Men's Soccer Season Ends With 3-0 Tournament Loss at Worcester
WORCESTER, Mass. - The fourth-seeded Worcester State University men's soccer team claimed a 3-0 win over #5 Westfield State University in the First Round of the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament Tuesday at Coughlin Field.
With the win, Worcester State improves to 9-9-1 overall this season, and advances to the MASCAC Semifinal, where they will play top-seeded Framingham State on Friday at 4 p.m. Westfield's season comes to a close with a record of 5-12-1.
Worcester State broke the ice in the 38th minute, when junior Lincoln Henry (Kingston, Jamaica) headed home his sixth goal of the season. After a Laszlo Dorogi (West Boylston, Mass.) shot was blocked up high into the air, Henry out-jumped the Owl keeper, nodding the ball into the cage for a 1-0 lead, which Worcester State would take into the locker room.
The Lancers held a heavy 9-2 shot advantage in the opening 45 minutes, but only landed two of the nine shots on target.
With 15:30 showing on the clock, Henry put the game on ice with his second goal of the night. The midfielder walked through the Westfield State defense with some nifty footwork and fired a shot from the top of the 18-yard box past the diving Westfield State keeper for a 2-0 lead.  
An insurance marker was headed home in the 88th minute by Kristi Shore (Korce, Albania) off a Justin Echeverry (Methuen, Mass.) corner kick for his first goal of the season, giving the game its final score of 3-0.
Worcester State goalkeeper Henri Guilmette (Franklin, Mass.) earned his fourth shutout of the season, but did not have to make a save. Worcester State held a 16-7 advantage in total shots in the contest, and led the shots on goal count 7-0.
Nick Chambers (Southwick, Mass.) made four saves in goal for the Owls.
