BOSTON, MASS. - Six different players scored as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology men's soccer team blew out host University of Massachusetts Boston, 8-0, yesterday afternoon at the Clark Athletic Center on the campus of UMass Boston. The Beacons fall to 6-10-1 on the season, while the Engineers improve to 10-2-1.

Jose Ramon Torradas and Chase Lochmiller were the only multiple goal scorers on the day for MIT with a pair of goals each. Along with Lochmiller, Christopher Barnes, Sanjay Divakaran, and Joseph Sikoscow earned the first points of their careers.

Christopher Desrochers opened the scoring for the Engineers with a header that found the back of the net at 14:36 of the first half. Ryan Sheffler took a cross from Joshua Campoverde at the 37:40 mark of the first half to make it 2-0 in favor of MIT.

MIT busted out in the second session, scoring six times. Torradas netted the half's first two goals, connecting on a pass from Christopher Barnes and then nailed a direct kick that went through the Beacons' wall. Torradas and James Zorich set up Alex Morgan 37 seconds later to give Tech a 5-0 advantage. Morgan then fed Chase Lochmiller for his first collegiate goal. Lochmiller gave Sanjay Divakaran the first assist of his career by scoring in the 80th minute. Joseph Sikoscow, a former goalie who moved to the midfield during the season, converted a penalty kick to post the first goal of his career and the final goal of the game.

In the net, Morgan Mills turned away the only shot he faced in 71:40 of action and Benjamin Pope made one save in the final 18:20 of the game.

MIT will close the regular season on Saturday, Oct. 30 when it hosts Wheaton College in a NEWMAC game at 1:00 p.m.
