Scoring Spurt Leads Men's Soccer Past Webster



TERRE HAUTE, IND. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology scored four first half goals to top Webster University 6-1 in men's soccer action on a rainy Wednesday night at the Engineer Intramural Field.

Six different Engineers scored in the match, led by senior Clint Vatterrodt (Bloomington, Ill./University) with one goal and assists on the first two goals.

Sophomore William Senat (Edmond, Okla./North) put the Engineers on the board with his first goal of the season just 1:50 into the match on a pass from Vatterrodt.

Sophomore Bryce Filho (Monument, Colo./Lewis Palmer) added his first goal from the top of the box.  Vatterrodt added the third score of the match off a corner kick pass from sophomore John Munson (Bloomington, Ill./University).

Sophomore Ben Green (Frisco, Texas/Centennial) pitched in with the last score of the first half on an unassisted score at 43:52 of the match.

Junior Joe Byrd (Danville/Covenant Christian) scored the fifth goal on the match on a breakaway, before Webster's Michael Dennis tallied a penalty kick goal to bring the Gorloks within 5-1.

Sophomore Ryan Rieboldt (Grafton, Wis.) added the night's final score on a crossing pass from Byrd.

Rose-Hulman outshot Webster 20-9 and had a 7-1 edge in corner kicks.  Freshman Drew Miller (Cincinnati, Ohio/Bishop Fenwick) picked up his first college victory in net with four saves.

Rose-Hulman improved to 3-3 on the season and returns to action at Millikin on Saturday.
