The No. 19 Xavier men's soccer team cruised past Thomas More with a dominating 5-0 victory to remain unbeaten last Thursday. The Musketeers (7-0-2) had strong performances from sophomore midfielder Andrew Jordan and senior forward Luke Spencer as they each netted two goals. Junior Matt Walker also added his fourth goal of the season. Spencer struck the first goal in the fourth minute of the match when he received a cross from junior Adar Cohen. The Musketeers saw a careernight from Jordan as he notched the first two-goal game of his collegiate career. His first goal came in the 37th minute when he ripped a shot off of the outside post. A
series of cross passes set him up for the goal. Spencer's other goal came in the 51st minute when he collected a pass from Jordan and struck the ball inside the near post. This marked Spencer's third two-goal game this season. The fourth goal came in the 56th minute when Matt Walker snuck past
the defense to strike the ball by Thomas More goalkeeper Matt Kees. The final goal came from a cross from junior defender John McDermott, where Jordan headed the ball off of the crossbar and inside the goal. This goal was also the second of the season for him. "Tonight was a solid finish to the first half of our season. We move onto a daunting opening three games with Saint Louis, Butler and Dayton awaiting us," head coach Andy Fleming said. Senior goalkeeper Justin Marshall played only 44 minutes throughout the match and recorded one save. Redshirt freshman Matt Paprocki and senior Andre Bezerra shared the time for the rest of the match.
The Musketeers finished their non-conference schedule and remain unbeaten heading into conference play. They play Saint Louis at 7 p.m. on Friday at the Xavier Soccer Complex.
