- T.J. Gore notched a goal and an assist to lead the University of Vermont men’s soccer team past University of New Hampshire, 3-1, Wednesday afternoon on Lewis Fields. With the loss the Wildcats fall to 3-4-4, 0-1-1 in America East, while the Catamounts earn their first conference win of the season and improve to 4-8-0, 1-1-0.

Tyler Hasman ended the Catamounts’ four-game scoreless streak with a goal just 11:16 into the game. The Vermont scoring drought lasted 431 minutes and 33 seconds. Panos Georgiadis passed the ball to Hasman who took a hard shot from the top of the box. The ball deflected in net off a UNH defender.

Kyle Urso (Lombard, Ill.) evened the score in the 24th minute with a goal, his second of the season, off a direct kick. The ball was hit hard through a crowd of players into the lower left corner of the net.

Just over five minutes later (31:40), Gore put the Catamounts back on top netting the eventual game-winner. Jordan Crasilneck, positioned on the top of the box, delivered the ball to Gore on the left side. Gore fired on net, beating UNH goalkeeper Mike Jenne (Vernon, N.Y.) on the right side. Matt Hennessey increased the Catamounts lead to two goals with a goal off the right post. Adam Marcellus (Malvern, Pa.) and Gore chased down a ball into the Wildcat defensive box. Gore retrieved the ball and passed it back to a charging Hennessey who fired on net. The ball rifled off the right side post, which deflected into the left side just inside the net.  

Jenne finished the game with six saves, while Vermont’s Roger Scully turned away two. The Wildcats had a slight edge in shots for the first half of play 6-5, but Vermont recorded 10 in the second half alone, totaling 15 and 9 for UNH.

The Wildcats look to bounce back when they travel to Albany on Saturday, Oct. 13. The team will return home on Wednesday, Oct. 17 when they play host to Stony Brook. Kickoff is slated for 3 p.m.
