Men’s Soccer

Outside of women’s tennis, the only other Saint Anselm team in action on Tuesday night was the men’s soccer team, which won 3-1 over Saint Michael’s.

Sophomore Taylor Silverstein (Concord, N.H.) scored goals in the 20th and 65th minutes, with an additional goal coming off a Saint Michael’s defender in the 63rd minute for the third score.

With four straight wins, the Hawks have tied the 1999 team as the only group to have not earned a draw in their unbeaten starts in program history.

After the game, the team found themselves in 10th in the United Soccer Coaches East Region Coaches’ Poll, the first time they’ve reached that level since Sept. 15, 2015.
