BROOKLYN, N.Y. (Oct. 15, 2019) – The U.S. Merchant Marine Academy men's soccer team got back in the win column with a Skyline Conference victory over St. Joseph's-Brooklyn, 5-2, on Tuesday night at the Aviator Sports Center in Brooklyn. With the win, the Mariners improve to 9-4-1 (6-1-1 Skyline), while the Bears drop to 4-10-1 (2-5 Skyline) after suffering the loss.
Senior Nick Roros (Northport, N.Y.) led the Mariners with two goals in the 13th and 24th minutes, both assisted by classmate Matt McCurnin (Newark, Del.), while McCurnin found the back of the net between those two tallies in the 17th minute.

St. Joe's got on the board in the 53rd minute when sophomore Joseph Sepulveda scored the first of his two tallies, but the Mariners responded right back just over four minutes later when sophomore Abram Ehrhorn (Papillion, Neb.) converted off of a corner kick taken by senior Sam McGill (Canton, Ohio). Sepulveda closed out the scoring in the contest with his second tally in the 72nd minute.
In goal, senior Matthew Milner (Mount Airy, Md.) earned the victory after playing the first 62.5 minutes. He was replaced by freshman Chase Miller (Boise, Idaho), who secured the win in the final 27.5 minutes of action.
