Men's Soccer: Depth is Paying Dividends in our Success

by Matt Kalmin

Hey everyone! It's Matt again, here to update everyone on our last week. 

We are back on track to start of the week!  Last Wednesday we suffered a tough loss to Trinity College at their home field.  It was one of those games where everything seemed to go wrong at the worst times.  But, this weekend we went up to Plymouth State University to play our second conference match of the season.  Chris Giustina started off the scoring for us by smashing in a header off of a corner kick.  It was his first goal of his career here at Eastern..  Later in the game Matt Furman crossed the ball into the box and the ball ricocheted off a Plymouth State defender and ended up in their goal.  To finish off the day Nick Demo put home a header off of another corner kick in the second half.  It was also his first goal of his career here at Eastern.  Those two games put a dent in our starting back four by knocking Mike Radlebeck and Aaron Smiles out of our match this Tuesday.  But, because of our deep bench and team work we managed to rout Salem State University at Thomas Nevers field Tuesday.  Mitch Power scored his first goal this past Tuesday against Salem State.  He didn't stop there and decided to put home two more.  Matt Furman and Luke Capezzone also scored for us. 

Looking to the future, we aim to continue our run in the Little East conference with a home game this Saturday against Western Connecticut State University.  We should have everyone back healthy and ready to play by this weekend. 

 Talk to you all soon and hopefully see you at the game this weekend!
