Toms River, NJ - Ocean County College Men's Soccer improved to 6-3 overall (5-3 in GSAC) in a 3-0 shutout of the visiting Owls of Union County College on Tuesday (10/1).
The match was scoreless for the first 15 minutes, until Ocean freshman Aniello Lubrano put the Vikings on the board with a skillfully-converted penalty kick. The Vikings improved upon the lead when sophomore team captain Kevin Miller slotted home a precise finish (assisted by Harmony Bell-Gam) past a sprawling Jacques Fuentes to put Ocean up 2-0. Miller, who has been the leader and backbone of Ocean's defensive corps, strategically involves himself in the Viking attack as needed, and has two goals as a result of that forward-thinking, aggressive mindset. Ocean freshman William De La O rounded out team scoring in the 52nd minute by finishing a beautiful 25 yard shot past the Owls' goalkeeper, with an assist from Kevin Miller.
The Vikings next take on Monroe College (Bronx) at home this Friday (10/4), at 4 p.m.
