Men's Soccer Rallies In Second Half For Win at Chestnut Hill

LAFAYETTE HILL, Pa. – The Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) men's soccer team (1-6-1, 1-2-0 CACC) scored twice in less than three minutes to end its early skid with a 2-1 victory at Chestnut Hill (3-3-1, 2-2-0 CACC) on Wednesday night.

The Griffins wasted little time in getting on the board, striking in just the fourth minute of play. Chestnut Hill got the better of play in the first half, outshooting Jefferson, 5-3, and owning a 2-1 advantage in corner kicks.

The Rams made adjustments at halftime and dominated the second period, posting a 10-2 shot advantage and making four corner kicks to three for Chestnut Hill. Jefferson's effort finally paid off in the 75th minute, when senior Charlie Livesey picked up his third goal in the last two matches, putting the Rams level. Freshman Michael Bulzoni earned the assist on the tally.

Just 2:26 later, Livesey took a corner kick and junior Val Mokrejs capitalized, heading the ball in from the back post to put Jefferson in front. The Rams' defense shut down the Griffins after that, not allowing a shot for the remainder of time to ice the victory.

- Junior Kris Donaldson made one save for Jefferson.
- It was the Rams' fourth straight win against Chestnut Hill.

The Rams welcome Bloomfield for Homecoming on Saturday, October 5 at 2:30 p.m.
