What a home coming.

The York College men’s soccer team scored eight goals to win a dominating game against St. Joseph’s College, 8-0, in its home opener on Tuesday.

The goals were the most scored in a game by the Cardinals since September 4, 2008, when the team routed Yeshiva University, 14-3. York is now 2-3 on the season.

Cardinals’ offense had a field day with St. Joseph (0-1). Brian Broadbelt, Andre Adelson and Rohan Burrell notched two goals apiece to led York to victory.

Burrell, who was named CUNY Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week, started the scoring early in the eighth minute when he received a pass on the sidelines from Remi Molake and fired a shot that beat the goalkeeper. He then chipped in another goal in the 26th minute as well.

Adelson, who didn’t enter the contest until late in the first half, wasted little time, scoring his first goal in the 31st minute off an assist from McLaney Moise and then another in the 49th minute from Michael Delgado.

The game wasn’t all about offense though. Cardinals’ goalkeeper Leszek Stankiewicz had three saves to earn the shutout.

York will begin CUNY Athletic Conference matches when they face Brooklyn College on Saturday.
