SVC men fall to NVU
JOHNSON — The Southern Vermont College men's soccer team dropped a non-conference contest at Northern Vermont University-Johnson Tuesday afternoon with the hosting Badgers claiming a 2-0 victory at Minaret Field.
Johnson put one home 10 minutes into the match and then got an insurance tally to go in the 51st minute. SVC was limited to just three shots on goal — all coming in the second half — as the Badgers snapped their three-game losing streak against the Mountaineers.
Johnson took eight shots in the opening frame while not conceding a single take to SVC. The Badgers had four shots in the opening 10 minutes of play with the last of those crossing the line into the cage to make it 1-0.
That score stood through the intermission and into the sixth minute of the second period when the Badgers put home another to garner some breathing room. All three of Southern Vermont's shots in the final 45 minutes were on frame, but they were all turned away by the Johnson keeper as the Badgers improved to 8-5 on the year.
SVC freshman keeper Diego Uquillas made five saves in the first 45 minutes of the loss (2-8-1).
SVC (2-11-1) is back at home for its next game as the Mountaineers host Elms College on Saturday for a 1 p.m. New England Collegiate Conference kickoff.
SVC's Uquillas honored
ATTLEBORO, Mass. — Southern Vermont College freshman goalie Diego Uquillas has earned his third New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Men's Soccer Rookie of the Week honor this season — picking up his latest on Tuesday.
Uquillas was perfect last week for SVC as the Mountaineer turned away all nine shots on frame that he faced through 200 minutes of action.
The Southern Vermont rookie collected his first two collegiate shutouts during the week — first making five saves in a 1-0 Wednesday win at Mass. College of Liberal Arts before coming up with four big-time saves during a hard-fought 0-0 NECC tie against New England College on Saturday.
Uquillas had previously been graced with the laurel on September 4 and 10.
