Men’s Soccer Shuts Out Longwood, 2-0
In the final game of its three-game homestand, the Army West Point Men’s Soccer Team ran past the Longwood Lancers for a 2-0 victory. The Black Knights jumped on the Lancers from the very first whistle, using a steady attack to create several early scoring chances. The front line of Sal Rasizzi, Andrew Guerra, Brandon Bryant and Oscar Pereira helped lead Army into the Lancer zone and create three shots for the Cadets.
On the third chance, Guerra was able to collect the ball off a throw-in and feed Pereira who made a series of moves before finding the bottom left corner of the net for Army's first goal of the match.
Army controlled the tempo for the rest of the half thanks in large part to outstanding defensive efforts from Jack Eaton, D'Anthony Brown and Dylan Mitchiner. The back line held off the Lancer attack for much of the game and gave plebe goalkeeper, Tomas Hut, room to breathe in the backfield. Hut would only need to make one save off a shot in the 58th minute on his way to his first career shutout. Read more.
