Men’s soccer’s losing streak was finally snapped on Tuesday night, when the team traveled to Poultney, Vt. to play against Green Mountain College. The Trailblazers emerged victorious with a final score of 2-1.
The win comes at the tail end of a four game losing streak that had left the team winless since Sept. 13.
The losing trend had left the ‘Blazers with an overall record 3-6-1 and a conference record of 0-2-1.
The most recent loss was on Saturday, when the Trailblazers fell to Mass. Maritime, 1-0.
While not a conference game, there is no telling what kind of moral boost the Green Mountain victory might give the team.
MCLA struck first in the game, with junior Jake McCall scoring 22 minutes into the game. Green Mountain responded in the second half, and for a while it seemed as though the game might play into a draw.
But those assumptions were shattered when sophomore Drew Webster broke the tie with his first goal of the season.
Eleven games into the season, the Trailblazers have only managed to score 9 times with 129 shots on net.
This is in contrast with their opponents who have scored 12 times, but with a whopping 169 attempts on net.
The Trailblazers next test will be in a conference game at Framingham State on Saturday
