Manchester, N.H. (October 22) -- On a blustery Wednesday afternoon, the Saint Anselm men's soccer played to a 0-0 scoreless tie with No. 4 ranked Southern New Hampshire in Northeast-10 action at Melucci Field.
Shots were nearly even at 15-14 in favor of Southern New Hampshire, but the Hawks heled an 8-5 advantage in the second half. Two of those shots came off the foot of Saint Anselm senior Sam Lamptey (Worcester, Mass.) in the final minutes of regulation. Lamptey fired one shot at SNHU goalie Sean Lambert, which was saved. The rebound came right back to Lamptey, but Lambert blocked that effort out of bounds to preserve the tie.
Lambert made seven saves in the tie, while Saint Anselm keeper John Corridan (Holliston, Mass.) made five stops in the shutout.
The Hawks are now 6-8-2 overall and 4-5-2 in league play, while Southern N.H. sits at 13-1-3 overall and 9-0-3 in the Northeast-10. Saint Anselm returns to action on Saturday night as the Hawks travel to Southern Connecticut for a 7 p.m. start at Jess Dow Field.
