Terrier Sports Athletics Men’s soccer celebrates their NEC Championship. Men’s Soccer Wins NEC Championship — Earn Berth In NCAA College Cup I t was a championship 15 years in the making, and needed some second half heroics from Kevin Correa ’16, but the Terriers captured the NEC Men’s title with a 3-2 victory over Bryant. Correa was named Tournament MVP as he tied the game twice in the final 45 minutes. Then in overtime, Andy Cormack ’15 scored the golden goal on a free kick to give the fourth-seeded Terriers the victory. The goal was the third off a set piece for the Terriers, set up when forward Gabriel Bagot ’14 was taken down just outside the left corner of the 18-yard box. Cormack calmly stepped up and hit a laser to the far post that sailed over the outstretched arms of the Bryant keeper and into the upper netting. The title was the first for the St. Francis (12-5-1) program since 1998 and fifth in school history. The Terriers went on to face Penn State in the opening round of the NCAA College Cup, falling 1-0 against the 16th ranked Nittany Lions. Following the season, Correa was named a Third Team All-American and head coach Tom Giovatto was named the NSCAA North Atlantic Region Coach NEC Commissioner Noreen Morris with Senior Captain of the Year. ● John Johansson ’14, and game winner Andy Cormack ’15. 12  |  ST.
