Saint Francis Shuts Out Men’s Soccer In Sunday Matinee
LORETTO, Pa. – Saint Francis (Pa.) (3-3-1) scored two goals in each half en route to a 4-0 win over St. Bonaventure (3-5) Sunday afternoon.
The Red Flash got on the board relatively early as a 13th-minute tally from Kingsley McLeod put them up 1-0. A pass from Wayne Tiller through the backline of the Bona defense found McLeod. Keeper Mitchell Mack got a hand on the ball, but it wasn't enough to prevent McLeod's first goal of the campaign.
SFU added to its lead just seven minutes later when Tamas Maffey-Stumpe headed in a corner over the head of Mack.
The score remained 2-0 until the 78th minute when Maffey-Stumpe tallied his second goal of the game. Tiller got his second assist of the afternoon when he sent a ball into the center of the box, and Maffey-Stumpe chipped it into the back of the net.
Just more than a minute later, the Red Flash capped the scoring for the afternoon when Pablo Medina chipped a cross from Mitch Kavlick into an open right side of the net.
St. Bonaventure will be back in action on Wednesday night at Cleveland State. Kickoff for the team's first midweek game of the season is set for 7.
