SUNY Delhi men’s soccer blanks SUNY Martime in season opener


DELHI -  Delhi Men’s Soccer hosted SUNY Maritime in their season opener at home, Monday, Sept. 4, defeating the Pioneers 2-0. The Broncos’ defense led the way, not allowing a single shot on goal.

Freshman Roberto Velasquez-Osorio scored the first college goal of his career with an excellent strike to start the scoring in the 23rd minute, assisted by Erik Kleczkowski. He consistently posed a threat in the attack.

In the 54th minute, they added to their goal total when Kleczkowski found Anthony Cuellar in the middle of the box with a short cross, putting the Broncos ahead 2-0.

Klecskowski doubled his career assists in one match. 

The Delhi backline dominated the entire 90 minutes, allowing only four total shots, none of which threatened the goal.

Four players made their SUNY Delhi debuts, with freshman Velasquez, Aidan Gaughan, Matthew Pozo, and Garrett Gill seeing their first collegiate action.
