SVC men edged by Canton

CANTON, N.Y. — The Southern Vermont College defense was nearly able to force overtime Sunday afternoon in non-conference men's soccer action at SUNY Canton, but the hosting Kangaroos scored in the 81st minute for the 1-0 victory.

Canton outshot SVC by a 26-2 clip and had a 9-0 advantage in attempts on net throughout the day. The Roos also took a 10-0 upper hand in corner kicks as they controlled the pace of the game, although they were nearly kept off the board by the Mountaineer backfield and goalkeeping unit.

The hosts took 11 shots to SVC's one in the opening 45 minutes of play, but Berg turned away all six that were on frame to keep the match scoreless at halftime. The Mountaineers conceded just a single shot on net in the first 35 minutes of the second stanza — only to see the next Roo attempt beat the SVC netminder for the slim 1-0 edge. Southern Vermont got a shot off four minutes later in a push to tie it up, but the ball sailed high before Canton closed out the win.

Mountaineer goalkeeper Dylan Berg posted eight saves in the loss (4-10).

Sunday's game was the Mountaineers' seventh of the year decided by a single tally; the Mountaineers are 3-4 in those contests.

SVC (4-10) is next in action on Saturday with a 3:30 p.m. New England Collegiate Conference game at home against Dean College.

SVC women record fifth straight clean sheet

BENNINGTON — Once it found a rhythm, the Southern Vermont College women's soccer offense kept rolling for the Mountaineers to post a 5-0 New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) win over Wheelock College at Everett Field on Saturday.

SVC scored four times during a 15-minute stretch of the first half, and the hosts added one more in the second stanza while keeping the Wildcats off the board throughout the match for the team's fifth-straight shutout.

A pair of SVC players scored their first goals of the year, including senior captain Natalie Rose Canterbury. Junior captain Molly Madore registered a goal and an assist in the win.

SVC got the ball deep into WC territory with a launched free kick, and a failed clearing attempt from the Wildcat defense allowed it to find Canterbury; she pushed home a shot from a few yards away for her third collegiate tally.

Just over 10 minutes later, Southern Vermont struck again.. Madore fought the ball away from a Wheelock defender on the left side of the pitch and worked it into the box near the goal line; she sent a pass across the frame where junior Vanessa Kendall ran on and slammed it into the back of the cage for her first career goal.

Sixty-three seconds after that, SVC connected once again. Sophomore Ashley Blom took the ball in the middle of the pitch and sent a great pass up the gut and through the Wheelock defense; classmate Taylor Mallett got on the other end of the play and sent her first touch from the top of the box into the lower-left corner of the frame for her third of the season.

Nicole Shapiro took the ball from about 25 yards out on the right side of the field and carried it all the way to the six-yard box in the 37th minute. She sent in a pass at the last second to the middle of the goal area where Madore was waiting to punch in her fifth of the year on her first touch.

Almost 25 minutes after the intermission, SVC found the back of the net one last time. Shapiro got to a Wildcat clearing attempt near the right touchline and sent the ball back in towards the top of the box; junior Naya Cerda met it there and took a touch to settle the ball before lacing her second of the season into the left part of the net.

The Mountaineers improve to 7-4 with their five-game winning streak and move to 2-1 in league play; they will next head to Mitchell College on Monday for a 1 p.m. NECC matchup.
