Men’s Soccer Overpowers Siena in a 5-0 Win
In the second game of its three-game homestand, the Army West Point Men’s Soccer Team put on an offensive showcase, featuring five goals from four Cadets in a 5-0 win over the Siena Saints.
Even though he plays as a backline defender, D'Anthony Brown shined on offense tonight, scoring two goals to lift the Cadets to their third win of the season. He and Oscar Pereira lead the Black Knight's offense that fired off a total of 18 shots in the contest, nine of which ended up on goal.
In typical fashion, Army came out of the gates with energy quickly moving the ball up the field into Saints territory. Pereira took the first shot for the Cadets just four minutes into the game. Two more shots from D'Anthony Brown and Atef Sikazwe missed the mark before Brown was able to put one past the keeper to break the scoreless tie.
Brown, a defender, made a terrific run from the backline and collected the ball in space off a pass from Cooper Warren to get the Cadets on the board.
Just eight minutes later, it was John Poncy who found the back of the net for his first goal of the season. Pereira was able to work around a few Saint defenders before finding Poncy who was able to collect the ball, turn and find the bottom left corner for the second goal of the night. Read more.
