Baltimore, Md.— UMBC men's soccer took down Howard, 3-0 with a record crowd on hand at Retriever Soccer Park. 2,873 fans packed the stands and hill, as UMBC got two own goals and a goal from sophomore Colin Weyant (Perry Hall, Md./Perry Hall) in the 80th minute to move to 2-0 on the year.
The scoring got started in the first half as a cross from Cormac Noel (Todmorden, England) was deflected into the goal from a Howard defender to give UMBC a 1-0 lead.
The Retrievers would add to their score in the 74th minute as Weyant crossed the ball in and was headed in by a Bison defender giving UMBC a 2-0 lead. Weyant would add a tally of his own just minutes later. He took a beautiful through ball from junior Patrick Jean-Gilles (Woodbridge, Va./South County) and placed it into the right side to make it 3-0 UMBC.
Freshman keeper Ciaran O'Loughlin (Birkenhead, England) recorded his second straight shutout in as many games, making three saves on Monday.
Overall, the Retrievers out-shot the Bison, 20-4, earning 12 corners on the evening.
The Retrievers will return to action on Saturday, Sept. 2 against Villanova. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. in Philadelphia.
