Cardinals wrap up improved season

Saint Mary’s University’s men’s soccer team wraps up their regular-season play with record improvements.

The Cardinals marked their third straight win of the season against Hamline University on Oct. 18.  Freshman Joe Bosco secured the game-winning goal in the last six minutes of the game.

“That was a tough game, but Joe saved us at the last six minutes,” said Valentine Reyes-Rodriguez, an Immaculate Heart of Mary Seminarian who plays striker.

Not only did this win allow the Cardinals’ winning streak to continue, but it also marked the first time since 2001 that the Cardinals have won three consecutive games.

This is not the only improvement the cardinals made this season regarding their record.  Their 2-0 victory on Oct. 23 ended a 26-year winless streak against the Macalester College Scots.  Sophomore Matt Graber scored both goals for the cardinals.

The Cardinals currently have a 4-5-0 record for conference play and 7-9-1 overall.  They conclude their regular-season games on Saturday, Oct. 27, in Minneapolis against Augsburg.
