AUM soccer upsets SCAD

MONTGOMERY, Ala. --- The Auburn University at Montgomery men's soccer team received goals from four different players on Friday, as it upset No. 16 Savannah College of Art and Design, 4-1, at the AUM Soccer Complex.

 With the win, the Senators improved to 6-5-2 on the season, while the Bees fell to 9-3 overall.

 "This was a huge win against a quality opponent," head coach Wulf Koch said. "A win of this caliber should give us good confidence heading into conference play, where every game is of equal importance. We had to make a couple of small changes in our line-up due to some players being out, but we can certainly build off of these last two wins."

 Senior Gunnar Kristinsson, the reigning SSAC Offensive Player of the Week, scored his third goal in the last two games to get the Senators on the board in the ninth minute. Kristinsson netted a cross from sophomore Tornubari Nyonebue that freshman Vitor Silva stopped to set up a shot.

SCAD tied the score at 1-1 in the 18th minute of the match on a goal by Ellert Hreinsson, but Nyonebue gave AUM the lead for good at the 29:25 mark of the opening period with his fifth goal of the season. Junior Chris Ross picked up his team-leading sixth assist on the play.

 In the second half, senior Stefan Arnarson added to the lead in the 57th minute, with his fourth goal of the year, while freshman Clayton Arnez completed the scoring with his second goal on the season in the 83rd minute.

 In goal, junior Steve Keller allowed just the one goal and did not need to make a save on any of the Bees' nine shots.

 For the contest, AUM posted 15 shots, of which Arnez had a team-high four. Senior Stephen Grooms added three shots for the Senators.

 AUM will return to action on Tuesday, Oct. 12, when they travel to Mobile, Ala., to take on conference foe Spring Hill. Kickoff for the contest is slated for 7 p.m.
