WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Sophomore forward Jason Caro (Lanham, Md./Good Counsel) put two in the back of the net as the St. Mary’s College of Maryland men’s soccer team used a pair of second-half goals to notch their third straight win Saturday afternoon. The Seahawks (12-5-0, 6-1-0 UEC) posted a 2-0 shutout of Penn College (3-11-4, 1-3-3 UEC) to maintain a hold of second in the conference standings.
