Washington, DC - The York College men’s soccer team continued their winning ways with an 8-0 victory over the Bison from Gallaudet University. With the victory in this Capital Athletic Conference contest the #3 Spartans improve to 11-0 and 4-0 in the CAC while the Bison fall to 0-11 and 0-4 in the CAC.

The Spartans scored just two minutes into the game with a goal from junior Justin Suchoski (Langhorne, Pa. /Neshaminy) off an assist from junior Jon Ports (Baltimore, Md/John Carroll School). Ports would tally the next two goals for the Spartans scoring goals in the 4th minute and 11th minute off assists from Suchoski and freshman Kemal Nuspahic (East Petersburg, Pa./ Warwick) respectively. Nuspahic would then go on to tally the seventh goal of his young career on an assist from senior Kurt Lane (Cochranville, Pa. /Octora) with just less than five minutes in the half.

After the halftime break, the Spartans scored just two minutes into the second frame as Mike Duff (Hughesville, Pa/Hughesville) recorded his first collegiate goal off an assist from senior Mark Turkewitz (York, Pa/Dallastown).

The Spartans would find the back of the net three more times to close out the 8-0 victory, with Turkewitz finishing off the game with his first goal in a Spartan uniform.
