2 min read
Well done to former FirstPoint USA client and Yellow Jackets Sophomore forward Ike Ekwueme (Manchester, England). He scored two second half goals to lead the American International College men's soccer team to a 3-0 Northeats-10 victory at the University of New Haven Tuesday afternoon. The Yellow Jackets improved to 3-4-1 overall and 2-3-0 in the NE-10, while the loss dropped the Chargers' record to 0-6-2 overall and 0-5-0 in conference play. Senior forward Thomas Denomme (North Smithfield, R.I.) scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in the 34th-minute with the assist credited to senior back Barnaba Madol (Manchester, N.H.). It was his team-leading fourth goal of the season and his third in two games. Denomme setup Ekwueme's first goal of the game in the 79th-minute and Ekwueme capped buried his second shot of the game 10 minutes later off a feed from sophomore midfielder Miguel Rodriguez-Lapman (Cheshire, Conn.). Sophomore keeper Jason Ryan (Peabody, Mass.) stopped four shots to earn his third shutout of the season, while senior keeper J.J. Corneau (Wallingford, Conn.) recorded two saves in taking the loss for New Haven. AIC outshot the Chargers 11-10 in the match and claimed a 3-1 margin in corner kicks.
