Washington, D.C. – Marymount University’s men’s soccer team set a program record for goals in a game with a 10-1 victory over Gallaudet on Tuesday night. The Saints had previously tallied nine goals on multiple occasions and broke the record en route to their third-straight win.
Seven different Saints (5-6-1) scored in the victory, led by Cherif Moktefi’s hat-trick. Kjell Crooke added a pair while Onar Yousefi scored once and dished out four assists.
Nathan Blumschein led off the scoring bonanza in the eighth minute with the help of Yousefi. Adam Freitas added another exactly five minutes later at 13:20 to give MU a 2-0 advantage.
Not holding back, Crooke logged both his scores within 5:42 of each other. He notched his first goal of the game at the 14:23 mark with an assist from Graham Sutherland and added an unassisted goal at 20:05.
Crooke had a helping hand in the Saints’ next goal, assisting on a Santos Cerda score to put Marymount up 5-0 early in the second half at the 52:21 mark.
That goal would set off a three-goal scoring flurry by Moktefi over a three and a half minute span. Recording his first goal at 54:23 off a corner kick from Yousefi, Moktefi added another just 35 seconds later and completed the hat trick at the 57:58 mark with the help of Yousefi once again.
Not content with assists, Yousefi added a goal of his own in the 77th minute. Blumschein repaid the favor from the opening goal of the game with the assist.
After allowing a late goal by the Bison (1-10), Bobby Pope notched the record-setting score in the 85th minute with Yousefi’s fourth helper of the game.
Marymount returns to action on Saturday, October 9, in Capital Athletic Conference action at York (Pa.).
