Rookies Rally Men's Soccer to Home Opener Victory

Rookies Rally Men's Soccer to Home Opener Victory

The greenest members of the Chestnut Hill College men's soccer team paved the way for a red-hot second half in the team's home opener opposite University of the District of Columbia (UDC). Freshmen accounted for all three unanswered goals after intermission, with Jason Burns (Douglassville, Pa.) assisting on the tying strike by senior midfielder Nicholas Jaffe (Sao Paulo, Brazil) and fellow forward Jason Doherty (Letterkenney Donegal, Ireland) supplying his first two collegiate tallies as the Griffins pulled away down the stretch for a 3-1 victory, their first of the season. Senior forward Juan Amaya (Cartagena, Colombia) assisted on both of Doherty's markers as first-year head coach Julian Fernandez collected his inaugural win.
