- The Lead: The MIT men's soccer team bounced back from a three-game losing skid with a 4-0 non-conference win at home against Wentworth on Wednesday night in Cambridge. The Engineers pressured the Leopards right from the start to earn their fourth win of the year.
20th minute (19:16) - A long pass from Joshua Wilson (West Chester, Pa.) from midfield found the feet of Ivan Jutamulia (Berkeley, Calif.), who was driving towards the net. Jutamulia then chipped the ball over the hands of the Wentworth keeper from the 10 yard line for the 1-0 lead.
36th minute (35:51) - MIT was awarded a free kick opportunity from the 11 yard line and was taken by Wilson, who curled the ball into the back left corner of the net to double the Engineers advantage.
67th minute (66:49) – Jutamulia notched his second goal of the game and team-leading fourth of the season when he took a short pass from Isaac Perper (Tiburon, Calif.) and lined the ball towards the back left post and into the goal.
88th minute (87:40) – Freshman Kaleb Blake (Los Angeles, Calif.) put home the first goal of his career late in the match on a ball that was saved by Philip Chomicki. Blake took the ball off an original shot by Loukas Carayannopoulos (Westfield, N.J.), who was rewarded with an assist on the goal and initiated the attempted with a shot from about 20 yards away.
