Edge, MCLA Men Earn MASCAC Shutout

WORCESTER, Mass. -- Mount Greylock Regional School graduate Sam Edge made four saves Saturday to earn a shutout as the MCLA men's soccer team earned its first MASCAC win of the season, 1-0, at Worcester State.
 
Junior Andrew Nygard scored the contest's only goal in the 31st minute, as he headed home a Ryan Wanek throw-in to put his team ahead 1-0.
 
In the second half, Worcester State (4-8, 1-3) poured on constant pressure, but just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. In the 52nd minute, Worcester State had three consecutive brilliant scoring opportunities, but MCLA keeper Edge was up to the task with phenomenal diving saves on attempts from Laszlo Dorogi, Alfred Koroma and Prince Gyau.
 
Worcester State appeared to tie the game in 87th minute, but a Lincoln Henry goal was taken off the board after he was ruled offside on the play. Worcester State was unable to mount any more high-quality chances, and the Trailblazers (3-8, 1-3) escaped with the 1-0 victory.
