Freshman midfielder Danny Lloyd’s (Tegucigalpa, Honduras) goal in the 76th minute lifted the Suffolk University men’s soccer team (4-4 GNAC, 5-8 overall) to a 2-1 win over conference opponent Emmanuel College (1-4-2 GNAC, 3-9-2 overall) on Senior Night Wednesday at Dilboy Stadium in Somerville, Mass.
Lloyd’s pretty game-winner was his second goal of the match. Nick Celia (Hanson, MA) picked up the assist on the play after Lloyd faked left and went right to rip it by Emmanuel’s Carlos Perez.
Lloyd’s first goal of the game came in the 44th minute and gave the Rams a 1-0 lead heading into halftime. Stephen Gaudet received the assist on the play.
Emmanuel’s Gavin Molta tied the game at 1-1 in the 65th minute with an unassisted goal from point blank range.
