UMBC Men’s Soccer Blanks Howard 3-0 on Monday Night in Front of a Record Crowd

Baltimore, Md.— UMBC men's soccer took down Howard, 3-0 with a record crowd on hand at Retriever Soccer Park. 2,873 fans packed the stands and hill, as UMBC got two own goals and a goal from sophomore Colin Weyant (Perry Hall, Md./Perry Hall) in the 80th minute to move to 2-0 on the year.

The Retrievers would add to their score in the 74th minute as Weyant crossed the ball in and was headed in by a Bison defender giving UMBC a 2-0 lead.

He took a beautiful through ball from junior Patrick Jean-Gilles (Woodbridge, Va./South County) and placed it into the right side to make it 3-0 UMBC.
