Men’s Soccer Stuns Regis, 4-2, for Second Straight Win

EAST BOSTON – The Suffolk men's soccer team locked up its second straight win in as many games as the Rams routed Regis, 4-2, at James A. Sartori Stadium at East Boston Memorial Park Saturday afternoon.

SCORE: Suffolk 4, Regis 2
RECORDS: Suffolk (3-3) | Regis (3-4)

Alberto Bittan
sandwiched two first frame goals around a Jordan Casey score to put the Rams ahead 3-0 at the half. Regis put two of its own goals around Bittan's third of the day and 11th of the year to attempt a comeback, but Suffolk held onto the 4-2 win.


  • Just over five minutes play, Casey sent a cross from the corner to Bittan, who used a knee-high one-timer volley to put Suffolk on the scoreboard.
  • Less than 10 minutes later, Casey was credited a score. Regis netminder Manny Santiago and Jai Panit had a miscommunication on defense resulting in a 2-0 lead for the Rams.
  • Bittan upped his season total to 10 with 30:13 on the clock in the first frame. The senior forward beat the Pride's goalie and walked the ball into the net.
  • Regis broke open the scoring in the second stanza. Emiky Pires' throw in bounced around the box, before Chris Szarek used his head to cut Suffolk's lead to two, 3-1.
  • Just 28 seconds passed before the Rams edge grew back to three. Bittan sealed his hat trick when the he scored off a cross from Christian Restrepo.
  • Regis continued its comeback attempt and made it a two-goal game once again with just over four minutes remaining. Pires' long throw in found Zach Sindoni, who headed his first goal of the season top shelf. 


  • Kyle Van Cleef turned away two Pride attempts to walk away with his second win of the year.
  • Santiago earned the start for Regis and played 67:55 minutes of action. The starting goalie made six saves and allowed three of the Rams' four goals.
  • Gabriel Montealegre relieved Santiago in between the pipes to open the second half, but only played 22:05 and was removed to the game from injury. In his time he made three stops and let one ball pass.


  • Bittan is the first Ram to registered two hat tricks in one season since Danny Lloyd matched that number in 2010.
  • Suffolk now leads the all-time series 3-2 and has outscored the Pride, 11-10 all-time.
