNabb fired the ball past the goalkeeper into the left side of the net earning the only goal that the Dolphins would need to win the game. Five minutes into the second half, MacNabb was fouled again, earning himself a second penalty kick. MacNabb again buried the ball inside the net making the score 2 – 0. The Dolphins kept pouring on the offense in the second half with Egger scoring both of his goals within four minutes of each other. At the 65th minute, Egger scored on a header after the Saint Rose goalkeeper deflected the ball away from graduate student forward Gino Corasaniti. Just under four minutes later, the same two found themselves in the same situation when the Saint Rose goalkeeper turned away a shot by Corasaniti. Egger was right there to pick up the ball and slot it into the net for his seventh goal of the season making the match 4-0.

After riding high over their victory over Saint Rose, Le Moyne traveled to Massachusetts to take on Stonehill College. In a rough loss, the ‘Phins squad put up two goals against a tough Stonehill team. Le Moyne jumped out to an early lead just 13 minutes into the contest after Egger chased down a loose ball and chipped the ball over the goalkeeper for the first score of the game. 18 minutes later, Le Moyne doubled its lead when it was Egger again for the score. This time he was fed the ball off a cross by senior midfielder Alex Lautner. Lautner crossed the ball into the box where Egger would tap the ball into the net for his team leading 9th goal of the season, making the game 2–0.

10:30 into the second half, the Dolphins had a chance to extend their lead to three when senior back Trevor Creedon was awarded a penalty kick; but the Stonehill goalkeeper was able to deflect the kick and keep the Dolphin’s lead to two. Allowing ten shots in the second half, the Dolphin’s defense was not able to stop the Stonehill offensive charge. Scoring two goals in seven minutes Stonehill tied up the game with 25 minutes left in the contest. Freshman goalkeeper Ben Beaury had four saves in the second half of play after Stonehill fired ten shots in the half and only allowing Le Moyne seven. The Stonehill offense proved to be too much  for the Dolphin defense when they netted the game winner in the 78th minute making the final score 3-2.

The Dolphins fell to 12–5 on the regular season and  8-5 in the NE-10. Their conferencerecord was enough to earn them the six seed in the NE-10 tournament and a game on Tuesday Nov. 4 in Garden City, NY against third seed Adelphi University.
