Men?s soccer defeats College of Eastern Utah in 6-0 game

By Corbin Godfrey , Staff Writer

The Utah men’s soccer team won its fourth game in four weekends when it beat College of Eastern Utah 6-0 on Saturday. The Utes found the back of the net six times, falling one short of their season record of seven, which was set against Southern Utah University in September. With the win, Utah improved to 4-1-2 on the season.

The debut of three new players didn’t slow down the red-hot Utes on Saturday. Nate McCoy, Matt Sulivan and Parker Phillips joined the team at just the right time, as the Utes continued their great play on the pitch.

Head coach Gilbert Gaertner said he was impressed with the newcomers.

“Our high level of play did not change when the new players came in,” he said. “They executed nicely and got the job done.”

Mitch Edmunds and Sam Fleushaus led the team with a pair of goals each. Nori Itakura and Leo Yu each contributed with a goal as well.

The Utes are 3-0-1 in NIRSA conference play so far, and look to stay hot this weekend as they travel to Ceadar City to play SUU at 2 p.m.
