PITTSBURGH -- No. 21 Point Park University blanked Penn State-Beaver, 10-0, in a non-conference men's soccer game Monday at Highmark Stadium to win its fourth game in a row.
The Pioneers (8-2, 2-0 KIAC) scored seven goals the second half to pour on the rout versus Penn State-Beaver (7-7, 6-2 PSUAC).
Many players got in the scoring act for Point Park, and it was defender Paul Carr leading the way with three goals -- one off a corner kick and two off of free kicks. Carr's header in the eighth minute got the scoring started on Jonty Loukes' free kick.
Before the first half was through, the Pioneers got goals from Lucas Godinho off an assist from Rejep Mukhammedov in the 23rd minute and from Loukes, who smashed home a rebound from his own missed penalty attempt in the 42nd minute.
Monday's game was the second game in a stretch of five games in eight days for the Pioneers. Point Park rested starters Lucas Silva and Max Flick the first half, but they both came on for the final 45 minutes and figured heavily in the second-half barrage.
Silva had two goals and an assist, and Flick picked up two assists. Also with a big game was Gabiel Colombo, who dished out two assists and scored a goal in his first game back from injury in over one month.
Colombo fed Silva for a goal in the 61st minute and a 4-0 lead. Three minutes later, he dropped off a nice pass to Marius Seager, who beat PSU-Beaver keeper Matthew Cottage low and left.
Silva got his second goal in the 71st minute with Flick assisting on the play. The lead grew even more when Silva's free kick set up Carr for a header on the left post. A few minutes later, Flick played a corner kick to Carr on the far right post, who knocked it in for his hat trick.
Colombo (78th minute) and Khaled Zena (88th minute) scored unassisted goals to pushed the scored to double digits.
Point Park registered a 36-5 advantage in shots and 15-2 in corner kicks. Derrik Whiten played all 90 minutes as the Pioneers' keeper and picked up the shutout with two saves.
Point Park continues its busy week at home Wednesday versus Washington & Jefferson for Senior Night. Kickoff is 6 p.m. at Highmark Stadium.
