Bears Stay Undefeated with 2-1 Victory over Pioneers

THROGGS NECK, N.Y. — Freshman Luke Telang and junior Alex Lane each scored as Coast Guard battled back from a 1-0 deficit for the third time this year for a 2-1 victory over the Maritime Pioneers.

The Pioneers started the scoring early as senior Tim Swinehart's throw in found junior Jon Dubowyk's head who flicked it on to junior Kevin Ferreira. Ferreira shot the ball into the right upper corner for the first goal of the game 7:47 into the match.

Ferreira's score was the first goal the Bears have conceded to the Pioneers since 2007.

Telang knotted the game up in the 41st minutes when the ball found his feet on the right side of the Maritime's penalty box. Telang took a hard shot that found the left side of the goal for his second goal of the year in as many matches.

The Bears continued to pressure the Pioneers defense but to no avail until the 77th minute when Lane took a pass from freshman Tyler Furry at the top of the Pioneers eighteen yard box. Lane tucked his shot just off the inside of the left post into the goal for his second of the year and the first assist of Furry's collegiate career.

Coast Guard outshot Maritime 22-10 with 12 of the Bears shots coming on goal.

Senior Richie Burns made one save in a winning effort. Burns and the Bears defense have not allowed more than one goal to any opponent this year.

Junior goalkeeper Karl Webber started the game for the Pioneers making three saves and allowing one goal. Weber was substituted for sophomore Corey Caltano toward the end of the first half. Caltano came on to make six saves but allowed Lane's eventual game winner. Maritime is now 2-4-0 on the season.

Coach Chris Parsons commented on the game saying, "we put ourselves in a hole by conceding a goal off a long throw early. It gave them (Maritime) belief and made our task much more difficult"

Coach Parsons went on to say, "It was important to get the equalizer before the half playing against a strong wind. Luke (Telang) was opportune again, and Alex (Lane) showed great composure with his finsh. In the end, happy to get another victory and to start the season 6-0."

Coast Guard is 6-0-0 for the first time since the 1994 and 1986 team each accomplished the same feat. No team in school history has started a season better. 

Coast Guard men return to action on Saturday, September 20th when they travel to Babson Park, Mass. to take on Babson College. Game time is 1:00 pm.
