Men's soccer ends home slate with a bang, 9-0, over Colby-Sawyer

WALTHAM, Mass. – The senior members of the Brandeis University men's soccer team accounted for six goals and four assists today as the Judges defeated Colby-Sawyer College, 9-0, in their regular-season home finale. The nine goals scored by the Judges were their highest total since 1996.

Brandeis (8-5-3) was paced by a hat trick from senior forward Mike Snyder (Ashby, Mass.), who scored twice in the game's first 10 minutes and assisted the Judges' third goal in the 12th minute. Senior forward David Spear (Huntington, N.Y.) and senior midfielder Yuval Ezer (Netanya, Israel) each contributed a goal and an assist. Spear's goal was the first of his career. He also had a nice assist, flicking a header to Snyder on the game's first goal.

Also tallying in their final appearance on Gordon Field were midfielders Jordan Skolnick (Mansfield Center, Conn.), who had his second career goal, and Scott Zackaroff (Bath, Ohio), who assisted Snyder's third goal.

Colby-Sawyer (6-9-2) managed 11 shots, but only two of them ended up on-goal. Junior netminder Bill Closs (Merrimack, N.H.) had eight saves for the Chargers in a losing effort.

Brandeis travels to Lasell College on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. before heading to Washington University in St. Louis and the University of Chicago for UAA play this weekend. Colby-Sawyer wraps up its regular season on Wednesday at Wentworth Institute of Technology before the Commonwealth Coast Conference tournament kicks off over the weekend.
