After trouncing the Merchant Marine Academy 5-0 on Wednesday night, the men’s soccer team matched up against the No. 15 Connecticut College Camels on Saturday afternoon. The Mammoths went down early in the first half when a Camel free kick whipped into the box, deflected off the outstretched mitts of keeper Bernie White ’22 and toward a waiting Conn College attacker, who buried it in the net.
The scoreline held until the last minutes of the game when, with just 76 seconds remaining in regulation, German Giammattei ’22 pulled in a diagonal long ball from center back Nico Kenary ’22 and slotted it home past the outstretched fingertips of the Camel’s keeper. In the overtime period, nothing differentiated the two sides and the match ended in a draw. The Mammoths return to action when they travel to Williamstown next Saturday to face off against the Ephs.
