Men's Soccer Wins Again in OT, 1-0

GORHAM., ME-Sophomore forward Jordan Sindo (New Bedford, MA/New Bedford HS) scored the game-winning goal in sudden death overtime, to lead the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth men's soccer team to their second consecutive triumph in extra time, a 1-0 victory over St. Joseph's (Maine) on the second and final day of action at the Southern Maine Invitational at Hannaford Field Saturday.

Sindo took a pass at midfield, beat a defender and broke into the box, firing a shot that deflected off a defender into the goal in the 97th minute to give the Corsairs their second win in as many days.
"We had the edge in terms of time of possession, and we had plenty of opportunities to score, but we couldn't finish until overtime," said UMass Dartmouth Assistant Coach Brian Medeiros. "Jordan got an opportunity and put it away. We played very well defensively all weekend, and (senior) Mike Phelan (Carver, MA/Carver HS) did a great job in goal."

Three Corsairs-junior forward Victor Ferreira (St. Michael, Portugal/New Bedford HS), junior midfielder Adam Philbin (Cumberland, RI/Cumberland HS/RIC/CCRI) and freshman forward Alief Solomon (Framingham, MA/Framingham HS) earned All-Tournament honors, with Ferreira, who scored both UMD in Friday's overtime win against the Coast Guard, named Most Valuable Player.

UMD outshot the Monks, 22-10. Phelan made five saves, with Scott Benner of St. Joseph's making seven.
UMass Dartmouth improved to 2-0 with the victory, while St. Joseph's dropped to 1-1 with the defeat. The Corsairs will return to action when they host Daniel Webster next Saturday.
