Men's Soccer: Quick First Half Start Propels Eagles Past Nighthawks, 3-1
Nashua, NH – Senior Tim Amberman (Shrewsbury, Penn.) notched two scores while rookie Kyle Walton (Brookline, N.H.) added a solo score in the opening half and the Daniel Webster men's soccer team scored a key New England Collegiate Conference victory posting a 3-1 decision over upstart Newbury College Tuesday afternoon.
Joe Keene (Bristol, N.H.) added three saves in goal as the Eagles (8-5-1, 4-1 NECC), knocked the Nighthawks (4-8, 4-1 NECC) out of a tie for first place in the conference with their first NECC loss of the season.
Amberman got the hosts going with his first of the season just 1:22 into the contest, redirecting a Lino Chaves (Revere, Mass.) cross pass for the early lead and Walton upped it to 2-0 in the 12th minute with an unassisted tally.
Amberman would make it 3-0 with 4:11 to go before the break for his first of the year, putting home a Nicholas Klesh (Bedford, N.H.) pass for a three-goal advantage at the half.
From there, the Eagle team defense clamped down, limiting the Nighthawks to just one second-half shot as Newbury leading scorer Shaundize Moosavizadeh (Winchester, Mass.) converted in the 62nd to break the Eagles shutout bid.
DWC would finish with a 10-4 shots on goal advantage (14-6 total).
William McNally (Grafton, Mass.) finished with seven saves in goal for Newbury.
