NEW ROCHELLE, NY – The Iona College men's soccer team revved its offensive engine in the second half and found itself lapping the Canisius College Golden Griffins in a come-from-behind 4-1 win. Sophomore Tomas Jamett, freshman Mauro Bravo and senior Killian Colombie scored for the Maroon & Gold.
Canisius scored the first goal of the game in the 57'. Filippo Tamburini took a corner kick from Bilel Bai and was able to deliver it into the lower left side. The goal came at a point when the Gaels where outshooting the Golden Griffins by 14, 15-1.
Iona finally broke through in the 65'. Senior Sebastian Gordillo came off the bench and delivered a corner kick in towards the back post where Jamett was waiting. The sophomore defender subtly turned his shoulders and created a deflection that tricked Canisius goalie Bryce Tramuta.
Jamett scored the game-winning goal, and his second of the game, in the 78'. Senior Humbert Ferrer came up from his defensive post and positioned himself as a big body in the box. The captain got possession in the box and found Jamett. Ferrer fed it to his fellow defenseman who then one-timed a shot from 10 yards out.
The Maroon & Gold's final two goals came within 26 seconds of each other. Bravo scored his third goal of the season in the 84'. The one-time MAAC Rookie of the Week cleaned up the mess that was created by freshman Esad Mackic, who initially fired a shot on goal that was punched right toward his classmate.
Colombie scored in the 85' for his team-leading four goal of the season. Bravo had the ball on the left side and slung a lofted pass toward the back right post where Colombie was waiting to stuff it in close.
Iona's next game is on the road against the Marist Red Foxes on Wednesday, Oct. 3.
