Jon Harris, men’s soccer

  Jon notched a pair of goals in UNH’s victories last week against Bryant (2-1) and UMass (1-0) to help the ‘Cats remain unbeaten on the season.

Jon staked the Wildcats to a 1-0 lead in the 44th minute against Bryant with his first collegiate goal. Jon received a pass from Brad Hilton (Merrimack, N.H.) on the right flank, drawing the Bryant goalkeeper out of net, but was able to get a foot on the ball and fired it into the left side of the net.

 Jon Harris

Additionally, Jon lifted New Hampshire to a 1-0 victory over the University of Massachusetts with just over one minute remaining in double overtime on Saturday. He found the back of the net at 108:35 on a feed from Dylan George (Bangor, Maine), tapping the ball in on a breakaway into an empty UMass net, giving UNH its third win in a row. Jordan Thomas (Mohnton, Pa.) was also credited with an assist on the play.
