Men’s Soccer Defeats Colgate 3-0 to Open up Patriot League Play
100 years after the two teams met for the first time the Army West Point Men’s Soccer repeated history by defeating the Colgate Raiders 3-0. The 1921 Black Knights defeated the Raiders by the same result in 1921. The Cadets powered through the rough weather to pick up a decisive result in the Patriot League opener and improve their record to 4-2-1.
In typical Army men's soccer fashion, the team came out running on the Raiders, keeping the ball in the Colgate half of the field for nearly the entire first seven minutes of play. Andrew Guerra and D'Anthony Brown put two early shots on goal to test the Colgate keeper, but neither were able to find the back of the net.
Oscar Pereira followed up with another shot on goal that was deflected by the Colgate keeper to set up a corner for Army. Cooper Warren took the corner to the Black Knights, putting on a cross on net that found Justin McStay, who then deflected the ball right onto the foot of Jack Eaton, who buried a shot in the back of the net to give Army an early 1-0 advantage.
