East Providence, R.I. - The Connecticut College men´s soccer team scored twice in the opening 21:47 and went on to defeat Johnson & Wales University by a count of 6-1 in a non-conference game played at Pierce Stadium Tuesday night.
The Camels improve to 2-0 with the win while the Wildcats slip to 1-3-1 in the setback.
Senior Trevor Prophet (Nashua, N.H.) and junior Oscar Brown (Ridgefield, Conn.) both scored twice to lead the Camels. Nick Maghenzani (Allendale, N.J.)and Paul Bacigalupo (Encino, Calif.) chipped in with scores for the Camels, who out-shot the Wildcats by a count of 28-to-8 in the contest.
Casey Marini (Hampden, Mass.) finished with four saves for the Camels. Joe Ferraro (Freehold, N.J.) had 12 saves for JWU and was relieved by Sean Dorsey (Franklin, Mass.), who made one stop over the final 11:24 of regulation.
Stefano Magro (Frankfort, N.Y.) accounted for the Johnson & Wales offense with his goal in the 31st minute of play.
The Camels got on the board in the 14th minute when Mike Crosby (Sudbury, Mass.) assisted Prophet on the 20th goal of his career. Later on in the 22nd minute of action, Brown broke free on the right sideline for a goal from 10 yard outs and the Camels were on their way with a 2-0 advantage. Magro got one back for the Wildcats with 14:15 remaining in the opening half.
But Maghenzani scored a critical goal 7:54 into the second stanza and Prophet and Brown added insurance goals arriving 23 seconds apart in the 74th minute of play.
It was more than enough for Marini and the Camels continued to pull away in the 6-1 win.
