UMass Minutemen blank Blue Devils
AMHERST, Mass. -- Henry Steinkamp's 55th-minute goal gave the UMass men's team a 1-0 win over Central Connecticut State in a non-conference match at Rudd Field Tuesday.
UMass (3-6-2) improved to 3-1-1 in the last five matches, completing its third shutout and second in succession for the first time since the 2012 season as the Minutemen improved their consecutive shutout streak to 209 minutes. UMass outshot the Blue Devils (1-7-2), 15-9.
Steinkamp scored on a run down the right flank, finishing with a near-post blast into the upper part of the net from close range off a Ty Goncalves through ball. The goal climaxed a UMass barrage that included a Casey Hamill shot off the far post.
