BANGOR, ME – Today's men's soccer match-up between Husson University and Castleton State ended with a 3-0 Castleton victory.
The game started off with Husson goalie Mason Smith (SO, Houma, LA) making a ridiculous diving save that kept Castleton off of the scoreboard, but only for a few minutes.
In the 18th minute, Castleton's Trevor Kotrady (SO, North Clarendon, VT) received a pass from Josh Costa (SR, Sutton, MA) that allowed him a 1-on-1 opportunity with goalie Smith. Kotrady scored, but was immediately yellow carded for taunting Smith.
In the 26th minute, Costa was on the scoring end of things when he received a cross from Nick Johnas (JR, Niskayuna, NY) and headed the ball past Smith. Castleton scored again on a header in the 60th minute, this time Jacob Ferry (JR, Warwick, RI) crossing the ball to Ian Hunter (SO, Ellington, CT).
Castleton State dominated the shot count 26-6, and also won the corner kick count 6-4.
“Castleton was just the better team,” said Husson head coach Jeff Gettler. “They out-played us in most phases of the game. We tried hard and put in a good effort. We can only hope to get into the playoffs and get another shot at them.”
Castleton's record improves to 10-5 and they will play their next game at home against Plymouth State on Wednesday, October 20.
Husson falls to 2-11 on the year, and will play their next match October 20 at home against Bates.
