WORCESTER, Mass. (October 4, 2017) –
A second half goal lifted the Clark University men's soccer team to a 2-1 victory over Western New England University on Wednesday evening in non-conference action at Granger Field.

• Munroe got the Cougars on the board at the 29:02 mark, when he got past the Western New England defense and chipped a shot over junior goalkeeper Sam Brewer (Westford, Mass.), who came out to play the ball.
• Brown equalized for the Golden Bears in the 34th minute, however, when he took a pass from Pingree on the left side of the 18-yard box and buried a low shot inside the far post.
• The score remained tied until Sheridan put the Cougars back in front at the 63:44 mark with the goal that would stand as the game-winner.
