Last week’s wins over Dartmouth College and Marist College bumped the University of New Hampshire men’s soccer team higher in the United Soccer Coaches National rankings.
The Wildcats climbed three spots in Week 4, going from No. 18 to No. 15 with 245 points. The Wildcats added a 3-1 victory at Quinnipiac Tuesday afternoon to bump their record to 6-0-2.
Exeter’s Jacob Gould was the hero on Saturday when he scored the game-winning goal in the 106th minute to end double overtime. On Tuesday, he broke a 1-1 tie in the 86th minute of the match against Quinnipiac, roughly 50 minutes after assisting Bedford’s Josh Bauer to open the scoring in the 36th minute.
Gould is tied for second on the team in goals scored (two) with three other players, including Windham’s Chris Arling. Bauer’s goal was his first of the year.
Graduate student Fabian Lutz has also made a big impact in the early going, leading UNH in goals scored (three) and points (eight), and is tied for second in assists (two).
UNH will play one more match this week; a home tilt against Binghamton University on Friday at Wildcat Stadium. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
Saint Anselm's Flanagan honored
Bedford’s Delaney Flanagan was named Northeast-10 Conference Rookie of the Week on Tuesday for her efforts at Saturday’s UMass Dartmouth Invitational.
The Saint Anselm College freshman completed UMass Dartmouth’s 5K course in 18:49.21 to lead the Hawks’ women’s cross country team to a fifth place finish out of 37 programs. Individually, she placed 11th out of 257 participants.
