PSU Men's Soccer defeats Southern Maine

Rutherford and Shaw lead the Panther Attack

            Plymouth, N.H. – The Plymouth State University men's soccer team cruised by the Huskies of Southern Maine, ending a two game home losing streak.  Finding the net today was not a chore for the Panther squad.  USM struck first at 22:31 with a six yard rebound shot, which was quickly countered by PSU's Dan Shaw (Winchester, ENG), who scored again at 76:14.  Three other Panthers got net for the win; Nick Rutherford (Sydney, AUS) for a pair, Truls Julseth (Fredrikstad, NOR), and Chris Gonzalez (Strafford, Ct.) each for one.
