CLAREMONT, Calif. – The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men's soccer team beat Cal Lutheran 6-0 in the Monday nightcap. The Stag's offense and defense contributed to tonight's blowout win over the Kingsmen to climb to first place in SCIAC.
Junior Joseph Romano scored the second goal, assisted by freshman Michael Crowley near the end of the first half. At half time the Stags were already in the lead 2-0 over the conference rival Kingsmen.
The flood gates opened up in the second half when it seemed the Stags could not be stopped. Freshman Mehron Abdi scored from a pass by freshman Alex Censullo in the 52nd minute and then sophomore Hogan Marhoefer slipped one past the keeper in the 65th minute. Crowley notched his second assist of the night and sixth of the season.
Just three minutes later, Hallberg scored again for CMS putting the stags up 5-0. Freshman William Cresap had the assist this time.
The Stags improved their overall record to 9-4-1 (8-2-1 in SCIAC) and take first place in the conference standings after tonight's win.
CMS hosts Pomona-Pitzer this coming Saturday at 1pm in the 6th Street Rivalry match-up.
