STANDISH, Maine – Junior forward Brett Mattos (Mahopac, N.Y.) tallied two goals and an assist to help Saint Joseph’s College (10-0-1, 6-0-1 GNAC) defeat Rivier University (2-9-1, 0-5-1 GNAC), 7-0, in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) men’s soccer action at the SJC Athletics Complex on Saturday afternoon.


Junior forward Jesse Ramirez (Dumont, N.J.) put the Monks on the board in the 15th minute, when he tapped a well-placed Jackson Taylor (Gorham, Maine) throw-in into an empty net. Seventeen minutes later, Mattos potted his first of the afternoon off a Cody Elliott (Gorham, Maine) pass, lifting his team to a 2-0 lead, a score that remained heading into intermission.

Eight minutes into the second stanza, Mattos netted his conference-leading 14th goal of the year, on a rebound off a JoJo Strobino (Clifton, N.J.) shot, and sophomore Keenan Welzel (Brunswick, Maine) scored his second goal of the year 30 seconds later to give the Monks a 4-0 advantage.

Elliott and senior Trevor Lopes (Cumberland, R.I.) managed to score 27 seconds apart, with the latter launching the hosts to a 6-0 cushion. Sophomore Mitchell Duncan (Sanford, Maine) capped the game scoring in the 74th minute off a Colin Grant (Harvard, Mass.) feed.


Saint Joseph’s junior Blake Mullen (Manchester, Conn.) made four saves in 72:40 minutes and freshman David Walbridge (Hampden, Mass.) was untested in 17:20 minutes of mop-up duty.

Rivier sophomore Collin Deyarmin (Raymond, N.H.) stopped 10 shots in a losing effort.


Saint Joseph’s held considerable advantages in shots (38-4), shots on goal (17-4), and corner kicks (9-0) on the afternoon.


With the victory, Saint Joseph’s improves to 10-2-1 in the history of the series with Rivier University and has now defeated the Raiders in 10-consecutive meetings dating back to the 2008 campaign.


Saint Joseph’s travels to Boston Wednesday for a 7:00 PM conference contest at Emmanuel College.
