Worcester, MA --- Freshman Matt Farrell's (Groveland, MA) first collegiate goal proved to be the game-winner while senior goalkeeper Jeff Wong (Millington, NJ) won his 20th career game in a 3-0 victory over visiting Framingham State in a non-conference men's soccer match on Saturday afternoon at Alumni Field.

Later in the half, junior Eric Crevoiserat (Glastonbury, CT) capitalized on a penalty kick in the 76th minute for his first of the season.
Senior Jeff Wong (Millington, NJ) was called upon to make two saves in the complete game effort for the Engineers. Junior Kiko Anzoategui (Peabody, MA), meanwhile, halted eight shots in the setback for the Rams.
