RINDGE, NH - The Mercy College men's soccer team fell by a score of 6-0 at defending NCAA Division II national champion Franklin Pierce on Saturday evening. Mercy is now 1-8 overall while the Ravens improved to 7-4-1 on the year.

Just over 13 minutes later, Cole Larned scored on another feed from Goncalves to give the Ravens some breathing room at 2-0. Tsuji then stretched the margin to 3-0 with an assist from Casey Ftorek in the 68th minute and Ftorek added another in the 70th minute. Goncalves netted a goal of his own in the 72nd minute before connecting with Sean Ahern for the final tally in the 89th minute.
Freshman goalkeeper Martin Walsh (Dublin, Ireland) made seven saves for the Mavericks.
