Two goals in the last six minutes of play led the Regis College Pride to a 2-1 win over the Albertus Magnus men's soccer team on Monday afternoon in non-conference action.

The Falcons (1-3-0) dominated throughout the contest, outshooting the Pride 30-9, including a 21-6 clip in the second half but two late goals gave Regis its first victory of the season.

Ross Suleski (Amesbury, Mass.) gave the Falcons a 1-0 lead in the first half with his first goal in a Falcon uniform.  In the 21st minute, the Falcons' played the ball into the box where Dan Dwyer (Hamden, Conn.) flicked a pass in the direction of Suleski who netted the Falcons' lone goal of the contest.

After the halftime break, the Falcons controlled the ball for a majority of the second frame.

A header in the 85th minute by Prince Mukala hit off the cross bar but the rebound found the foot of Christian Mukala who scored his first goal of the season.

Two minutes later, Marek Kotecki drilled a shot from just inside of the box to score the eventual game-winning goal.  Kenny Charron played the ball to the feet of Kotecki to give the Pride the win.

Albertus' Donato Piroscafo (Naugatuck, Conn.) made two saves in net for the Falcons, while the Pride's Manny Calderon tallied 14 saves, including 10 in the second half.

Suleski led all players with nine shots, including five on goal.

Albertus returns to action on Wednesday when the Falcons take on Mt. St. Mary (N.Y.) in a 7:00 p.m. road contest.
