Sophomore Andy Dorman, left, (Flintshire, Wales) scored two goals and added two assists, while senior Joachim Kaland (Fonnes, Norway) added a pair of goals and one assist as the Terriers men's soccer team erupted for six goals en route to a 6-2 win Friday night (September 21st) over George Mason in the first game of the Diadora Classic hosted by the University of Rhode Island.
The Terriers will play Quinnipiac in the second round of the Classic on Sunday afternoon at noon.
The victory ended a two-game losing streak for the Terriers, who are now 3-2-0 for the season.
The six-goal total marked the most by a B.U. team since a 6-1 win at Towson University on November 2, 1997.
Junior Mark Lynch (Richmond, VA) opened the scoring for the Terriers when he tallied his second career goal just 2:36 into the game.
Sophomore Alan McNamara (Woodview Raheem, Ireland) earned the assist with a pass across the box that found Lynch.
George Mason managed to tie the game at 12:25 of the game when Danny Climo picked up a loose ball and beat B.U. goalkeeper Matt Smith (Lanchester, England).
Just 23 second later, Dorman put the Terriers ahead for good when he scored his first goal of the game and third of the season. Before the first half was over, the Terriers would score three more times, while George Mason scored just once.
Kaland scored two of the three goals and Dorman added his second of the game to stake B.U. to a 5-1 lead at just 35:03 of the match. Kaland assisted on Dorman's goal, while Dorman returned the favor on Kaland's goal.
George Mason managed just one goal at the 37:27 mark, but, by then, there was little question on the outcome.
The only goal scored in the second half by was Terrier freshman Erik Evjen (Askim, Norway), who tallied his first collegiate goal at 49:03. The play was set up when he headed in Dorman's corner kick.
Smith earned the win with two saves in 78:09 minutes of play. Freshman Zak Thompson (Silver Spring, MD) played the final 11:01, and did not have any saves.
