Enman tallies two points for Lyons
NORTON, Mass. – The Wheaton College men's soccer team erased an early 1-0 deficit to claim an eventual 4-2 triumph over non-conference opponent Wentworth Institute of Technology on Saturday afternoon at Keefe Field.
Lyons' junior midfielder/forward Scott Enman (Brooklyn, N.Y./Packer Collegiate Institute) potted one goal and dished out one assist, while classmate Luke Finkelstein (Peabody, Mass./Peabody) and sophomores Kevin Gil (Pawtucket, R.I./Wheeler School) and Michael Williams (Los Angeles, Calif./Millbrook School) all contributed one goal, respectively.
Sophomore forward Arberi Ferraj (Moosup, Conn./Plainfield) put Wentworth on the board just 4:31 into the contest finishing a nice pass from sophomore back Matthew Matuska (Rochester, N.Y./Irondequiot) for his first goal of the season.
Finkelstein evened the score in the 27th minute on an unassisted tally, his first of the season, and Enman buried a feed from Gil 42-seconds later to seize momentum and take a 2-1 advantage into the break.
Williams pushed the Lyons ahead 3-1 in the 55th minute with his second goal in as many games on a setup by Enman. Wentworth's Max Hilchuk (Wethersfield, Conn./Wethersfield) answered at the 63:56 mark off a pass from freshman Alec Watkinson (Merrimack, N.H./Merrimack), but Gil squashed any chance of a Leopards' comeback bid in the 72nd minute with his second marker of the season.
Freshman Steven Pinski (Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y./Hendrick-Hudson) picked up his first career assist on Gil's tally.
Wheaton sophomore goalkeeper Matt Dickey (Newton, Mass./Northfield Mount Hermon School) collected four saves to push his record to 2-0-0 on the young campaign. Wentworth senior goalkeeper Cody Gibb (Foster, R.I./Ponaganset) stopped six shots in the loss.
The Lyons (2-0, 0-0 NEWMAC) head to Western New England University on Wednesday, September 4 with first-touch scheduled for 4 p.m. Wentworth (0-2) hosts Johnson & Wales in its home opener on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
