Freshman forward Justin Dominique started things off for the Lions in the 12th minute when he connected on a pass from sophomore midfielder Ryan Santos to give the Lions a 1-0 advantage. This was Dominique’s fourth goal of the season and the only goal in the first half.

The second half began with another Lions score, as junior midfielder Kevin Esteves tapped in a pass from freshman defenseman Luke Yates in the 54th minute, marking Esteves’ fourth goal of the season.

This 2-0 lead proved to be enough for the Lions’ defense, as junior goalkeeper Daniel Mecadon recorded eight saves and another shutout in the net.

The men are back in action tonight at Stockton University, where they will play their game that was rescheduled from Oct. 16. On Saturday, Oct. 26, the Lions return home to face Montclair State University in what will be their last home game of the regular season
