Plymouth State Men’s Soccer take down the Corsairs of UMass Dartmouth

Rutherford leads the Panthers with one goal and two assists for the win


            Plymouth, N.H. – The Plymouth State University men's soccer team set the Corsairs of UMass Dartmouth sailing, beating them 4-3 in today's wet-n-cold "Senior Day" matchup on Arold Field.  Both teams did a great job battling the very wet conditions in what was a very exciting game.  Panther Dan Shaw (Winchester, ENG) scored first, off a corner kick assisted by Nick Rutherford (Sydney, AUS).  Answering the challenge, Corsair Austin Dias, and Matt Vidal scored the next two taking the lead.  Nick Rutherford would tie it up at two moving in the intermission.  Still raining, PSU would take the lead on a goal by Joni Hongisto (Kaarina, FIN) from Colin Jerome (Lansdale, Pa.), and then by Luichi Villasmil (Maracaibo, VEN), assisted by Nick Rutherford, at 56:35. The tide turned for the Corsairs at 62:30 when they would be forced to play down a man, the result of a red card, but would score again with 10:35 to play.  The Panthers end their season at 5-9-2.
