BEVERLY, Mass. – The Endicott men's soccer team traveled to Plymouth State on Saturday afternoon and came away with a 2-0 victory.
The Gulls got on the board in the 23rd minute when freshman Arian Pilja (Arlington, Mass.) netted his first career goal on a fast break.
At the 59:36 mark, Evan Couchot (Mason, Ohio) found the back of the net to tally his 24th career goal, which ties the program all-time career goals record. Pilja got the play started on a corner kick and then Couchot headed the ball past the Plymouth State netminder.
The Panthers offense continued to look for scoring opportunities in the second half but the Endicott defense stepped up to halt their advances and secure the shutout.
