MANCHESTER, N.H. (Sept. 9, 2018) - Second-half goals from Emgi Gousse and Pedro Lamarre lifted the Queens College men's soccer team to a 2-0 victory over Saint Anselm on Sunday (Sept. 9) in New Hampshire.
Joseph Weinstein made six saves in net, earning the clean sheet and victory in his collegiate debut for the Knights (2-2-1).
After a quiet first half on both sides, Queens struck for a goal with just over a minute being played in the second frame. After Rudi Ibrahim volleyed a shot that was blocked in front, Gousse slid a shot past Saint Anselm goalie Jacob Rostkowski to put QC ahead by a 1-0 margin. The Knights' second goal was scored with about fifteen minutes to play in a similar situation. Angelo Chavez took a shot that was parried in front by Rostkowski but Lamarre cleaned up the rebound and put away the insurance marker to effectively end the Hawks' chances of scoring an equalizer.
Queens outshot Saint Anselm by a 22-11 margin, with a 16-5 advantage in the second half. Gousse lobbied seven of the Knights' shots and targeted three shots on goal as did András Breuer. The Knights also earned a 7-4 advantage in corner kicks, blanking the Hawks (3-5) over the final forty-five minutes of play.
Queens will begin ECC play on Saturday (Sept. 15) when the Knights face District of Columbia in Washington, D.C. at 1 p.m.
