EASTON, MA – The Merrimack men’s soccer team tuned
up for the upcoming Northeast-10 Tournament with a 6-1 win over
Stonehill College Tuesday afternoon.
The Warriors finish fifth in the conference with a 10-4-3 overall and a 7-4-2 conference record. They will travel to either UMass Lowell, Le Moyne or Franklin Pierce on Sunday for a quarterfinal match (time TBA).
Freshman Robbie Sabadoz netted his first career
hat trick and added an assist. On his first goal, he took a through
ball 30 yards out, faked out his defender and then the goalie, for
the easy tap in.
Snapping a season-long three-game winless streak, Maxime Obongono and Evan Burokas each tallied their first goals of the season, with Burokas his first collegiate goal. Eric Gomes added another while Wayne Sygove earned an assist. Obongono’s came at just 1:03, and it was 3-0 20 minutes into the game. Burokas also notched a helper giving him his first three-point day.
Stonehill finishes its season 4-10-3 (1-9-2 NE-10).
