Men's Soccer Edges Westfield State, 1-0, In Double OT

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Sept. 4, 2004 – Springfield College sophomore forward Matt Aucoin (Canton, Mass.) scored the match’s only goal :20 into the second overtime to propel the Pride past Westfield State, 1-0, in the season opener for both teams on Brock Affleck Field.

Aucoin’s decisive tally came off a feed from sophomore midfielder Matt Sullivan (Springfield, Mass.). This is the second consecutive season that SC, which started five freshmen this afternoon, defeated the Owls in double overtime in the season opener. In 2003, the Pride captured a 2-1 victory in Westfield.

The Owls nearly ended the match in the 83rd minute on a scoring chance by sophomore forward Dave Nalewanksi, but his shot hit the post.

SC keepers David Minkoff (Oceanside, N.Y.), a junior, and B.J Sturdivant (Bear, Del.), a freshman, faced 11 shots in the shutout. Sturdivant, who made two saves in 56 minutes, was credited with the victory.
