Led by a charge in the second half that featured four goals, the Pioneers cruised to a 6-1 victory over Mercy College on Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Pioneer Soccer Park in Brookville, N.Y.
The Pioneers scored the games’ first goal, courtesy of senior forward Per Forgaard, who used his head to beat the keeper. That was the first of his two goals during the game. Later, in the 29th minute, graduate back Seb Baxter doubled the Pioneer lead with a diving header.
Goals in the second half by Forgaard, sophomore mid- fielder Harry Pearse, and senior forwards Matias Ruiz and Alfred Lindberg rounded out the scoring on the day, giving the Pioneers the dominating 6-1 victory.
The team is back in action on Friday, Oct. 23, when they host Roberts Wesleyan College in an ECC showdown. Kickoff is set for noon.
