RUNDOWN ON THE RAMS
Coming off its first result of 2015, a 1-1 tie with Mount Ida, Suffolk brings a 0-3-1 overall record into non-conference action Monday night.
Three different Rams are responsible for the team's three goals with Ben Daniels, Alvin Di and Eugenio Ottino each netting scores. Ottino's goal came off a good PK in the 2015 season opener. Jordan Casey has also notched a point, handing out Suffolk's lone assist.
LITTLE BIT 'BOUT THE LYNX
Lesley is off to a 0-4 start this season after being shut out by Babson College, 6-0, in its latest contest.
Ryan Richardson is responsible for both of the Lynx's goals and Marcel Howard has one assist to his credit.
Both of Lesley's keepers have seen action with Chase Donley making all four starts. The senior goalie has notched 19 saves, but owns a 4.05 goals-against average while James Webb turned away six attempts for a .667 save percentage in 70:50 minutes of action.
In the midst of a three-game road swing, the Rams continue to play away from home Thursday, Sept. 17 when they visit Regis at 7 p.m.
