MILTON, Mass. – The Curry College men's soccer team held on for a 1-0 victory over Framingham State University on Wednesday night in a non-conference match-up at Walter M. Katz Field.

The Colonels scored the lone goal in the 54th minute when Nico Sabbatini (Cape Elizabeth, Maine) found the back of the net off an assist from Brandon Rinaldi (Watertown, Conn.) Goalkeeper Paul DeMaio (North Andover, Mass.) made the margin stand to record his third clean sheet.

Both goalies came up with huge saves in the second half as DeMaio came up with five while Corey Davidge (Blackstone, Mass.) finished with one in the second half and four for the game.
