(Fairfield, CT) - The co-captains of the Men's Soccer team both came through with big second half goals, leading Sacred Heart to a big conference win over the Bryant Bulldogs Friday night at Campus Field.
Marcello Castro (Panana, Brazil) tied the game in the 62nd minute, finding the back of the net with a header in a scramble for his team-leading sixth goal of the season. Simon Harrsen (Almdorf, Germany) earned the assist on the play. Omer Levy (Yahud, Israel) then scored with five minutes left, set up by Giancarlo Maurello (Rego Park, NY) to give SHU its first lead in the 85th minute.
The Bulldogs took the game's first lead in the 37th minute on a goal by Tony Flaim, assisted by Eddie Curry. However, SHU goalkeeper Tucker Hackett (Madison, CT) held to a manageable deficit for the Pioneers with six saves, including four in the second half.
Sacred Heart takes on CCSU Sunday afternoon, October 21 at 1:00 pm in New Britain.
