DETROIT -- Scoring two goals late in the first half, the University of Detroit (4-2-0) defeated the Centenary men’s soccer team (1-7-0), 4-0, Sunday at Titan Field, on the campus of Detroit-Mercy.

Junior Mark Djurovski and senior Jason Massoglia both scored for the Titans with less than three minutes remaining in the opening half, with Massoglia scoring with only two seconds left before the intermission.

After Djurovski’s scored in the 43rd minute, giving Detroit a 1-0 lead, Massoglia beat Centenary goalkeeper James Speed (Corpus Christi, Texas/King) with a header off a Djurovski cross in the 45th minute.

Detroit carried the momentum created by the late goals into the second half, scoring just three minutes after the intermission.

Off a Vahid Assadpour corner kick, Massoglia scored his second goal of the contest, heading the ball past Speed for his team-leading fourth goal of the season in the 48th minute. Massoglia finished the game with two goals and an assist, finishing the weekend with three goals and eight points in Detroit’s two games.

Sophomore Nick Dervedio added a goal for the Titans in the 87th minute.

Shots were in favor of Detroit, 15-12, with the Gents outshooting the Titans, 10-7, in the second half. Junior Ben Caldarera (Katy, Texas/Katy Taylor) led Centenary with four shots.

Making seven saves, Titans junior Sasha Boskovic picked up his third shutout of the season. Speed made three saves for the Gents.

Centenary returns to action Saturday, hosting Valparaiso in a Mid-Continent Conference game at Mayo Field.
