The University of Vermont scored two goals in the second half to break away with a 2-0 shutout victory over Siena College in men's soccer action in Burlington, VT this afternoon. With the loss, the Saints enter conference play this weekend 1-6 on the season.
Despite an evenly played match-up that saw just a one-shot differential between the two teams, the Saints were unable to finish on their opportunities. Vermont, however, had better success at finding the back of the net, as the Catamounts used a second-half surge to defeat Siena.
Matt Chavez scored the first goal for the Catamounts at the 58:10 mark after beating keeper Patrick Henry 1-on-1. Tony Anderson then added an insurance goal, off a through ball by Chavez, with less than three minutes remaining to give Vermont the 2-0 victory.
Siena fired off 13 shots while Vermont recorded 14. The game also saw even numbers in terms of corner kicks as each team had six.
Patrick Henry made four saves in the net for the Saints, while Catamount keeper David Sullivan came up with two stops for Vermont.
The Saints enter MAAC play this weekend as they host defending conference champion Loyola College. Game-time is set for 3:00 p.m.
