Men's Soccer Bested at CCC Foe Gordon, 2-0

WENHAM, Mass. — Gordon played Curry for its Homecoming game Saturday afternoon and came away with a 2-0 victory.

The game started off slowly as Curry attempted the only shot in the first ten minutes of the game. The Fighting Scots (6-4, 2-1 CCC) got on the board in the 15th minute as Ian Burkhart dribbled the ball in the box and put his shot into the upper left corner of the net. Burkhart added another goal in the 20th minute as he received a cross from Tyler Modzeleski and put it in above Curry's goalie Paul DeMaios' outstretched arms. Gordon held the Colonels (6-4-1, 1-2 CCC) to one shot in the remainder of the half to take a 2-0 lead into halftime.

The second half started off as slowly as the first as the teams combined to attempt one shot in the first 25 minutes of the half. The Fighting Scots played a man down for a majority of the half as Ben Gradertreceived a second yellow card in the 66th minute and was ejected from the game. Gordon's defense held as they only allowed two shots after the ejection with Wesley Sprague making a diving save to prevent Curry from scoring in the 81st minute. Eric Miller's shot for the Colonels went wide with 40 seconds left to seal the win for the Fighting Scots.

Gordon next travels to take on Rhode Island College Oct. 3 at 4 p.m. The Colonels host Lesley on Oct. 3 at 6:30 p.m. (Game Recap Courtesy of Gordon Sports Information)
