Six-Goal Outburst Vaults Polar Bears Over Eagles
BRUNSWICK, Maine - Five different Polar Bears scored as the Bowdoin College men's soccer team blanked Husson on Tuesday afternoon, 6-0. It marks the fifth shutout of the season for the Polar Bears (6-2-0), who are ranked seventh in New England in the latest NSCAA Regional poll. Husson falls to 4-8-1 with their third loss in their last four games.
Bowdoin wasted little time getting going on Tuesday afternoon, as Tim Prior took advantage of a fumbled ball in the box by Husson goaltender Miguel Dominguez and ripped a hard shot that bounced off the post and into the net just 1:03 into the game.
The Polar Bears, who out-shot the Eagles 10-4 in the opening period, were able to find the back of the net again shortly before intermission. Hugh Fleming took control of the ball at the top of the box and ripped a turn-around shot to give the hosts a 2-0 lead at the break.
Bowdoin continued to roll in the second half, as Zach Ostrup played a hand in a pair of pretty goals. Ostrup played a perfectly-placed corner to a diving Sean Bishop on the back post, who headed home Bowdoin's third goal. Minutes later, Ostrup played a long ball into the box where Michael Gale connected on another header that slipped under the crossbar to give the Polar Bears a four-goal advantage. Nick Powell added a pair of tallies with under ten minutes to play to seal the win.
Garrick Sheldon made five saves in net for the Polar Bears while Dominguez (five saves, three goals, 59:32) and Joey Kane (four saves, three goals, 30:28).
