ST. MARY’S CITY, Md. – Senior captain Roshawn Panton (Bowie, Md./Eleanor Roosevelt) recorded his second multiple-goal game of the season Wednesday night as Panton scored twice in leading the No. 6 St. Mary’s College of Maryland men’s soccer team to a 3-0 shutout of York College of Pennsylvania in non-conference action at the Jamie L. Roberts Stadium for their sixth consecutive victory.
How It Happened
- Panton put the Seahawks on the scoreboard early, corralling a misplayed York clear and using his left foot to chip it into the top left corner from the top of the penalty box at 6:59.
- First-year forward Alex Ochman (Rockville, Md./Thomas S. Wootton) got in the action in the 22nd minute with his first collegiate goal. Ochman headed in a cross from junior defender Jack Eskay (Frederick, Md./Urbana) at the far post into the top right corner for the 2-0 St. Mary’s College lead.
- The Seahawks would head into halftime with the two-goal advantage as only one of York’s six shots were on target.
- For Panton’s second goal of the night, Eskay fired in a shot from the far sideline, which was denied by Brady Bixler, and Panton collected the rebound and rocketed it into the lower left corner in the 55th minute.
