NEWPORT, R.I. - Salve Regina University athletics resumes its summer series with a daily flashback to the top five moments of 2016-17 for each of its 19 varsity sports. Beginning with Memorial Day (Monday, May 29, 2017) and finishing with the final day of August, 95 moments (19 x 5) will be shared to relive the most exciting happenings of the most recent Seahawk season.
The Salve Regina University men's soccer team earned its first Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) victory of the season by defeating Eastern Nazarene 1-0 at Gaudet Field. For most of the first half play was happening in the midfield as both teams struggled to possess in the final third. In the 37th John Julian took a pass from Christopher Anderson and in crowd, fired it to the net from 20 yards away. Julian's rolling shot missed the hands of the keeper and ricocheted off the left post and into the goal.
