NORTON, Mass. – Seniors Patrick Palermo-Re and Quintin Parsons each scored their first goals of the season as Coast Guard picked up its first New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) win with a 2-0 shutout of Wheaton.
Coast Guard improves to 3-5-2 overall and 1-2 in NEWMAC play while Wheaton suffered its first conference loss of the season dropping to 5-6 overall and 2-1 in conference play.
Palermo-Re got the Bears on the board in the 24th minute with an unassisted goal, when he bent a shot over the keeper and just under the cross bar for the 1-0 lead.
Parsons would give the Bears an insurance goal in the 63rd minute on a header with Noah Harper picking up his first assist of the season a great service to the back post.
"After two tough conference losses to start the season we really got a great result today," said Coast Guard head coach Chris Parsons. "The entire team played great and our goals were excellent and a big lift for our guys."
Wheaton had a slight 18-16 edge in shots.
Junior Dakota Harich (2-4-1) made five saves to register his second shutout of the season. He also shutout Merchant Marine on Sept. 8th.
