The stretch of home games continued for the men’s soccer team this past weekend as the Bulldogs welcomed Baruch College in the second game of a Brooklyn College double header. A dominant performance from the Bulldogs sent Baruch packing with a final score of 3-0, extending their winning streak to three straight.
Both teams had a slow start, as Brooklyn and Baruch each went into the break scoreless with the game tied up at zero. But everything changed in the 51st minute as junior midfielder Ahmed Aly (#9) cracked open the scoreboard for the Bulldogs, netting in his fourth goal of the season and second goal in two consecutive matches. Midway through the second half, sophomore midfielder/forward Kevin Pluviose (#5) gave Brooklyn a comfortable lead, scoring a second goal in the 74th minute. It was his first goal of the season, and the sophomore wasn’t finished yet. He continued his string of goals into the 79th minute connecting on his second goal of the game and season, which iced the game for Brooklyn, going on to complete the shutout over the Bearcats.
Goalkeeper Uktu Tanritanir (#0) went for his second consecutive shutout with a 6-0 win over Medgar Evers last week and this weekend’s 3-0 victory against Baruch. The win moves the Bulldogs into the third seed in the CUNYAC standings. They are now tied for third place with the College of Staten Island and Baruch with 12 points each.
