Men's Soccer Opens 2000 With 2-0 Shutout of Colby
September 10, 2000

AMHERST, Mass. Amherst College opened its men soccer season with a 2-0 shutout win over NESCAC rival Colby College Sunday afternoon at Hitchcock Field.

The Jeffs drew first blood at the 22:48 mark when junior midfielder Adrian Talbott (Washington, DC) pounced on a loose corner kick and blasted it past Colby goalkeeper Justin Amirault for a 1-0 lead.

Amherst added another score after the break when first year midfielder Timothy Canon (Easthampton, MA) headed a crossing pass from sophomore forward Patrick Garvey (Suffield, CT) just inside the far post to set the final score at 2-0.

The Jeffs outshot Colby 24-2, while Amirault logged 10 saves for the visiting White Mules. Amherst goalies Bill Orum (Greenwich, CT) and Anders Watson (Chicago, IL) had a quiet afternoon with just one save between them.

Amherst (1-0/1-0 NESCAC) hosts non-conference rival Keene State Tuesday afternoon at 4:30.
