GOSHEN, Ind. – The Goshen College men's soccer team extended its streak to nearly 200 minutes without allowing a goal after its second-straight shutout, 3-0 over visiting Manchester University Wednesday night.
Senior Daniel Martin opened the scoring for the Maple Leafs in the 14th minute after finding himself on the end of a Caleb Longenecker through ball. It was Martin's team-leading fifth goal of the season, having scored in three of his last four games.
The 1-0 lead held through the halftime break. In the 54th minute Goshen added on when senior Charlie Frederick volleyed in a long ball from Jacob Yoder. Freshman Chris Vendrely capped the scoring in the 78th with his first career goal. Longenecker was again the distributor as he set up his team-leading fifth goal of the year.
Senior Brian O'Leary made three saves to preserve his second shutout in as many nights. The Maple Leafs have now not allowed a goal in 199 minutes, 10 seconds of play, dating back to late in the Lawrence Tech victory last Saturday.
Goshen (5-3) begins Crossroads League play on Saturday when they travel to Spring Arbor University.
