WEST POINT, N.Y. -
After matching its best start since 2007 in Wednesday's victory over Marist, the Army men's soccer team will host Fordham on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Clinton Field.
The match will be video streamed live on Knight Vision, the Black Knights' subscription-based multimedia platform available through Army's official website (www.goARMYsports.com). Live stats will also be available through GameTracker and in-game Twitter updates will be offered via the men's soccer team's official handle (@Army_MSoccer).
Army (4-0-0) is led offensively by freshmen forwards Ethan Spivack and Nick Williams (two goals apiece), while junior back Sean Mogan and sophomore midfielder Nick Baietti each have a goal and an assist. Senior midfielder Jason Lewis and sophomore midfielder Joseph Chabries have each scored once this season, and junior goalkeeper Winston Boldt has 15 saves and four shutouts through four starts. Boldt's four shutouts this season are the most by a Black Knight keeper since A.J. Glubzinski notched six clean sheets in 2007.
A pair of Black Knights earned Patriot League nods this week, as Boldt was named Goalkeeper of the Week for the second week in a row, and Spivack claimed Rookie of the Week. Boldt made four saves in each of Army's two wins last week, a 2-0 victory over Manhattan and a 1-0 win at Air Force, while Spivack tallied the game winner against the Falcons. Boldt was also named to TopDrawerSoccer.com's National Team of the Week on Monday.
Fordham (2-2-0) has received one goal from five different players this season, while four others have contributed assists. Graduate student Alex Naples has a 0.96 goals against average and one shutout for the Rams this season.
Army will face Fordham for the 27th time on Saturday, with the Black Knights holding a 12-11-3 lead in the all-time series. The most recent meeting came in 2006, when the Rams topped the Black Knights, 3-1.
Following Saturday's action, Army will travel to Hamden, Conn., to face Quinnipiac on Wednesday, Sept. 18. The Black Knights fell, 1-0, in their last meeting with the Bobcats in 2006.
