Thoroughbreds tally big wins in season openers

September 3, 2019

Thoroughbreds fall sports are in full swing.

In a dominating display, men’s soccer started its season with a weekend sweep and a new record, thanks to junior forward Stanley Langyintuo’s remarkable four goals in one game.

Women’s soccer secured a season-opening 4-1 victory over Curry College and a 2-0 victory in non-league action with William Patterson University.

Women’s field hockey fought hard for a mid-game tie, but a third quarter shot from Saint Joseph’s College of Maine ended as a loss for the T-breds.

And on the road, Women’s volleyball opened the 2019 season powering through a rocky start for an overall 2-1 finish in the Springfield College Invitational.

Check out the game recaps below.
