The NAIA Preseason #11 University of Maine at Fort Kent men’s soccer team opened their 2010 season with a 2-0 win over Roberts Wesleyan College Thursday evening in Fort Kent, Maine.

Following a scoreless first half, junior forward Keith Williams II (Trinidad & Tobago) scored in the 48th minute on an assist from senior Walford Stewart (St. Elizabeth, Jamaica). Williams beat the RWC (0-1) keeper Eric Read (Webster, NY) high to his right. Senior striker Andre Anderson (Manchester, Jamaica) added the second and final goal of match as he was set up by Luka Odak (Kutina, Croatia) who beat multiple defenders along the Raider end line and found Anderson in front for the score. Read made seven saves on ten UMFK (1-0) shots for RWC while Bengal sophomore keeper David Girouard (Saint-Eustache, Quebec) recorded two saves on two shots for the shutout win.

UMFK will travel to Husson University on September 1 for a 3pm game while Roberts Wesleyan heads to UMaine Machias for a Saturday August 28 game at 3pm.
