Holbrook Makes Outstanding Save on Free Kick in Second Half


MADISON, N.J. — Goucher found itself down by two goals less than 15 minutes into today's Landmark Conference game against Drew, which was not a good thing considering that the Rangers had surrendered only three goals to their first nine opponents this season.

The 2-0 score held up into the second half until the Rangers (4-2-4, 2-0 Landmark) picked up some insurance in the form of a goal by Jonah Silk, which closed out the scoring in a 3-0 victory over head coach Gary Dunda's Gophers.

Sam Nepveux (2:28) and Anthony Pisani (14:47) tallied the first two goals for Drew.

The Gophers (5-5-1, 0-2 Landmark) had two scoring chances in the second half. David Brigandi, who started in goal for the Rangers, made his only save of the contest in the 61st minute on a shot by Andrew Bull (Doylestown, Pa./Central Bucks West), and a shot by Will Lonczak (Newburgh, N.Y./Oakwood Friends School) in the 85th minute was barely wide.

Justin Holbrook (Claymont, Del./Wilmington Friends School) made three saves during the 77:27 he was in goal for Goucher. His final save in the 75th minute was of the outstanding variety as he stopped a long free kick that was crushed by Greg Zizik.
