St. Mary's City, Md – The St. Mary's College of Maryland men's soccer team won a Sunday afternoon contest against the visiting Swarthmore College Garnet, 3-0, as three different Seahawk players found the back of the net.
St. Mary's 3, Swarthmore 0
How It Happened
- St. Mary's came out of the gates fast when junior captain Juwan Kearson (Baltimore, Md./St. Paul's School) notched his second goal of the season on a cross from senior captain Sunny Chhatani (Lima, Peru/Indian Creek [Md.]).
- The Seahawks put two more in before halftime as both sophomore midfielder Brad Moore (Crofton, Md./South River) and first-year forward Tyler Kurack (Leonardtown, Md./Leonardtown) put away their first goals of the season.
- St. Mary's shutdown Swarthmore all throughout the day and was aided by some key saves from senior captain Zach Haussler (Woodbine, Md./Glenelg).
For the Seahawks (4-4-0)
- Scorers: Kurack (1 goal, 1 assist); Kearson (1 goal); Moore (1 goal); Chhatani (1 assist); Tanenbaum (1 assist)
- Goalkeeper: Haussler (4 saves, 0 goals allowed, 90:00)
- St. Mary's finished the game with 17 shots (seven on goal) and also managed two corner kicks.
For Swarthmore (2-4-1)
- Scorers: None
- Goalkeeper: Oliver Steinglass (4 saves, 3 goals allowed, 90:00)
- The Garnet had eight shots and earned one corner on the day.
- Today's contest pitted current Swarthmore leader and former St. Mary's men's soccer coach, Eric Wagner (1997-2001), against his former player and current Seahawk coach, Alun Oliver '04. Coach Oliver just passed Wagner on the all-time coaching victories list for second all-time.
- This is just the fourth time the Seahawks have picked up a victory against Swarthmore in 13 meetings.
