FITCHBURG – The Framingham State men’s soccer team defeated Fitchburg State by a score of 4-0 on Saturday afternoon in MASCAC action at Elliot Field in Fitchburg.

With the loss, the Falcons end their season at 1-14.

HOW IT HAPPENED:  

  • Framingham State grabbed a 1-0 advantage at the 31:31 mark when sophomore Jeffson Malachie (Port-au-Prince, Haiti) received a feed from classmate Kumphel Sinha (Darjeeling, India) and tucked the ball inside the near post for his second goal of the season. 

  • The Rams doubled their margin seven minutes later as senior Giovanni Green (Montego Bay, Jamaica) found Malachie off a free kick from 20 yards out before Malachie headed the ball into the left side of the net for his second tally of the contest to make the score 2-0 going into the half. 
  • Following the intermission, the Fitchburg State threatened midway through the second half with juniors Dylan McCall (Burlington, Conn.) and Rizkhan Muhwezi (Attleboro) putting back-to-back shots on target, but Rams keeper Jake Hartshorn (Chelmsford) denied both shots.  
  • Framingham State secured the victory in the 81st minute of action when freshman Breyner Depina (Fogo, Cape Verde) settled a loose ball in front of the net and connected on his second marker of the 2021 campaign. Malachie scored his third of the game moments late resulting in the 4-0 final.
