CHANGING IT UP
Northeastern men walloped by UNH Wildcats
DURHAM, N.H. -- Northeastern men's team coach Chris Gbandi went with a revamped starting lineup, but the changes failed to produce as the Huskies sustained a 3-0 loss to New Hampshire in a non-conference match at Wildcat Stadium Wednesday night.
The Huskies (2-5-0) struggled in the opening half, failing to produce a shot on goal, but rallied behind Khori Bennett, a second half substitute, whose best chance was saved in the 64th minute.
Chris Arling scored twice, increasing his team lead to seven goals, and Jack Dickson added a goal for UNH (7-1-0).
Arling sent a one-timer past Matt Dabrowski after Jack Dickson took a long pass in stride ahead of Edward Okey, then crossed in the 18th minute. Dickson scored in the 51st minute, finishing at the left post after a Chris Wingate free kick went was headed across from the back post by Lalaina Randriamanantena. Arling made a run into the left side of the penalty area and finished past Dabrowski for his second goal in the 57th minute.
Stone Barcomb, Jeff Choonoo, Adam Gibbs, Jack Reynolds and Jonas Taenzer made their first starts of the season for NU.
