Men's Soccer Drops 3-1 Decision to Dominican

NORTH ANDOVER, MA – Three unanswered second half goals from Dominican College led the Charges to victory over Merrimack, 3-1 on Sunday afternoon in the finale of the 2009 Merrimack Invitational.

In his second appearance this season, sophomore Robbie Sabadoz (Ottawa, ON) tallied his second goal in the 26th minute from Evan Burokas (Auburn, MA) and Olof Lindhe (Stockholm, Sweden).

Despite out-shooting the Chargers 15-10, the Warriors ended their unbeaten streak at three this fall thanks to eight saves from Charger goalkeeper Brandon Heembrock.

“They definitely stole one from us today, but we simply made some stupid mistakes,” Warrior Head Coach Tony Martone said following the match on Sunday. “Even though it's one we should have had, it is good knowing that we can play at that level with a top team like Dominican.”

In goal for the Warriors, senior captain Ben Carvalho (New Bedford, MA) recorded his first loss on the season with three saves for Merrimack.

Opening their Northeast-10 Conference schedule, Merrimack returns to Warrior Field on Saturday, September 12 to face Southern Connecticut at 7:00pm.
