LAST TIME OUT
A Sunjoon Tenorio marker within the first 17 minutes proved to be the difference as the Suffolk men's soccer team held out for a narrow 1-0 victory over Mitchell Monday afternoon at James A. Sartori Stadium at East Boston Memorial Park.
After winning two games on the bounce, Suffolk sits at 5-6-1 on the season and 3-4-0 in GNAC action.
Sunjoon Tenorio has been the player to take charge, with nine of the Rams' 19 goals this season, with five of those goals leading to a Suffolk win. He has also added two assists to the 18-goal offense for a team-high 18 points. Simon Velez Angel is an attacking threat as well with three goals and one set-up for seven points, good for second on the squad. Emilio Teneacio leads all Rams in assists, meanwhile, with three to add to his two goals for seven points in his debut campaign.
Kyle Rosa posted his first career cleansheet last time out, improving his record to 2-1-0 overall. The freshman has posted a.667 save percentage and a 1.93 GAA. Steven Lopez has also been in the mix in net, with the senior making five appearances, three starts, in which he assembled a 2.77 GAA and a .704 save percentage.
BLUE JAYS BREAKDOWN
Saint Joseph has fallen in back-to-back battles – a 3-0 setback at Saint Joseph's (Maine) and a 2-1 defeat at Johnson & Wales – to move to 8-5 on the year and 4-3 against conference competition.
The Blue Jays powerful 40-goal offense is propelled by DeAnte Anderson's 11. The forward has eclipsed the 20-point marker with his team-leading goals going with three handouts. He is one of four USJ student-athletes with double figure points with the likes of Margim Kutlovci (8g, 1a), Hayden Burbank (5g, 4a) and Daniel Castro (4g, 4a) also consistent contributors offensively.
Joseph Boland and John Griffin have split time in net. The former has put together a stat line of 0.73 GAA and .692 save percentage over seven games played and six starts, while the latter boasts a .717 save percentage and 1.73 GAA in nine appearances with seven nods.
