The University of Rochester men’s soccer team picked up its fifth win of the season this past week against Moravian College. The 3-0 victory marked the 600th win for the men’s soccer program over its 82 years of existence.
The ‘Jackets got off to a hot start against Moravian; senior Andrew Greenway scored his fourth goal of the season during the first 10 minutes of play. Junior Jeff Greblick doubled the ‘Jackets’ score when he found the back of the net off a hard blast at the 24:26 mark. Greblick scored his third goal of the season (his second of the night) during the second half of the Moravian game, bringing the score to 3-0.
The ‘Jackets ended the game with four shots each from Greenway and Greblick, two from junior Michael Cross, and one each from senior Tyler Buck, junior Tanner Chester and junior Alessandro Incerto. Sophomore keeper Redd Brown was only required to make a single save for Rochester in nearly 80 minutes of play. Senior goalie Marshal Davidson played the remaining 10 minutes and was not required to make a save.
The ‘Jackets are one of eight teams in Division III to reach the 600 win mark. The program now holds a total overall record of 600-333-109. Head coach Chris Apple has an impressive 201 wins to his name in his 14 years on the sidelines at UR.
The ‘Jackets look to gain another victory against the New York University Violets on Oct. 30.
