Mike Ford

Leicester, MA --- Mike Ford (Whitman, MA) scored the lone goal 11:28 into the game to propel WPI to a 1-0 road win over Becker in a Worcester City Men's Soccer Tournament contest on Sunday afternoon.

WPI goalkeeper Kirk Dragsbaek (Sherborn, MA) made one save as the Engineers improved to 2-1 on the season.  It was the eighth career win for Dragsbaek and his fourth career shutout. The Engineers will play again on Wednesday when they host Wentworth at 7pm.

Becker goalkeeper Tim McDonald (Holden, MA) kept the Hawks in the game with ten saves. With the loss Becker fell to 0-2 on the season. The Hawks will travel to Mass. Maritime on Wednesday night for a 7pm tilt with the Buccaneers.
